    Tell City beat Providence 39-37, Shawnee 84-0, and Paoli 57-24.

    The Marksmen lost to Southwestern 47-25 and to Milan, which went 5-0 to win the tourney.

  • Vikings slay Commodores

    POSEYVILLE - Perry Central could not get its inside offense going and lost to North Posey 55-34 in girls basketball Saturday.

    The Commodores hit 3 of 7 three-point shots but only 9 of 29 from two-point range.

    Their three starting frontline players combined for just 10 points on 4 for 13 field-goal shooting and 2 for 6 free throws.

    The Commodores also had trouble getting the ball to their frontliners, as they committed 22 turnovers.

    Sophomore guard Alyssa Like led North Posey with 19 points.

  • Braves run past Bulldogs

    CANNELTON - Turnovers and hitting only 30.3 percent from the field contributed to Cannelton's 70-28 boys basketball loss to Tecumseh Saturday.

    The Bulldogs committed 23 turnovers, 14 more than Tecumseh.

    "Tecumseh is a good team and play fundamentally sound," said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett. "And we played flat."

    Two Cannelton players were ineligible because they missed practices during the Christmas break.

    Tecumseh moved the ball with precision to hit 57.5 percent of its two-point shots.

  • Rangers outshoot Perry Central

    FERDINAND - Forest Park's superior size inside helped the Rangers beat Perry Central 79-66 in boys basketball Saturday.

    Jordan Myers, the Rangers' 6-foot-8 junior center, had 22 points and 11 rebounds and hit 9 of 12 shots from the field.

    He hit one 12-foot shot from the wing but his other eight field goals came from within 7 feet of the basket, including two on rebounds.

    And when the Commodores collapsed two people on him, he made some nice passes to teammates for backdoor layups.

  • Marksmen nip Titans; beat...

    OWENSVILLE - Kara McClintic's free throw with one second left gave Tell City a 45-44 PAC girls basketball win over Gibson Southern Saturday.

    The score was tied 44-44 with 0:08 left when McClintic missed a driving shot. Teammate Lacey Padgett grabbed the rebound and also missed a shot.

    Gibson Southern's Kelsie Linneweber grabbed that rebound. But McClintic stole it and was fouled with 0:01 left.

    McClintic missed the first free throw but hit the second to give the Marksmen the victory over the state's 14th ranked Class 3A team.

  • New Albany pins Tell City

    NEW ALBANY - New Albany won eight consecutive matches in the middle weights and beat Tell City 45-27 in wrestling Thursday.

    "Where we're normally pretty strong, they were stronger," said Tell City Coach Joe Litherland. "They've got five kids that are tougher than nails.

    "They had five kids who placed in the Mater Dei Classic, so we knew it was going to be a tough match."

    The Marksmen also wrestled without several regular starters.

    Keith Patrick, their 119-pound starter, is expected to be sidelined another week with a groin injury.
