  • Commodores block South Spencer...

    LEOPOLD—Ian Hahus blocked Mac Webb’s shot at the buzzer to preserve Perry Central’s 61-60 boys basketball win over South Spencer Saturday.

    “We went to a full-court, man-to-man defense and pressured them into a tough shot,” said Perry Central Coach Matt Carter. “It came up short. Ian knew (South Spencer) had a second to catch and shoot and he timed his jump.”

    South Spencer’s Tristan Brown, hobbling on an injured ankle, made a three-point shot from the volleyball spiking line to tie the game 57-57 with 1:35 left.

  • Tell City falls in OT

    FORT BRANCH—Gibson Southern hit 60.5 percent from the field to beat Tell City 61-58 in overtime in PAC boys basketball Saturday.

    The Titans scored all 20 of their two-point field goals on layups—some on drives, some on backdoor cuts, two on offensive rebounds, and one on a fast break off a Tell City turnover.

    When Tell City played a zone defense, the Titans would make several passes to try to spread the zone out and then attack the middle with a pass or drive.

    Against man-to-man defense, they often made successful backdoor cuts.

    Froehlich beat Jordan Adams of Evansville Memorial 2-0 in the championship match to raise his season record to 42-0.

    He pinned Jesse Hohl of Evansville Central in 0:49 and decisioned Justin Van Winkle of Mater Dei 6-0 to advance to the finals.

  • Missed free throws cost Bulldogs

    CANNELTON—Cannelton missed 16 of 37 free throws in a 69-57 girls basketball loss to Hancock County Saturday.

    Cannelton outshot the Hornets from the field 45.7 percent to 39.7 percent.

    “We played man-to-man defense pretty well against them,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett. “We played better man-to-man than we did zone—we were helping and rotating a little on the weak side.”

    The Hornets jumped to a 13-0 lead in the opening minutes against Cannelton’s zone.
