  • Tell City girls fall to Jeeps

    DUBOIS—Cold shooting and poor ball-handling hurt Tell City in a 51-31 girls basketball loss to Northeast Dubois Thursday.

    “We didn’t play very well,” said Tell City Coach John Lyons. “We couldn’t hit a thing and we just made unforced turnovers, one after another.”

    Senior guard Lauren Goffinet, returning after a week off with a lung ailment, led Tell City with 18 points, her lowest total of the season.

    No other Marksman scored more than four points.

  • Perry Central stops Tell City

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central played strong man-to-man defense to beat Tell City 36-19 in eighth grade boys basketball Thursday.

    The Commodores also made some steals and turned some of them into layups as they jumped to a 10-0 lead.

    Tell City scored its first points on a three-point basket just before the first-quarter buzzer.

    Perry Central also held the Archers scoreless the first 5:15 of the third quarter.

    Abe Schwartz led Perry Central with 13 points and two assists.

  • Tell City can’t stop...

    TELL CITY—Jordan Myers’ strong low-post scoring led Forest Park past Tell City 77-73 in PAC boys basketball Saturday.

    Myers, a 6-foot-8 senior center who has signed to play for Southern Illinois University, hit 14 of 17 shots from two-point range, all from within 8 feet of the basket.

    He also made 1 of 4 from three-point range as he finished with 32 points.

    But in crunch time in the fourth quarter he operated exclusively down low, and the smaller Marksmen could not stop him.

  • Rebels hit 3-pointers; Bulldogs...

    CANNELTON—Huge advantages in three-point shooting and rebounding carried South Spencer past Cannelton 65-32 in boys basketball Tuesday.

    The Rebels hit 11 of 19 shots from three-point range while Cannelton went 0 for 24 from beyond the arc.

    The Rebels outrebounded the Bulldogs 46-24. “They’re aggressive, strong kids and they attack the glass,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett.

    “But they had four offensive rebounds off free throws. That’s just us not doing our job, and it’s collective as a team.”

  • Louisville tough test for ISU,...

    I rated the University of Louisville as the top college basketball team in the country in a preseason column. After facing the Cardinals, Aaron Carter may be inclined to agree.

    Carter, a Perry Central graduate, and his Indiana State teammates took on U of L at Freedom Hall Saturday and saw the Cardinals build leads of 15-2, 38-9 and 50-17 (at halftime) before winning 83-43.

    “It would have been nice to compete better,” said Carter.

  • Cold shooting Bulldogs lose to...

    ELIZABETH—Cannelton hit only 24.1 percent from the field in a 56-49 boys basketball loss to South Central Saturday.

    “We had a lot of shots that just didn’t fall,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett.

    He blamed the Bulldogs’ cold perimeter shooting (they were 8 for 33 from three-point range) on being “tired. We have tough early schedule—we knew that coming in.”

    The Bulldogs were playing their fourth game in eight days.

  • PC runs past Senators

    CAMPBELLSBURG—Perry Central started fast breaks with several of its 20 steals and beat West Washington 42-26 in PLAC girls basketball Monday.

    The Commodores struggled with their perimeter shooting, hitting only 19 of 57 from the field overall.

    “I thought our kids came out a little flat,” said Perry Central Coach Bill Dickerson. “I don’t think our intensity level was where it should’ve been.

    “Then our two juniors, Hilarie (Hahus) and Rachael (Rayford) really sparked us.

  • Raiders hold off TC wrestlers

    HUNTINGBURG—Tied after 12 matches, Southridge won the final two to beat Tell City 39-30 in wrestling Tuesday.

    Tell City Coach Joe Litherland noted that one of his wrestlers who lost down the stretch “was sick all day yesterday.”

    And “Southridge has a real good team. I said before they’re the favorite in the PAC.”

    Tell City won five of the 12 matches actually wrestled (the teams split two forfeits).

    Andy Kast, Kyle Shrubb and Dylan Froehlich earned pins for the Marksmen.

  • Points off rebounds, turnovers...

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central had a cold perimeter shooting night but used points off turnovers and offensive rebounds to beat Cannelton 68-48 in boys basketball Friday.

    A 65-year-old doctor made 39 of 50 three-point shots at halftime. But the Commo-dores, who were in the lockerroom at the time and thus unable to get inspired by him, hit only 2 of 19 from behind the arc.

    They outrebounded Can-nelton 41-27, though, and grabbed 15 offensive rebounds, which “probably led to at least 15 points or so,” said Perry Central Coach Matt Carter.

  • Piper top 50 all-state

    INDIANAPOLIS—Perry Central  lineman Robbie Piper was named to the Indiana Football Coaches Association’s top 50 all-state team Friday.

    That means the coaches’ panel selecting the team considered Piper one of the top 50 players in the state regardless of what enrollment class they participated in.

    He is only the third Perry Central player to ever make the coaches’ top 50 list. Linebacker Matt Aders made it in 2001 and running back Dwight Brown did so in 2005.
