BREMEN â€” Bremen leading scorer Ethan Pike played four quarters and two overtime periods without a single field goal Tuesday against Argos.
His work at the free-throw line, though, made all the difference.
Pike snapped a 41-all deadlock with a pair of free throws with 1:10 left in the second extra set and the Lionsâ€™ boys basketball team held on for a 44-41 double-overtime win over the Dragons.
CULVER â€”Â The Culver Cavaliers lost a heartbreaking match up against Winamac Tuesday night, taking their first loss of the season 47-40.

The Warriors went on to score 16 points in the first quarter, highlighted by 3-point buckets from Bryan McKinney and Kyle Krohn, who co-led Winamac as two of three players with 13 points for the night, along with Shidler.
