FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - It comes as no surprise that Canterbury girls basketball is in the 1A state championship Saturday.

The Lady Cavaliers (24-2) are the most prolific offense in the state (all classes), averaging 82.2 points per game. Their 30.4 average margin of victory also is tops statewide.

Forward Kindell Fincher averages a double-double this season with 21.2 points and 12.2 rebounds per game. Forward Bailey Farley adds 18.7 points and 7.5 rebounds, guard Darby Maggard adds 17.4 points and Aaliyah Gaines averages 11.4 points per game.

Canterbury's two losses were at Snider and at South Side in November. Convincing wins over 2A, 3A and 4A schools all season long put the Cavs in the driver's seat for another state championship.

Canterbury looks for their fourth state title in five years. Conversely, Northeast DuBois.

Canterbury head coach Scott Kreiger talked about another great season for the Lady Cavs and his hopes for another state title.

Canterbury plays Northeast DuBois in the IHSAA 1A Girls Basketball State Championship at 10:30 a.m. Saturday on NBC33.
