    LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s girls basketball team has a lot of players who do several things well. But the Commodores can’t seem to do nearly everything well for an entire game.
    The latest evidence of that was their 46-33 PLAC loss to Springs Valley Tuesday afternoon.
    In the first half they hit a decent 6 of 10 free throws and held Springs Valley star Caitlyn Reynolds to two points.

  • Perry Central, Tell City to...

    For many years Tell City’s biggest rivalry in nearly every sport was with Jasper, with South Spencer not far behind and Heritage Hills also on the radar.
    Now it seems clear that the Marksmen’s biggest rivalry is with Perry Central, its neighbor just up the highway 15 miles.
    Those two will renew their rivalry in boys basketball Wednesday at 7:15 p.m. in the first round of the PSC Holiday Classic at Tell City’s Bryan Taylor Arena.

  • Cannelton boys fall in two games...

    AUSTIN—Austin scored a lot of points inside on drives, offensive rebounds and Cannelton turnovers to beat the Bulldogs 76-37 in the first round of the Scott County Invitational boys basketball tourney Thursday.
    “It was the same old bugaboos we’ve had all year: We had a lot of turnovers and gave them a lot of second-chance points,” said Cannelton Coach Michael Snyder.
    “And our defense on the ball has got to get better. We let too many people drive right by us.”

  • Tigers nip Cannelton in final...

    SCOTTSBURG—Josh Thomas hit four free throws in the last 13 seconds to lift Crothersville past Cannelton 57-54 in the seventh-place game of the Scott County Invitational boys basketball tourney Friday.
    After falling behind 40-24 in the first half, Cannelton used strong defense in the second half to take the lead several times in the fourth quarter - but never by more than three points.
    That defense included David Reed’s guarding Thomas in a diamond-and-one and holding him without a field goal in the second half.

  • Hot Marksmen smoke Lanesville

    LANESVILLE—Tell City hit 60.5 percent from the field to beat Lanesville 53-29 in girls basketball Thursday.
    Tell City worked the ball inside frequently to center Kammie Jo Hayes, who hit 10 of 12 shots from the field against the shorter Eagles.
    Emma Kohnert had six assists for the Marksmen and Katie Goffinet added four.
    “They both did a nice job feeding Kammie Jo in the post,” said Tell City Coach John Hayes.

    CANNELTON—South Spencer played tight defense on Cannelton’s top two scorers and beat the Bulldogs 52-25 in girls basketball Wednesday.
    The Rebels at least double-teamed Cannelton center Caressa Sloss any time she got the ball in the low post - and often before.
    “We wanted to keep her off the boards and make sure we kept a body on her,” said South Spencer Coach Jason Mayes. “We knew she’s been a force lately.”
