Ironwood Ridge had a difficult time shaking Basha last night but the Nighthawks pulled away with a 51-46 win to improve to 7-1 in power ranking games. Oh, and along the way, senior standout Lexy Ram set an important scoring milestone.

Ram came into the game with 987 career points, which already put her as the leading scorer in school history, but it’s the success of her team over the last couple of years that has set her on the path as the school’s best ever.

It seemed like Ironwood Ridge was always on the brink of greatness. A 24-win season in 2011 resulted in a second-round loss, a 19-win season came with an early playoff exit as did an earlier 18-win season. Something was missing.

Then last year happened..
