Backboard shatters, Brownstown game postponed

BROWNSTOWN — Jack Benter has done a lot for the Brownstown Central boys basketball program for the past two-and-a-half years.

He has set single game and season scoring marks for the Braves in helping the team build up wins.

The Braves were playing Silver Creek in The Pit Friday night when Benter drove for a dunk with 2:21 left in the second period.

He did not let go of the rim in time and the collapsible rim didn’t collapse, breaking the fiberglass backboard and leaving fiberglass all over the free throw lane.

Benter’s basket put the Braves in front 37-35.

The game was postponed. Administrators from both schools will announce early next week when the game will continue.

Brownstown at 3-0 and Silver Creek at 2-0 are the only two schools that are unbeaten in MSC games.

The backboard will have to be replaced quickly as the Lady Braves will host Jennings County for junior varsity and varsity games today, starting at noon.

Brownstown won the junior varsity game Friday night 63-52. Lane Pendleton scored 18, Carter Covert 13, Pierson Wheeler 11, Owen Wischmeier eight, Micah Sheffer four, Gregory Hutcheson four, Caiden Gwin three and Preston Garrison two.

Cougars score home win over Shawe

The Trinity Lutheran boys basketball team won its first home game of the season on Friday night against Shawe Memorial.

Kowan Gross scored 18 to lead the way, Peyton Pollert 15, Luke Coomler nine, Jack Stuckwisch five, Charlie Hackman three, Josh Conrad two, Levi Pottschmidt two and Eli Ballard two.

The Cougars (2-8) will play at New Washington tonight.

The Medora boys basketball team kicked off the Southern Roads Conference Tournament with a 41-35 win over Madison Christian on Friday night.

Braxton McCory led the Hornets with 16 points on the night, Eli Sturgill had nine, Shepard Earl eight, Dawson Cornett three, Eli Lane three, Jaxon Nugen one and Hudson Johnson one.

The Hornets, now 4-5 this season, will play in the semifinal today at 10:30 a.m. If the Hornets win that, they will play for the Southern Roads Conference title later that night.
