NORTH JUDSON â€” Class 2A No. 6 North Judson got off to a slow start and led by just three points at the half, but the Bluejays used a strong second half to remain unbeaten versus LaVille.
Judson opened the third quarter on a 10-0 run and put up 37 points after the break while holding the visiting Lancers to only 12 in a 67-39 win at Judson Friday.
LaVille head coach Michael Edison said North Judsonâ€™s Kendall Hochstedler made the difference in the game the second half.
MISHAWAKA â€” Two wins in two nights proved too much for Plymouth at Penn Thursday.
Coming off a lopsided home win over Whitko Wednesday, the Class 3A No. 8 Pilgrims suffered their first defeat of the season as the Kingsmen outlasted them in overtime, 52-42.
â€śNo excuses. We knew they had gotten to rest the night before, but we were coming over here to compete. Thatâ€™s all there was to it. It wasnâ€™t an option to not show up and not compete,â€ť said Plymouth head coach Ryan Bales.
CULVER â€” The Lady Cavaliers overcame a slow start to defeat the North Judson Lady Jays at home Thursday night, 63-45.
Culver (6-6) scored just six points in the first quarter, while the visiting Lady Jays (7-4) put up 15, but the second quarter heated up quickly.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Pilgrims defended their brand-new Class 3A No. 8 ranking in convincing fashion against Whitko Wednesday.

The Pilgrims finished with 18 assists compared to just two by Whitko, and four players scored in double figures to help Plymouth stay unbeaten while handing the Wildcats their third straight loss.
Glenn wins third straight
Three Falcons scored in double digits, and John Glenn won its third straight with a 72-42 defeat of host Argos Wednesday.

Argos was led by Cain Thornâ€™s 17 in the loss, which drops the team to 1-5.
