CULVER â€” With its conference schedule now complete, Plymouthâ€™s boys basketball team is already gearing up for the start of the state tournament.
The Pilgrims jumped out to a fast start on the road at potential Sectional 19 foe Culver Military Academy Tuesday, holding the Eagles to just two buckets in the first half for a 25-point cushion at the break, and the visitors never let off the gas in a 59-24 rout at Fleet Gymnasium.
BOURBON â€” The Triton Trojans picked up another win as they held off the Rochester Zebras 60-45 at the Trojan Trench Tuesday night.
The Trojans started the game off slow and let Rochester stay in the game. They didnâ€™t get much going on the offensive end early, taking only a four-point lead at the end of the first quarter 12-8.
PLYMOUTH â€” When Plymouth senior Sam Stevens was little, grandmother Mary Beth Hunter used to take him out to the tennis court for lessons.
â€śWeâ€™re wasting our time,â€ť the young Stevens would say to the Hall of Fame Plymouth tennis coach. â€śIâ€™m going to play football.â€ť
Not only did Stevens turn out to be right, he turned out to be a pretty good football player, and on Monday he signed on to continue his football career at Division II Bemidji State in Minnesota.
Nicholas Amor dropped 35 points, and LaVille outlasted visiting Mishawaka Marian in two overtimes Tuesday, 79-77 at home at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
Andrew Hostetler put up 26 on the strength of six 3-pointers, and he dished out six assists with seven rebounds for the Lancers in the win, which pushes the team to 12-6 on the year.
Marian was led by Notre Dame commit Demetrius Jacksonâ€™s 29 points with nine rebounds and six assists and Devni Cannadyâ€™s 25.
