LAKEVILLE â€” The draws have been announced for the 48th annual Bi-County Basketball Tournaments.
The tournament, sponsored by Teachers Credit Union and hosted by LaVille High School, will run from January 14-19. Admission prices are $5 for single session tickets and $15 for full tourney admission, good for all games at all levels.
CULVER â€” Culver Girls Academy leading scorer Andrijana Cvitkovic recorded just a single solitary basket in the opening nine minutes Wednesday.
The rest of the contest told an entirely different tale.
The 6-foot-3 senior post scored 22 of her game-high 24 points over the final three quarters, and also grabbed six rebounds, swatted four shots, and swiped three steals to lead the Eagles to a 54-43 girls basketball win over cross-town rival Culver Community at John R. Nelson Gymnasium.
HAMLET â€” Oregon-Davis added South Bend Riley to its schedule this year to give the Bobcats a challenge.
And thatâ€™s exactly what the Wildcats did.
Rileyâ€™s defensive pressure generated 35 OD turnovers, while the Wildcats showed balance on the offensive end with five players contributing meaningful points production. The visitors put the game away early, jumping out to a 30-point cushion in the first half en route to a 71-35 victory over host Oregon-Davis at The Den Wednesday night.
HAMLET â€” Before the Bobcats tipped off against Riley Wednesday, Oregon-Davis paid tribute to one of the programâ€™s fondest memories in a special pre-game ceremony at The Den.
The school hung the jerseys of Todd Blair and Scott Blum, and Blum â€” the programâ€™s career scoring record-holder â€”Â delivered a few words as OD commemorated the 25th anniversary of the Bobcatsâ€™ 1988 sectional championship season.

The Trojans move to 6-2 on the year and will host Northern State Conference foe Bremen Friday.
LAKEVILLE â€” Last Friday, Argos forward Ben Carterâ€™s 21 points helped power the Dragons to their first win of the season. Following that performance, LaVille made him a focal point in the teamâ€™s home opener Tuesday night.
The Lancers double teamed Carter in the paint to hold the 6-6 junior scoreless, and the home team claimed a 47-32 win over visiting Argos in LaVilleâ€™s home opener at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
BOURBON â€”Â The Triton Trojans won in dominate fashion as they defeated the North Miami Warriors 75-44 at the Trojan Trench Tuesday night.
The Trojans jumped on them early with a 16-2 run and never let off of the accelerator. Clay Yeo started the scoring with a breakaway dunk which got the crowd going. He dropped in 36 points along with eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks and three steals for a nice all-around game.
Yeo was helped out by a good effort from teammates Tanner Shepherd and Seth Glingle who had 11 and 12 respectively.
