    ORLEANS—Perry Central’s boys basketball team never knows who its scoring leaders will be from game to game, or even half to half. So it’s hard for opposing defenses to key on anyone.
    Friday Derek Thomas had the hot hand in a four-minute stretch in the second quarter that propelled the Commodores past Orleans 58-49 in a key PLAC game.

    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.
