KNOX â€” Even after suffering a loss to Culver early in their Northern State Conference schedule, the Trojans knew they werenâ€™t out of the hunt for an NSC title. They simply put the loss behind them and kept fighting.
Triton avoided a letdown on the road against a struggling Knox squad Friday, jumping out to a fast start and cruising to the NSC co-championship with a 76-37 win at Harold Weinberg Gymnasium.
The Trojans thus finish up league play at 6-1, tied with New Prairie for the NSC crown.
BREMEN â€” The Bremen Lions sent out their seniors on a high note as they held the Culver Cavaliers in check beating them by a score of 62-44.
Bremen started the game out strong, going on a 10-2 run, led by senior Don Browningâ€™s two 3-pointers. They were able to keep that going and closed out the quarter with a 14-6 lead.
The lead stayed at eight for most of the second quarter and then at the 3:37 mark, senior Ethan Pike went on an 8-2 run on his own for the Lions, helping push them to a 36-18 half time lead. Pike outscored the Cavaliers 19-18 in the half and finished with 30 in the game.
LAKEVILLE â€” Senior Night didnâ€™t proceed quite the way LaVille boys basketball head coach Michael Edison drew it up.
It turned out even better.
The Lancers held visiting Jimtown scoreless until the 6:09 mark of the second quarter and locked the Jimmies out of double figures until the opening ticks of the fourth quarter en route to a 56-22 Northern State Conference cakewalk at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium Friday.
