Trojans rout Westville for 4th straight sectional title

March 7, 2011

BOURBON — Westville’s Kevin Stone-Tharp pulled down Clay Yeo from behind in the third quarter, depriving the Triton star of one of his patented breakaway dunks.
That was about the only thing denied Yeo and the No. 2 Trojans Saturday.
The 6-foot-5 sophomore forward scored 20 of his game-high 28 points in the first half, hauled in seven rebounds and swarmed the floor defensively to lead Triton to its fourth straight Class A Boys Basketball Sectional 50 crown, 65-37 over the Blackhawks at The Trojan Trench Saturday.

Furious rally not enough for Lions at Westview

March 7, 2011

TOPEKA — Bremen played its best quarter of the season in Saturday’s Class 2A sectional final against host Westview. Unfortunately for the Lions, it couldn’t make up for the first half.
Down 18 points at halftime, Bremen cut Westview’s lead to four in the third quarter. The Lions got no closer, as Justin Jantzi’s 30 points propelled the No. 7 Warriors to a 56-46 victory.
To Bremen coach Kyle Hanyzewski, the competitive loss coupled with Friday’s win over Fairfield showed what the Lions could do with the proper mindset.

Eagles in, Pilgrims out at Sectional 19

March 5, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Culver Military Academy rallied past Mishawaka Marian for a 55-51 reprisal victory, while South Bend St. Joseph’s used suffocating defense to knock out defending champion Plymouth in Class 3A Sectional 19 semifinal action at The Rock Friday.
The Eagles and the Indians will face off in the championship game tonight at 7:30 p.m. EST.
ST. JOE 57, PLYMOUTH 44
The old adage goes that the best defense is a good offense, but St. Joe showed that sometimes good defense can make for a pretty good offense, too.

BREMEN 50, FAIRFIELD 43

Bremen will do just that Saturday night.
