  • TC also crushes Eagles

    TELL CITY - Even if one had not seen any of Evansville Day's lopsided scores, watching the winless Eagles struggle to hit half their layups in warm-ups would have indicated they were in for a long night against Tell City in boys basketball Tuesday.

    It could have been worse. The Marksmen did not press at all but Day School still committed 23 turnovers.

  • Tell City edges Jeeps in OT

    TELL CITY - Facing the No. 3 team in any class in the state without one's only all-conference player from the previous year is not considered a recipe for success.

    The Marksmen stayed close most of the game with good shooting. They hit 45.1 percent from the field, including 7 of 15 from three-point range.
