Culver Community freshman Mickella Hardy scored a game-high 23 points as the Lady Cavaliers beat North White on the road Saturday.
LAKEVILLE â€” LaVille head coach Michael Edison didnâ€™t feel he said anything particularly inspiring at his teamâ€™s first time out.
The Lancers sure came out of the break like a team on fire, though.
Edison burned his teamâ€™s first time out at the 6:04 mark of the second quarter after a 4-0 quarter-opening mini run by visiting Westville cut LaVilleâ€™s lead to a single point, 15-14. When play resumed, the Lancers ran out the half on a 22-7 tear to take control of the game for good in an eventual 72-56 season-opening win over the visiting Blackhawks at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium Friday night.
Oregon-Davis fans cheer on the Bobcats in their boys basketball season opener at Triton Wednesday.
BOURBON â€” A few questions surrounded Triton star Clay Yeo and his surgically repaired right knee entering the Trojansâ€™ season opener against Oregon-Davis Wednesday.
He and his knee answered them in a major way.
The 6-foot-6 junior guard scored a game-high 29 points, tore down 18 rebounds and shut down Oregon-Davisâ€™ leading returning scorer Craig McIntosh to lead the Trojans to an 89-33 boys basketball win at The Trojan Trench.
CRAWFORDSVILLE â€” North Judson product C.J. Gum was named North Coast Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year a second straight year for the conference champion Little Giants, while Plymouth grad Austin Hodges was named to the All-NCAC defensive first team, and younger brother and fellow defensive back Houston Hodges was given All-NCAC Honorable Mention.
Gum, a fifth-year senior and inside linebacker, leads the Giants with 77 tackles this season, including 12 tackles for a loss and one and a half sacks.
Northern State Conference champion Bremen led the All-NSC squad with eight selections to the first team, while John Glenn was awarded six selections behind Jimtownâ€™s seven, and Culver was given three picks.
Lions offensive backs Nate Leeper and Braxton Miller, offensive lineman Abraham Hall, wide receiver Ben Hueni, tight end Mitch Huppert and kicker Reed Zelmer were all named to the All-NSC first team on offense, while lineman Dillon Mullen, linebacker Andrew Borkholder and defensive back Bobby Cornett were chosen on the defensive team.

BREMEN â€” Trouble converting from the free throw line has translated into a troubled start for Bremen early this season. The Lady Lions turned things around both at the stripe and in the win-loss column Tuesday.
Bremen hit 20 of 25 from the foul line, and the Lions claimed their first win of the season with a convincing 51-40 win over visiting Plymouth.
ARGOS â€”Â Argos girls basketball head coach Nick Medich searched for an explanation, oddly enough, for how his team beat Culver Community Tuesday.
He quickly eliminated the 36 percent field-goal percentage, 23 turnovers, and generally sloppy play before settling on free throws.
The Dragons drained 15-of-20 tries from the charity stripe â€”Â compared to 4 of 7 for the Cavs â€”Â and held off Culver in a 37-30 win at Phil Weybright Gymnasium.
