  • Aces' hot shooting knocks off Tell City

    LINCOLN CITY—When two reserves combine for 33 points on 63 percent field-goal shooting, it usually bodes well for their basketball team and poorly for their opponent.

    Such was the case in Owensboro Catholic’s 61-48 win over Tell City for fifth place in the PSC Holiday Classic Saturday.

    Neil Lanham, a 6-foot-4 senior, was the ninth man to enter the game for the Aces but led them with 20 points on 8 of 13 field-goal shooting and 3 of 5 free throws.

  • Rappites beat Bulldogs

    CANNELTON—Strong offensive rebounding and three-point shooting fueled a hot start that carried New Harmony past Cannelton 67-44 in the Bulldog Invitational boys basketball tourney Saturday evening.

    The Rappites hit 6 of 12 three-point shots in the first half as they built a 42-9 lead.

    They also grabbed 10 offensive rebounds that half and scored directly off four of them.

    They built a 24-0 first-quarter lead with four three-point baskets, three rebound baskets, a transition layup, a 12-footer from the wing, and two free throws.

  • Crusaders nip Bulldogs

    CANNELTON—Cannelton was unable to hit free throws late in a 46-43 loss to Columbus Christian in the first game of the Bulldog Invitational boys basketball tourney Saturday morning.

    The Bulldogs trailed 44-41 with 43 seconds left when Jordan Mattingly scored on a rebound basket.

    Mattingly was fouled on the play and went to line with a chance to tie the game, but he committed a lane violation on the shot.

    Cannelton immediately committed a foul to send the Crusaders to the foul line for a double bonus. They missed both free throws.

    The quicker Bulldogs did force 27 West Washington turnovers.
