  • Schroeder on girls All-PLAC team

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central center Alie Schroeder was a repeat selection to the All-PLAC girls basketball team in voting by conference coaches Thursday.

    Schroeder, a 6-foot center, led the conference in rebounding with 61 in six conference games, an average of 10.2 per game.

    "She had 15 more rebounds than anyone else in the conference, so that's probably her biggest asset," said Perry Central Coach Sarah Spindler. "And offensively I think she's improved a lot throughout her career."

  • Huber, Linette make All-PLAC...

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central seniors Nick Huber and Wes Linette were named to the All-PLAC boys basketball team in voting by conference coaches Thursday.

    Huber, a 6-foot-2 guard, made the 12-man squad for the second year in a row.

    He led the conference in scoring with 23.2 points per game in conference games.

    He was third in the conference in rebounding with 46 in six conference games and third in free-throw shooting at 84.6 percent.

    He was second in two-point field goals made with 33 and second in three-pointers with 14.

  • Four unanimous choices on girls...

    Four players were unanimous choices for this year's All-Perry County girls basketball team.

    As usual the voters were the head coaches of the three Perry County teams; Tecumseh Coach Randy Graham, the only one to coach against all three county teams; and I, who saw each county team play at least seven times.

    I asked each voter to pick the five players they would want to put on the floor to try to win a game.

    All five picked Tell City forward-guard Lauren Goffinet, Tell City guard Kara McClintic, Perry Central center Alie Schroeder, and Tell City center Dana Sibrel.

  • Zuelly selected for All-PAC team

    TELL CITY - Tell City guard Ryan Zuelly was named to the All-PAC boys basketball team Monday in voting by conference coaches.

  • Schroeder picks Vincennes

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central senior Alie Schroeder signed a letter of intent Thursday to continue her volleyball career at Vincennes University.

    Vincennes Coach Tina Miller said Schroeder will probably play middle hitter, the position she played most of the time in high school, for the Trail Blazers. "Or perhaps right side. But we're recruiting her as a middle hitter."

    Asked how much she expects Schroeder to play next year, the coach said, "I think she'll play a lot. That's the advantage of a junior college. We have no returning middle (hitter)s next year."

  • Bueltel's 3-pointers spark...

    HUNTINGBURG - Brett Bueltel hit four three-point shots in the second half as Mater Dei overtook Tell City to win the Huntingburg Class 2A basketball sectional 54-41 Saturday.

    Tell City's defensive strategy was "to make them beat us from outside because their big guys (6-foot-9 center Jake Hassler and 6-6 forward Matt Dickerson) were so good inside," said Tell City Coach John Hayes.

    That strategy meant playing a 2-3 zone and double-teaming Hassler whenever he got the ball inside.

  • Free-throw shooting makes...

    OAKLAND CITY - Tecumseh used 85.7 percent free-throw shooting and strong defense to beat Cannelton 78-45 in Class A boys basketball sectional semifinals Friday.

    Foul trouble hurt Cannelton early, as the Bulldogs' leading scorer, Tyler Aud, picked up his third foul with 3:32 left in the first quarter.

    "We probably gave up 40 points in missed free-throws and shots from the paint in the first half," remarked Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett.

    Tecumseh committed 23 fouls, three more than Cannelton, in the very physical game.

  • Marksmen's 2-3 zone stops...

    HUNTINGBURG - After falling behind early, Tell City switched to a 2-3 zone defense and beat South Spencer 56-46 in Class 2A boys basketball sectional semifinals Friday.

    The Marksmen were scheduled to play Mater Dei, a team they beat 57-49 at Tell City Jan. 15, in the championship game Saturday.

    Friday South Spencer built a 10-5 lead against the Marksmen's man-to-man defense in the first five minutes.

  • Is Benson anonymous donor for IU...

    For years guessing the identity of the Washington Post's Watergate informant, "Deep Throat," was a national game.

    Now Indiana University basketball fans should be guessing who is the anonymous donor producing $550,000 of the $750,000 IU is paying Kelvin Sampson to buy out the rest of his coaching contract.

    It seems likely that this person will have considerable say in who Sampson's permanent replacement will be. As "Deep Throat" told the Post reporters, "Follow the money trail."
