PLYMOUTH â€” Two weeks ago Culver Community made program history with its first-ever regional girls basketball championship.
On Saturday, neighboring Culver Military Academies bucked its own historical trend, capturing its first sectional championship since joining the IHSAA state series 36 years ago, with a 66-57 victory over South Bend St. Josephâ€™s in the Class 3A Sectional 19 final at Plymouth.
BOURBON â€” Westvilleâ€™s Kevin Stone-Tharp pulled down Clay Yeo from behind in the third quarter, depriving the Triton star of one of his patented breakaway dunks.
That was about the only thing denied Yeo and the No. 2 Trojans Saturday.
The 6-foot-5 sophomore forward scored 20 of his game-high 28 points in the first half, hauled in seven rebounds and swarmed the floor defensively to lead Triton to its fourth straight Class A Boys Basketball Sectional 50 crown, 65-37 over the Blackhawks at The Trojan Trench Saturday.
TOPEKA â€” Bremen played its best quarter of the season in Saturdayâ€™s Class 2A sectional final against host Westview. Unfortunately for the Lions, it couldnâ€™t make up for the first half.
Down 18 points at halftime, Bremen cut Westviewâ€™s lead to four in the third quarter. The Lions got no closer, as Justin Jantziâ€™s 30 points propelled the No. 7 Warriors to a 56-46 victory.
To Bremen coach Kyle Hanyzewski, the competitive loss coupled with Fridayâ€™s win over Fairfield showed what the Lions could do with the proper mindset.
