LAKEVILLE â€”Â With the gameâ€™s first basket Friday in the Bi-County Boys Basketball Tournament semifinal round, Tritonâ€™s Griffyn Carpenter broke his schoolâ€™s career scoring record.
And he never really stopped scoring the entire night.
The 6-foot-1 senior powered his way to a game-high 29 points and led the Class A No. 3 Trojans to a 59-44 win over host LaVille at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
Triton looks for its second straight title tonight, against Culver Community. Game time is scheduled for 8:30 p.m.

LAKEVILLE â€” Culver Communityâ€™s Patrice McBee dug deep into her bag of offensive tricks Thursday night in the Bi-County Girls Basketball Tournament semifinals.
With conventional low-post work, a short jumper, a dribble drive, a roll to the bucket, and a left-handed drive and right-handed finish on the baseline, the 6-foot-3 senior showcased her offensive versatility with a game-high 21 points to lead the Cavs to a 59-34 win over Argos.
LAKEVILLE â€” A lot can change in nine weeks.
When Oregon-Davis first took the floor at Triton in early November, the Lady Bobcats were essentially an eighth-grade team with virtually no returners from last yearâ€™s Sectional 50 championship campaign, and the Trojans handed them their first loss in two years.
The names and the faces were the same, but there were few other resemblances between the Class A, No. 4 Bobcats that hit the hardwood in that game and the one that played Triton Thursday.

LAKEVILLE â€” Fourpeat defending girls champion Oregon-Davis scuffled its way to a double-digit victory, while OD shooter Zach Richie was sidelined with the flu as the LaVille Lancers beat their guests by a lopsided 80-42 margin, and the Lady Bobcats survived 67-56 in first-round TCU Bi-County Basketball Tournament action Tuesday at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.

NEW CARLISLE â€” Griffyn Carpenter put on same late heroics, while Tritonâ€™s girls did just enough to hold off the Lady Cougars in hostile territory.
As the 46th annual Boys Bi-County Basketball Tournament gets underway tonight, many area teams are looking for a shot to check off one of the big three on their 2010-11 to-do list.
Over its long history, the eight-team tilt has taken on special importance for its participants and for many, this week has been circled on their calendars since summer, along with conference games and the IHSAA tournament.
