  • Forest Park overtakes Perry...

    BOONVILLE—The inside-outside combination of Jordan Myers and Nathan Bromm led a fourth-quarter comeback that saw Forest Park overtake Perry Central 58-55 in the first round of the Class 2A boys basketball sectional Tuesday.

    Perry Central hit 8 of 12 field-goal attempts in the third quarter, including 3 of 4 from three-point range, to build a 40-33 lead.

    The Commodores still led by seven points a minute into the fourth quarter after Ian Hahus scored on a backdoor cut with a nice assist from Reuben Y. Schwartz.

  • Heritage Hills staves off PC...

    LINCOLN CITY—Perry Central scored 42 points in 11:17 in the second half but fell short to Heritage Hills 67-63 in boys basketball Friday.

    The Commodores trailed 44-20 before Alex Rogier hit two free throws with 4:17 left in the third quarter to start their comeback.

    They actually took the lead briefly, 62-61, on two free throws by T.J. Lamon with 1:00 left in the game.

    The Patriots regained the lead 24 seconds later as Collin Southwood was fouled inside and made two free throws.

  • TC nips Day School

    TELL CITY—Tell City held off an Evansville Day school rally and beat the Eagles 56-52 in boys basketball Friday.

    “We were up by 13 with 3:15 to play in the fourth quarter and on three trips down the floor we took a couple of bad shots and turned the ball over,” said Tell City Coach John Hayes.

    The Marksmen committed 10 of their 15 turnovers in the second half.

    With less than three minutes left in the game Day School’s Ethan Black made a layup to cut Tell City’s lead to 10, 54-44.

  • Do local teams have sectional...

    I am a firm believer that a basketball team needs to have some positive momentum going into a playoff tourney to win a championship.

    The best team to prove this would be the New York Nets of the old ABA.

    Led by the great Julius “Dr. J” Erving, they won the ABA championship in 1974.

    The next year they had an even better regular-season record, 58-26, but they were stumbling down the stretch. And they lost 4-1 in the first round of the playoffs to the Spirits of St. Louis, who were 32-52 in the regular season.

  • Archers fall in two meets

    TELL CITY—A numbers shortage contributed to Tell City’s junior high wrestling losses Tuesday and Thursday.

    The Archers lost to Boonville 57-48 Tuesday and to Southridge 61-41 Thursday.

    Tell City and Southridge each won seven matches actually wrestled Thursday. But Southridge won four matches by forfeits while Tell City won only one that way (another match was a double forfeit).

    Tell City earned four pins, only one fewer than Southridge.

    Travis Brinksneader, Grant Bolin, Justin Alvarez and C.J. Rowe scored the Archers’ pins.

  • Reserves help Tell City beat...

    TELL CITY—Tell City got some key scoring from reserves inside and outside to beat North Posey 66-54 in PAC boys basketball Saturday.

    Playing just 17 hours after a physical game with Heritage Hills concluded, the Marksmen displayed good hustle and energy, making 16 steals.

    But they still trailed 35-32 with two minutes left in the third quarter.

    Then reserves Mike Maddle and Jamal Noland led a 21-10 Tell City run that put the Marksmen up 53-45 with 3:14 left in the game.

  • Commodores down Braves

    LYNNVILLE—Perry Central hit 61.3 percent from the field to beat Tecumseh 58-55 in boys basketball Saturday.

    Tecumseh pulled within one, 53-52, on a rebound basket by Rex Nuhring with 0:56 left.

    On Perry Central’s ensuing possession the Braves fouled Ryan Hanan. He made both free throws to increase the Commodores’ lead to three.

    The Braves missed two shots on their next possession and were forced to foul again.

    Perry Central forward Reuben A. Schwartz made 1 of 2 free throws and Hanan made two with 0:06 left to seal the win.
