SYRACUSE â€” Sometimes you expect something and the opposite happens. Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims took on a team noted for chaotic full-court play, and wound up playing a Wawasee team taking the air out of the ball.
Plymouth out-waited the Warriors by a 57-30 final in a Northern Lakes Conference boys basketball game Friday.
LAKEVILLE â€” With Triton trailing by two and time for one last shot, everyone in the gym knew who the ball was going to.
And given Clay Yeoâ€™s track record of hitting game-winning shots, LaVille head coach Michael Edison decided to make a gamble â€” triple down on the senior Valpo recruit and make the Trojans win with someone else.
LAKEVILLE â€” Kyle Elliott knew Glenn was going to present his team with some match-up problems. The Culver Community coach also had an inkling of what to expect after what he described as his teamâ€™s worst practice of the season Thursday.
Sure enough, the Cavs scuffled to a slow start as the Falcons staked themselves to a 15-5 lead at the first quarter break and never once trailed in a convincing 52-39 Bi-County semifinal win Friday night.
Longtime John Glenn boys basketball coach and current Triton assistant coach Gordon Mosson was honored in between Bi-County Tournament semifinal games Friday night at LaVille as the winningest coach in the tourneyâ€™s 47-year history.
Mosson guided the Falcons to 10 titles and 15 championship game berths in his 25-year tenure as the head coach at Glenn, amassing an impressive 43-15 mark at the tournament.
