CULVER â€” Slow and steady wins the race, or in this case, the basketball game.
The visiting LaCrosse Tigers were no match for Culver Communityâ€™s calm offense. Even against a LaCrosse full-court press and a defense that was trying to grab any free ball, Culver kept possession and control of the game the entire night, winning 58-41 at home Friday.
NAPPANEE â€” Tritonâ€™s ice-cold 3-point shooting finally caught up with it in overtime.
The Class A No. 2 Trojans connected on just 4 of 25 attempts from downtown â€”Â 0 for 6 in the extra session â€”Â and scuffled to a 28.8 percent clip from the field overall in a 50-43 overtime loss to NorthWoodâ€™s boys basketball team Friday at The Pit.
To exacerbate the frustration, the Trojans, who led most of the night, built a 35-27 advantage with 5:39 left in regulation and led until Michael Paulâ€™s 3-pointer knotted the game at 40-all with 29 seconds to go in the fourth quarter.
ROCHESTER â€” Right guy. Right look. Wrong result.
After Rochester forward Collin Harris missed his second free throw in the double bonus with 5.5 seconds on the clock, Plymouth had a chance to send the game into overtime as forward Sean Smith pulled down the rebound and hit veteran point guard Houston Hodges streaking up the floor, but a hard foul by Zebras sophomore Jonathon O'Dell spoiled the breakaway layup and sent Hodges to the line with the Pilgrims trailing by two instead.
PLYMOUTH â€” There were some good individual performances, and the young Rockies battled, but Plymouth's inexperience showed as it lost its Northern Lakes Conference opener to Goshen 46-18 Thursday.
Plymouth won just four bouts and gave up three pinfalls and three major decisions in the loss.
PLYMOUTH â€” Alexander wept when he saw there were no more worlds left to conquer.
Kenzie Miller just gave a sly smile.
The finish wasn't dramatic, but it signified something very special as the Plymouth senior and Texas Christian University signee clocked in a full 11 seconds faster than her closest competitor, breaking the Lady Pilgrims' school record for the 100-yard breast stroke with a time of 1:10.59.

Former John Glenn High School basketball players thank the coach that taught them not only skills on the court, but off as well:
You donâ€™t have to look far to see the mark Dan Hutton has left on Indiana high school basketball.
Just check your local high school gym. Chances are, heâ€™s done the artwork.
The longtime John Glenn girls basketball coach and painter has created murals and floor art for numerous gymnasiums around the state â€” including, among many others, Northern State Conference schools John Glenn, Triton, Culver, LaVille, Knox and New Prairie â€” and Tuesday, he was honored with the 2010 NSC Service Award for that artwork and his many other contributions to the conference during a ceremony at Glenn.
A nearly packed house saw a musical homecoming for the holidays as Denver Bierman and the Mile High Orchestra gave their high energy all in a Christmas show at Plymouth Wesleyan Church last night.
â€śAs always, it was really good to be home â€” and just great to be able to kick off our Christmas tour here at my home church,â€ť said Bierman. â€śI really canâ€™t thank everybody enough, all the people here in town that helped us make this possible. None of it could have happened without a lot of people helping us out.â€ť
