LAKEVILLE â€” With leading scorer Ethan Pike sitting out the game with family issues, Bremenâ€™s offense struggled Friday night.
LaVille held the Lions to 11 of 33 from the field and their lowest points production of the season as the Lancers grabbed their first Northern State Conference win with a 45-27 defeat of the visiting Lions at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
ELKHART â€” The Plymouth boys basketball team has seen some good opposing guards this season already, but they may have seen one of the best Friday night.Â
Elkhart Memorialâ€™s Todd Johnson was nearly unstoppable at Elkhartâ€™s North Side Gym and the Pilgrims werenâ€™t able to overcome an early deficit in a losing effort against the Chargers, 57-52.
Johnson finished the night with 33 points, making 12 of his 17 shots from the floor even with one and sometimes two Pilgrim defenders guarding him.
WALKERTON â€”Â Tritonâ€™s girls basketball team churned out a couple of big numbers that mitigated a small one Friday night.
The Class A No. 5 Trojans ripped down 26 offensive rebounds, forced 24 turnovers, and overcame a 26-percent performance from the field â€”Â 16 of 61 â€”Â en route to a 40-27 Northern State Conference win over John Glenn at The Aerie.
For the game, Triton, which snapped a three-game skid, piled up 20 second-chance points and 17 points off turnovers, while holding the Falcons to a mere 21 tries from the field.
