  • Tell City defeats Bulldogs

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s full-court press helped force 32 Cannelton turnovers as the Marksmen won 70-35 in boys basketball Saturday.

    “I think this group has a whole lot more athleticism than last year’s team,” said Tell City Coach John Hayes. “I think when we started pressing a little bit, obviously that was the turning point.”

    Cannelton jumped to an early 4-0 lead as center T.J. James hit two free throws after being fouled inside and scored a field goal inside.

  • PC pulls away from Eagles

    “I thought our defensive pressure made the difference,” said Perry Central Coach Bill Dickerson. “They’re pretty big but we made it hard for them to run their half-court offense.”
