NEW MARKET — Southmont has had a bit of an up and down season, but enter the state tournament in probably the best spot of any of the area girls basketball teams. The Mounties closed the regular season at 6-15 and will face off against Crawfordsville (3-19) in the opening game tonight at 6 p.m., a team they beat 51-43 last week. And with a repeat victory, they will face Lebanon in the first semi-final on Friday, a team they lost a close one to 36-31 last Friday. Most importan
LINDEN — More often than not your state tournament fate is determined by the draw. And the draw for North Montgomery in the Class 3A girls basketball Sectional at Southmont was not kind for the Chargers. North Montgomery received a bye, and will face the winner of Greencastle and Benton Central on Friday night in the second semi-final game at 7:30 p.m. The No. 7 ranked Bison come into the sectional as the prohibitive favorite with a 20-4 record. Greencastle is the second favo
Basketball is a game of runs, and for a second straight night, North Montgomery used a streaking offense and strong defensive effort to beat Attica 59-42 on Saturday night in boys basketball to complete a two-win weekend.
The Chargers jumped out to a 16-5 lead after one quarter, only to watch the Red Ramblers climb back into the game with an 18-point quarter to cut the lead to 24-23 at the half.
But, North Montgomery (4-13) responded out of the half, playing some of its b
FRANKFORT — You could hear the noise from outside the building.
Crawfordsville’s girls capped their regular season with a 59-56 win over Frankfort, and the celebration inside the Athenians locker room was monumental.
Trailing 44-36 early in the fourth quarter, Crawfordsville went on an 18-0 to take the lead. They were 16-of-20 from the free-throw in the fourth quarter alone, as they win their first Sagamore Conference game in the high school history of nearly every player
DOVER — Madison Jones got into a groove early Friday night in her last home game as a Lady Star.
And once she got going, there was little North Montgomery could do to stop her. Jones scored 20 points in the first quarter, and finished with a Boone County girls single-game record 59 points, as Western Boone topped North Montgomery 87-30.
She also scored her 2,000th point in the game.
“Madison had a goal in sight and as a team, we really wanted her to get that tonight,” W
DOVER — The North Montgomery basketball team tried not to think about it, but it was there in the back of their minds.
Heading into Friday night’s match-up at Western Boone, the Chargers had lost 19 straight Sagamore Conference games, last beating Frankfort in February 2016.
But that streak is no more.
North Montgomery out-scored Western Boone 11-3 in the final three minutes, and topped the Stars 53-45. “It was awesome,” North Montgomery head coach Andrew Evertts said.
LEBANON — Southmont’s boys’ basketball team made history Friday night as it beat Lebanon 41-40 for the Mounties first win ever at Lebanon - ending a 20-game losing streak.
“When I found out we had never won over here, I told the guys we could be the Neil Armstrong of Southmont basketball,” Southmont head coach Jake Turner said. “I just feel so good for the kids. It’s not been an easy year and this is the type of win that could propel us down the stretch.”
For the first time all season, all 16 Sagamore Conference girls and boys basketball teams will be in action against each other today.
The girls’ teams will close out their regular seasons, while the boys are all fighting for positioning in the league standings.
Locally, North Montgomery will travel to Western Boone, while Southmont will play at Lebanon and Crawfordsville heads to Frankfort. Danville will play at Tri-West with the Bruins and Warriors playing for the girls’
