  • Cannelton’s defense...

    CANNELTON—Strong passing and an aggressive defense helped Cannelton defeat Portland Christian 85-51 in boys basketball Saturday.

    Cannelton’s tight man-to-man defense was able to shut down the Eagles’ shooting enough to allow Cannelton’s lead to open up to 20 points by halftime.

    “This was one of the rare times that we actually had a size advantage across the board,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett. “We finally matched up with somebody where we had the advantage and you could tell (it helped).”

    TELL CITY—Andy Chinn scored 20 points in the fourth quarter as Tell City rallied but fell short to Crawford County 69-67 in boys basketball Saturday.

    Chinn’s hot hand led a strong comeback that just ran short of time.

    He hit two three-point shots in a 20-second span to pull the Marksmen within two, 69-67, with three seconds left.

  • Mitchell hits 60 percent to maul...

    MITCHELL—Mitchell hit 60 percent from the field as o pound Perry Central 74-43 in PLAC boys basketball Saturday.

    “When they (Mitchell) shot the ball, everyone was supposed to go to the boards,” said Perry Central Coach Matt Carter.

    Instead, the Bluejackets grabbed missed Perry Central shots and threw baseball passes to Dwayne Eubanks at midcourt for consecutive layups to give Mitchell an early 4-0 lead.

    Perry Central tied the score on two free throws by Reuben A. Schwartz and a basket by Alex Rogier. But after that it was all Mitchell.
