  • Raiders, Rebels top Tell City

    HUNTINGBURG—Tell City’s girls basketball team shot decently Thursday but played poorly in other facets of the game. Friday the Marksmen did pretty well in everything but shooting.
    The result was two road losses, 39-32 to Southridge Thursday and 58-30 to South Central Friday.
    At Southridge “we shot the ball decent, but in the first half we took only 10 shots because of turnovers,” said Tell City Coach John Hayes. “We did not take care of the basketball.”

    The Commodores grabbed 19 offensive rebounds and got three or four shots on several possessions.

  • Bulldogs fall to Rebels,...

    WHITESVILLE, Ky.—Whitesville Trinity went on a 16-4 fourth-quarter run to pull away to a 56-36 girls basketball victory over Cannelton Monday.
    “We played pretty well up into the fourth quarter,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett. “It was 34-42.
    “Then they went on a pretty good run in the fourth quarter and we couldn’t catch up. They just beat us down the floor. They were sending someone long every time a (Cannelton) shot went up and getting layups on fast breaks.”

  • Eagles press past Perry Central...

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central forced two overtimes, but 33 turnovers eventually caught up with the Commodores in a 56-52 girls basketball loss to Lanesville Monday.
    Hitting only 8 of 23 free throws also hurt Perry Central.
    The Eagles used a 2-2-1 full-court press. “We’d break it, get it across halfcourt, and then turn it over,” said Perry Central Coach Ty Guillaume.
    He added, “They used a man-to-man press at times and it caused us some problems.”

    DUBOIS—Looking at the final score one might assume either Tell City or Northeast Dubois played a slowdown game in their boys basketball matchup Saturday.
    But actually both teams were just cold from the field, though the Jeeps hit some free throws down the stretch to beat Tell City 34-29.
    The Marksmen hit only 27.5 percent from the field, including 2 of 16 from three-point range.
    They were also cold at the free-throw line, hitting just 5 of 12 for 41.7 percent.
