  • Bulldog girls hold on with four...

    COLUMBUS—Melissa Clausen handled the ball well and hit 4 of 6 free throws in the last two minutes as shorthanded Cannelton held off Columbus Christian 52-42 in girls basketball Saturday.
    Columbus Christian, with four new girls on its roster this year, shot well early and jumped to a quick lead.
    Behind Mikah Hemmings’ 29 points and Allicyn Garrett’s 18 rebounds, Cannelton came back, though, eventually building a 12-point lead with four minutes left in the game.

  • Poor defense costs Bulldogs in...

    COLUMBUS—Cannelton boys basketball coach Brian Garrett had a simple reason for his team’s 97-87 loss to Columbus Christian Saturday: “We just didn’t defend.
    “We scored 87 points and got beat by 10. Defensively we’ve got to do something different. I don’t know if we start working on gimmicks or what.”
    He said the Bulldogs struggled trying to play zone defenses early in the season so he has had them playing man-to-man almost exclusively in recent games.

    The Commodores hit 6 of 23 from two-point range and 3 of 22 from three-point range.

    Heritage Hills was also cold most of the game and led just 29-23 with three minutes left.

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central hit 59.1 percent from the field, including 67.6 percent from two-point range, to clobber Southridge 62-35 in boys basketball Friday.

    “We shot about as well as we could (23 of 34) from two-point range,” said Perry Central Coach Matt Carter.

    One reason for that was 17 of those baskets were layups.

    Some of them came in the Commodores’ half-court offense, as they worked the ball well and cut crisply into the lane without the ball.

  • Marksman girls hold off...

    TELL CITY—Tell City held off a late rally by Boonville to beat the Pioneers 41-37 in girls basketball Thursday.

    The Marksmen built a nine-point lead early in the fourth quarter.

    “Then for some reason we went on a shooting spree, taking some really quick, bad shots,” said Tell City Coach John Lyons. “And they hit three threes in the fourth quarter (two by reserve Kaitlyn Torres).”

    The Pioneers eventually cut Tell City’s lead to one.
