  • Marksmen stop Tecumseh to win...

    LINCOLN CITY - Tell City's boys basketball players must not have wanted another 7 a.m. practice, as they played strong defense to beat Tecumseh 51-40 for the PSC Classic championship Saturday.

  • Tell City nips Perry Central

    TELL CITY - This script may sound familiar:

    Tell City basketball forward Joseph Kohnert is so sick there is a question as to whether he will be able to play. Then he goes out and has a big game in the semifinals of the PSC Classic, including hitting the winning shot in the final minute.

    He did that to Tecumseh last year and did it again to Perry Central Thursday, hitting a go-ahead three-pointer with 0:35 left as the Marksmen won 68-65.

    After trailing 2-0, Perry Central led until the final 35 seconds, building its lead to 13 points twice in the second quarter.
