An 18-7 second quarter run by visiting Indianapolis Homeschool left Culver Military trailing by 10 at the half, and the Eagles never quite recovered in a 45-39 season-opening loss at home at Fleet Gymnasium Monday night.
Homeschool â€” which already had six games under its belt heading into Culver Military â€” knocked down six triples in the win, while CMA scuffled to a 4-for-10 finish from the foul line in the six-point loss.

Plymouth sophomore Hunter Stevens led the Lady Pilgrims in scoring with 24 points in two games as the team beat Triton and Valparaiso last week for a 3-0 start.
Argos sophomore Damon Binkley was voted the All-Northern Indiana Soccer Conference Player of the Year last week after leading the Dragons to their first NISC championship since 1998.
PLYMOUTH â€” Kill the head, and the body will die. Cut off the point, and running an offense becomes pretty difficult.
Such was Plymouthâ€™s plan coming into Saturdayâ€™s home opener versus Valparaiso, and the Lady Pilgrims executed to a T.
Sophomore Allie Wright relentlessly shadowed Valpo point guard Grace Withrow, effectively marooning her from the rest of the Vikingsâ€™ offense, the Pilgrims created havoc in the passing lanes, and Plymouth rode a strong defensive effort to a 50-32 win at The Rock.
Cvitkovic powers CGA past LaVille in OT
Dayton recruit Andrijana Cvitkovic surpassed the 1,000-point mark, and Culver Girls Academy kept LaVille winless with a thrilling 57-55 overtime victory Saturday night at Fleet Gymnasium.
Cvitkovic tallied a game-high 25 points to power CGAâ€™s offense, which finished 49 percent from the field for the night.
McKenzie Leed and Katie Berger each scored 14, and Hannah Herbster put up 12 points for the balanced Lady Lancersâ€™ offense, which hung tough with the hosts despite an 18-of-65, 28 percent field conversion rate.
LAKEVILLE â€” There were plenty of things for LaVille fans to feel good about in the Lady Lancersâ€™ game with Rochester Friday night. Itâ€™s just that a win wasnâ€™t one of them.
LaVille weathered an early storm to get back in the game after a slow start, broke Rochesterâ€™s press with relative ease, played solid defense in a newly-implemented 2-3 zone, hung tough in the battle of the boards, worked the ball inside on offense.
Trojans shoot down Satellites
BOURBON â€”Â Class A No. 6 Triton finished 9 of 15 from 3-point territory while holding South Central to 26 percent from the field en route to a 69-36 girls basketball win at Union Mills Friday.
Triton senior Shana Anderson went 9 of 15 from the field â€”Â 4-for-5 from behind the 3-point arc â€” on her way to a team-high 24 points, seven boards, five assists, and five steals.
Taylor Hatfield chipped in 19 points, also drilled four of her five 3-point attempts for the Trojans, and Kylie Mason contributed 12 points.
BOURBON â€” The Plymouth Lady Pilgrims and the Class A No. 6 Triton Lady Trojans played a game of runs Thursday night at the Trojan Trench.
The visitors used one final one to outlast the hosts in overtime, 39-36.
Triton opened the game up with a fast-paced offense and tough zone defense to jump out to an 11-6 lead after one quarter.Â Shana Anderson started the scoring with a basket off a Mallorie Jennings assist.Â Jennings picked up two points of her own on the next possession, and a baseline drive and lay-up by Taylor Hatfield got the Lady Trojans rolling.
BOURBON â€” Even though Clay Yeo had already decided on a college his sophomore year, itâ€™s something thatâ€™s been looming in the back of his mind ever since. Now that itâ€™s official, the prodigious Triton talent can just focus on his senior season.
After two years of verbal commitment, Yeo finally signed his letter of intent to play at Valparaiso next year on the first day of the early signing period Wednesday.
