LAKEVILLE â€” LaVilleâ€™s boys basketball team matched NorthWood punch for punch for 29 minutes.
The other three minutes, though, knocked the Lancers back just enough to make the difference.
The Panthers, who led 36-33 at the intermission, scored eight unanswered points in the first three minutes of the second half to open a double-digit lead and turn back LaVille 78-64 at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium Tuesday.
BOURBON â€” Two of Class A No. 3 Tritonâ€™s trademarks are a sticky-fingered defense and long range accuracy, and the Trojans put both on display Tuesday.
Triton created seven first quarter turnovers by the visiting Eagles, converting them into 11 points and senior shooter Griffyn Carpenter went 4 for 5 from beyond the arc as the Trojans ran off to a 22-4 lead at the quarter break and never looked back in a dominant 69-39 win over visiting Elkhart Christian at The Trojan Trench Tuesday.
