    TELL CITY—Tell City’s boys basketball team, learning its third offensive system under its third coach in three years, took some small steps forward in Saturday’s 70-53 loss to Forest Park.
    Senior guard Brian Arnold scored a game-high 26 points for the Marksmen, their highest individual total in three games this season.
    And the team improved its field-goal percentage to 42.9 percent after hitting less than 30 percent in its first two games.

  • Let’s have new league take place...

    The Evansville Icemen, a minor league hockey team, surprised a lot of people, including me by drawing crowds as large as 9,403 for a game last season.
    When I read that they needed an average attendance of 3,000 to make money under their lease in the new Ford Center, I didn’t think they could do it, considering the Evansville Triplets, a top-level (Class AAA) minor league baseball team averaged only about half that attendance in the late 1970s and early ’80s and baseball is more popular in southwestern Indiana than hockey is.

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central used a full-court press to jump to a 16-0 lead and crushed Crawford County 68-38 in PLAC girls basketball Thursday.
