    They also beat Heritage Hills 51-39 earlier in the evening in the three-team, round-robin competition.
    Both wins were over fellow PAC teams, and the conference tourney is coming up Saturday.

    OAKLAND CITY—Pressure defense and strong rebounding helped Wood Memorial jump to a 30-2 lead and beat Cannelton 60-21 in Class A basketball sectional semifinals Friday.
    Wood Memorial center Conner Sevier, a college prospect listed at 6-foot-5, always hits a high percentage from the field against Cannelton - he was 8 for 9 in their regular-season game and 6 for 7 with a team-high 13 points in this game.
    Surprisingly, though, he did not grab a single rebound in their regular-season game.
