Assistant HS Coach Lindsay Houin '06 Celebrates Indiana Basketball Title

"I told them they'd be nervous until about a minute or two into the game. After that, it's just a game -- same floor, same baskets as we've been used to."

Houin, assistant girl's basketball coach at Plymouth High School and 2006 graduate of DePauw University, celebrated her team's 47-46 victory over Indianapolis Bishop Chatard for the Class 3-A state girl's basketball title. 

The South Bend Tribune's Al Lesar writes, "Influence has filtered down from years of success in the Plymouth program. In 2001, 2006 wbb 1.jpgthe Pilgrims were state runners-up behind Indianapolis Cathedral. One of the leaders of that team was Lindsay Houin, a first-year assistant under her ol' coach Dave Cox this season."

That team lost in the state finals, 54-39. "Houin has had her share of basketball success since her Plymouth days. She was a three-year starter at DePauw and led her team to the NCAA Division III Elite Eight as a senior," Lesar notes. But tonight, Houin is a state champ.
