KNOX â€” With leading scorer Griffyn Carpenter out and three starters in foul trouble early, Triton got some excellent preparation for the state tournament next week.
The Class A, No. 3 Trojans â€” already minus their leading scorer after he was injured in a game at Argos Tuesday â€” overcame a rocky first quarter in which Clay Yeo, Quentyn Carpenter and Austin Davis were each charged with three fouls and the visitors fell behind 16-13 at the quarter break, ultimately escaping Knox with a 52-46 victory in the regular-season finale for both teams Friday at Weinberg Gymnasium.
LAKEVILLE â€”Â LaVille boys basketball head coach Michael Edisonâ€™s face lit up at the mention of Codee Kimbelâ€™s Senior Night crunch-time play Friday.
After all, the 6-foot-3 senior forward scored six of the Lancersâ€™ game-ending eight unanswered points, highlighted by a pair of go-ahead free throws following an offensive rebound off a missed LaVille charity shot with 1:39 to play, and the Lancers collected a 45-39 Northern State Conference win over Jimtown at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
BREMEN â€”Â With Indianaâ€™s version of March Madness mere days away, Culver capped the regular season on a high note Friday night.
After a tremendous start, Culver never looked back and topped Bremen, 54-39.
â€śWe got them earlier in the year at the Bi-County Tournament but we knew this was going to be a dogfight, and we had some kids step up for us,â€ť Culver coach Kyle Elliott said. â€śIâ€™m very proud of the kidsâ€™ effort.â€ť
As it has much of the season, Bremen dug itself an early hole, and couldnâ€™t cut its deficit to less than 12 points over the final two quarters.
