  • Tell City takes control early...

    TELL CITY - Tell City jumped to an 18-point lead in the first 9 1/2 minutes and beat South Spencer 68-54 in PAC boys basketball Saturday.

    South Spencer edged Tell City in field-goal shooting 51.3 percent to 50.0 percent and in rebounds 27-26 for the game.

    But Tell City shot free throws better (68.1 percent to 50.0 percent) and committed seven fewer turnovers.

    Those factors helped the Marksmen hold the lead after their hot start.

  • Boonville beats Tell City

    BOONVILLE - Junior forward Meagan Collins scored 15 points as Boonville beat Tell City 40-36 in girls basketball Thursday.

    "She's an athlete," said Tell City Coach John Lyons. "And they're a lot better than their record (4-10) says.

    "We didn't shoot the ball particularly well and our defense wasn't as good as it usually is."

    Kara McClintic led Tell City with 15 points, including four three-point baskets.

    Lauren Goffinet and Dana Sibrel each added nine points.

  • Turnovers cost Commodores

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central committed 35 turnovers in a 55-43 girls basketball loss to Heritage Hills Thursday.

    "Defensively it was probably our best effort of the year," said Perry Central Coach Sarah Spindler. "But with that many turnovers, it's going to be hard to beat anybody.

    "Most of them were unforced - passes from bad angles, dribbling off our foot."

    When the Commodores didn't turn the ball over, they shot decently, hitting 42.2 percent from the field.

  • Nuetzel starred for Tell City in...

    If you were on a committee to elect members of a school's athletic hall of fame, you might be reluctant to vote for a basketball player who averaged 7.9 points per game.

    You would probably be much more willing to vote for someone who was the leading scorer on a sectional championship team and went on to be a starter for a Big Ten Conference championship team as a sophomore in college.

    But what if I told you those two examples are actually the same player?

  • Lockman, Cannelton overpower...

    CANNELTON - Cannelton girls basketball guard Devin Lockman put on quite a show for her mother Thursday.

    Lockman, surprised earlier in the day by her mother's return from a tour of duty in the war in Iraq, celebrated with 18 points, seven assists and seven steals - all career highs - as the Bulldogs beat Cloverport 58-21.

    Lockman scored six points in the first two minutes as the Bulldogs jumped to an 8-0 lead.

    She hit a driving 7-foot shot after a Cloverport turnover, made a steal and a layup, and added two free throws after Cannelton forced the Aces' sixth turnover.

  • Huber propels PC past Raiders in...

    HUNTINGBURG - Nick Huber scored the first six points of the second overtime to lead Perry Central past Southridge 57-52 in boys basketball Friday.

    Neither team ever led by more than five points until the second overtime, and Perry Central had to score the last basket of regulation and the first overtime to get to the second overtime.

    Michael Jarboe scored inside on an assist from T.J. Lamon to tie the score 42-42 with 2:11 left in regulation.

    Southridge then held the ball for the last shot and missed.

  • TC beats Alices, falls to...
