PORTAGE — Lakeshore's Paige Lies is very capable of getting past defenders with her quick first step. When she's also hitting outside shots, stopping her becomes extremely difficult.

Lies led the Lancers to a 48-43 victory over Portage Central in Wednesday's Division 1 girls basketball district semifinal at Portage Northern, scoring a game-high 26 points and shooting 5-for-6 from beyond the arc.
