  • Graves propels PC past Tell City...

    Sports Editor

    LINCOLN CITY—On paper, Monday’s Tell City versus Perry Central matchup in the PSC Girls Holiday Tip-Off tourney appeared to be pretty even.
    But the absence of Tell City’s McKenzie and Kassidie Hayes due to the flu left Tell City without the size to match up with 6-foot-1 Perry Central center Ashley Graves. Graves dominated inside with 18 points and 18 rebounds as Perry Central won 49-28.
    Perry Central also played strong defense, using mostly a 1-3-1 zone with quick Brittany Parker out front and Graves on the back.

    TELL CITY—Tell City dominated the rebounding at both ends to beat Cannelton 32-10 in eighth grade girls basketball Thursday.
    The Marksmen built a 10-4 halftime lead as they scored all six of their second-quarter points on rebound baskets, including one possession on which they shot five times.
    “We just don’t have any girls with height,” Cannelton Coach Josh Marshall said of his team’s rebounding problems.

  • No clear favorite in Class 2A...

    In a recent eight-day period, I saw six of the seven teams in the Class 2A Southridge boys basketball sectional play.
    The only team in that sectional I have not seen is North Posey, which had a good team last year but entered Friday’s games 0-3 as it adjusts to a first-year coach.
    So I likely have seen all the serious contenders for the sectional crown. But I can’t really tell you who the favorite is, as there doesn’t appear to be a clear favorite.

  • Tell City girls’ shooting hot in...

    LYNNVILLE—McKenzie Hayes had 16 points, 11 rebounds, 10 blocks and five assists as Tell City beat Tecumseh 55-31 in PAC girls basketball Thursday.
    It was the second time in Hayes’ career that she has reached double figures in three statistical categories. She hit 6 of 13 shots from the field and 4 of 6 free throws.
    She also had plenty of help. Logan Flannagan added 14 points in 5 of 7 field-goal shooting and 4 of 5 free throws. She scored all her field goals in the second half.

  • Commodores’ inside game downs...

    ORLEANS—Ashley Graves shook off some foul trouble to score 23 points as Perry Central beat Orleans 54-32 in PLAC girls basketball Thursday.
    Perry Central jumped to a 28-14 lead, but Coach Bill Dickerson then sat Graves and Edwards out for the closing minutes of the second quarter because each had two fouls.
    Orleans then scored the last seven points of the half and the first two of the third quarter to cut the gap to 28-23. Then Graves picked up her third foul.

  • Braves pound boards in 2nd half...

    TELL CITY—Though struggling in some areas, Tell City’s boys basketball team has rebounded well this season. Until the second half Friday.
    The Marksmen grabbed only one rebound in the first 14 1/2 minutes of the second half as they lost to Tecumseh 49-36.
    Tell City led 24-20 at halftime and had outrebounded the Braves 14-11 to that point.

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central dictated the tempo in defeating Springs Valley 80-50 in PLAC boys basketball Friday.
    Perry Central Coach Matt Carter said, “To start the game we wanted to start our pressure and see if it would take its toll over the course of the game. In the beginning we gave up some dribble penetration and some easy shots early. Over the course of the game, in the second and third quarters, we got some turnovers and easy baskets.”

  • Christian Academy holds off...

    CANNELTON—Cannelton hit only 20.9 percent from the field and 48.4 percent at the free-throw line in a 37-35 girls basketball loss to Christian Academy of Indiana Saturday.
    “We just came out flat and we never did have a good spurt,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett.
    Taylor Lawalin’s leaving the game with a knee injury midway through the third quarter didn’t help the Bulldogs’ cause.
