After a slow start, Wabash found the offensive and defensive footing and defeated Kenyon 85-57 in an NCAC game.
Down 24-22 with 7:52 left in the first half, the Little Giants offense posted a 23-9 finish to that half.
The defense kept their end up, holding the Lords without a field goal for more than 11 minutes from late in the first half to early in the second.
It was 63-40 at that point, and Wabash cruised to their fifth-straight win over Kenyon, moving to 9-6 overall
LINDEN — If a 12-2 burst to start to the game wasn’t enough, Danville went on a 31-0 run in a 72-24 Sagamore Conference win over North Montgomery on Friday night in girls’ basketball.
Hadley Broadwater went 1-of-2 from the free throw line for the Chargers to make it 25-8 in favor of Danville at the 3:31 mark in the second quarter, and North Montgomery failed to score again until Madi Welch made a free throw with 2:04 left in the third quarter — as the Warriors had multiplie
LINDEN — Sagamore Conference rival Danville, the fourth ranked team in 3A, outscored North Montgomery 22-2 in the second quarter propelling the Warriors to a 69-41 victory on the Chargers’ home floor. North Montgomery never threatened any sort of a comeback as they were soundly defeated in all phases of the game.
Charger Coach Chad Arnold was disappointed in his team’s performance, especially after a good week of practice.
“We practiced well all week and I really thought
NEW MARKET — Southmont’s girls’ basketball team overcame a slow start to defeat Attica 63-26 and pick up their 10th win of the season.
With a narrow 17-15 lead, the Mounties (10-7) outscored the Red Ramlbers (3-14) 8-0 over the last 2:35 of the first half to take a 25-15 lead at the break, and never looked back.
“We just didn’t have enough energy, and we weren’t moving our feet defensively,” Southmont coach Dustin Oakley said. “We just allowed them to be the aggressor. I
MECCA — Crawfordsville’s girls basketball team picked up a big road win at Riverton Parke Thursday and a big dose of confidence with a 52-31 victory over the Panthers.
The win moves the Athenians to 4-14, while Riverton Parke falls to 2-15.
“It equals last year’s win total,” C’ville coach Tyler Smith said. “We came into a hostile environment and faced down the adversity.”
The visitors were also forced to play without leading scorer Lauren Kellerman for nearly eight minu
While Crawfordsville’s boys’ basketball team has a rare Friday night off, and Fountain Central and Southmont will play pair of girl/boy non-conference doubleheaders, the North Montgomery basketball teams will welcome Sagamore Conference foe and power Danville to Charger Gym on Friday night.
In the girls’ game, the Chargers will look to knock off the three-time defending league champs for the first time since 2013.
The Warriors enter the SAC match-up with a 13-5 overall re
GREENCASTLE — North Montgomery’s girls’ basketball team ran into a hot-shooting Greencastle squad Tuesday night, falling to the Tiger Cubs 62-41.
Greencastle hit 15-of-25 shots from the floor and 10-of-10 from the line in the first half during the victory over the Chargers on Tuesday night at McAnally Center. The ‘Cubs have now won all four of their games since the calendar rolled over to 2020 and are 6-12 overall. North Montgomery is now 9-9 on the season.
Improvements continue, but some of the little things became the problem for the Crawfordsville girls basketball team in a 40-31 Sagamore Conference loss to Western Boone Tuesday.
The loss drops the Athenians to 3-14 overall and 0-5 in the conference, while the Stars move to 7-10 on the season and 2-2 in the league.
“On the positive side, we stayed with the team that won the (Sugar Creek) Classic, a team that is getting healthier and better,” Athenians coach Tyler Smith sa
In the past month Jared McMurry and the Journal Review staff came up with the “Best of the Decade” for Male Athlete, Female Athlete, Teams and Moments for the that decade that just ended.
Staying with that trend, this column is how about a look back at the athletes who scored 1,000 in boys’ basketball in the past decade.
While Montgomery County has a basketball tradition that dates back to the 1900s, this past decade has produced a number of players who reached that exclu
Southmont’s girls’ basketball program knew the absence of sophomore Sidney Veatch was leaving a void in the Mountie’s 6-16 disappointing season a season ago.
They just had no clue how big of a difference the now junior double-double machine was capable of making.
And neither did she.
The Mounties are 9-7 on the season, riding a three-game winning streak, and Veatch is at the center of it all.
“I honestly kind of surprised myself,” she said. “I wasn’t expecting coming
