Boys Basketball

Braves’ comeback falls short

After a rough first half, the Brownstown Central boys basketball team came out firing in the second, but the hole dug in the opening 16 minutes was too big, falling 53-44 to Providence on senior night.

Derek Thompson led the Braves with 19 points, scoring the majority of those in the third quarter. Early on, Thompson was the lone Brave to have a shot fall through the net.

Fellow senior Isaiah Wineinger scored nine, Clay Chastain had eight and Aidan Schroer scored four. Both Nathan Koch and Clayton Barger rounded out the scoring with two apiece.

Tigers end losing streak

Crothersville ended an eight-game losing streak against Southern Athletic Conference rival Henryville with a 47-37 victory Saturday night.

Josh Thomas led the Tigers with 17 points, followed by Ethan Shirley’s 11. Jayden Walls and Cable Spall each gathered six, Quinten Keasler had five and Carson Farmer rounded out the scoring with two.

It’s the second win in three games for the Tigers, who will end their regular season Friday at home against area rival Austin.

Medora notches victory No. 2

The Hornets scorched the nets in the first quarter with 22 points en route to a 55-48 win over Washington Catholic.

Medora ran into some lulls, especially during a five-point third quarter, but finished strong with 17 points to hang on for the win.

Isaiah Myers led the way for Medora with 17 points, 10 of them coming in the final stanza.

Jayvin Spurgeon and Braxton McCory both tallied 11, while Bryce Guffey rounded out the double-digit scoring for the Hornets with 10.

Jack Combs and Shepard Earl each had two, and Caleb Sturgill hit a free throw to round out the Medora scoring.
