Plymouth earns needed win at Concord

January 15, 2011

DUNLAP — Plymouth’s boys basketball team drained 10 treys and collected a much-needed 52-47 win at Northern Lakes Conference rival Concord Friday.
Ryan McNeil scored each of his game-high-tying 15 points from behind the arc for the Pilgrims. Sean Smith, in his first night back from a five-game suspension, made an immediate impact for Plymouth with 15 points.
Mack Mercer, a 6-foot-7 freshman, added 14 points for Plymouth, which snapped a six-game skid.

Defense pushes Lady Cavs past Triton

January 15, 2011

BOURBON — Culver Community girls basketball head coach Tony Scheub mulled over his team’s side of the scoring ledger Friday night at Triton.
“Boy, we didn’t score very many points,” he said.
True. But the Class 2A No. 8 Cavs surrendered far fewer.
Buffeted by a superlative team defensive effort and double-doubles from senior twin towers Gwen Zehner and Patrice McBee, Culver defeated Triton 42-31 at The Trojan Trench to remain perfect in Northern State Conference play with only dates with LaVille and John Glenn left on the league slate.

Trojans start fast in win over Glenn

January 13, 2011
