BOYS’ HOOPS: No. 10 Red Devils blow out Stars, 74-47

Special to Southern Indiana Preps
JEFFERSONVILLE — The Class 4A No. 10 Jeffersonville Red Devils put on a clinic Friday night against visiting Bedford North Lawrence.
The Red Devils of coach Joe Luce were efficient in their dismantling of the Stars. The final score was 74-47. Jeff held BNL to its second-lowest scoring night of the season — second only to a 61-39 loss to Class 4A No. 6 Bloomington South on Dec. 1. At the same time, the Red Devils scored more points against the Stars than any other team this season.
“We guarded really well and contested about every shot they took,” said Luce. “When they missed, we rebounded and were able to get out and run. And offensively we were very efficient. We have to be pleased with the way we played tonight. Overall, it was a balanced attack and a very good defensive game. I just thought overall, we had a really good game.”
Jeff (13-2, 4-2 Hoosier Hills Conference) demonstrated offensive balance as one key to the lopsided victory. Four Red Devils reached double figures, led by senior Bailey Falkenstein’s 23 points. Jaden Coleman added 16, Tre Coleman 14 and Jacob Jones 11.
“We played really well, we played together and we were really clicking,” said Falkenstein. “We moved the ball really well. We played exceptionally good defense. It was probably our best defensive game as a team.”
Jeff jumped out to an early 9-2 lead. Then, in an odd turning point of the game, BNL’s Jathan Ritter hit a 3-pointer and the Stars (10-6, 4-1) immediately called a timeout. That timeout seemed to energize Jeff, however, as the Red Devils scored the next 15 points to end the first period. Jeff led 24-5 at the end of the quarter.
“We just got going,” said Falkenstein about the run that essentially put the game away. “Jaden did his dunking, I was scoring, Tre was Tre and Jacob Jones ran the game.”
About midway through the second period, the Red Devils stretched the lead to 33-11 and it appeared there was no stopping them.
The Stars staged their last rally of significance at that point, however, outscoring Jeff 12-2 and pulling within a dozen points at 35-23.
A Jaden Coleman bucket to end the half put an end to that, however, and the Red Devils led 37-23 at the break.
The Red Devils dispelled all doubt to begin the second half, scoring the first nine points and for all practical purposes salting the game away.
While highly efficient on offense, going 28-of-51 from the floor (54.9 percent), the defense is what fueled Jeff for much of the time. The Red Devils were able to get out and run often, creating numerous easy baskets.
“I thought we were really solid defensively,” said Luce. “We were able to get stops, and when we get stops we can get out and run and good things happen for us.”
Ritter paced the Stars in scoring with 19 points. No other BNL player reached double figures. Jeff held the Stars to just 40.9 percent from the field on 18-of-44 shooting.
The Red Devils will travel to Evansville Harrison (11-5) tonight. Tip-off is scheduled for 8 EDT.
BNL will play at Greenfield-Central (4-10) tonight.
Note: Prior to Friday night’s game, Jeff honored its 1993 state championship team as it is the 25th anniversary of the school’s lone boys’ basketball state title. The Red Devils posted a 29-2 record that season as they defeated Ben Davis in the state championship game, 66-61.

BOYS’ HOOPS: No. 10 Dragons roll past Providence 63-35

Special to Southern Indiana Preps
CLARKSVILLE — Class 3A No. 10 Silver Creek was impressive Tuesday night at the Larkin Center against Providence.
Really impressive - the kind you need to add numerous exclamations marks at the end of the sentence.
The Dragons of coach Brandon Hoffman simply pummeled their hosts 63-35, especially in the first half. Silver Creek held Providence (5-10) to just two points in the first quarter. At the same time, the Dragons seemingly never missed from the field.
Providence coach Rob Murawski was duly impressed with Silver Creek’s start.
“They did not score on (only) two possessions that I am aware of,” said the Pioneer boss.
Hoffman was ecstatic with his team’s play from the tip.
“The big thing coming in here we talked about was getting off to a good start. It exceeded my expectations, to say the least,” said Hoffman.
Silver Creek (11-3) scored the final 21 points of the opening quarter and led 26-2. A 3-pointer to lead off the second quarter made it 29-2, and any remaining mystery was gone from this game.
Murawski was baffled and miffed at his team’s inability to be competitive.
“We had two points in a quarter,” he said. “They’re varsity. You can’t do that. That’s two games in a row they didn’t come out ready to play. If you would have asked me that Saturday and Monday after practice, I would have said no. We’ve got to make some adjustments.”
Silver Creek’s offense was on fire in the first half, and the Dragons led 37-14 at the intermission. The offense, as impressive as it was and as much as Hoffman liked, was not his main point for this game.
“We’ve kind of had a motto the last four or five years that we’re going to guard you, and if we make our shots, you’re in trouble,” he said.
The Dragons’ defense limited Providence’s offensive opportunities. Silver Creek completely shut down Providence’s Blake Murphy and Cullen Ebert in the first half. The pair is usually the main offensive threats for the Pioneers.
“I thought we had the physical advantage in size and speed,” said Hoffman.
By contrast, Murawski did not like his team’s defensive effort.
“We don’t play hard on defense sometimes,” he said.
Silver Creek built its advantage to as much as 34 points in the third quarter when they led 52-18.
Providence has lately been enduring strong shooting nights from recent opponents, something noticed by Murawski.
“We’ve been pretty good the last three years. People want to come out against us,” he said.
Still, what the Dragons did was impressive.
“Silver Creek is real good,” Murawski added.
Jack Hawkins led Silver Creek with 18 points. Zane Gross added 11. After being held scoreless the first half, Murphy pumped in 13 points in the second half to lead the Pioneers.
Silver Creek will play a weekend home doubleheader this Friday and SaturdayOn Friday, the Dragons will play Madison (6-8). Then on Saturday, they will play Class 4A No. 6 Bloomington South (15-2), a schedule addition last year.
Hoffman likes the challenge of facing a top 10 team. He also believes his team will not overlook Madison.
“We put Bloomington South on our schedule to make us better,” he said. “We’ve got six seniors, and they’re kind of having fun now. You get to this part of the season, and you want to embrace every game you have. If they overlook somebody, shame on them.”
Providence will play at Christian Academy (7-7) on Friday.

GIRLS’ HOOPS: Red Devils earn share of HHC title with 68-48 victory over Bulldogs

NEW ALBANY – Class 4A No. 9 Jeffersonville clinched at least a share of the Hoosier Hills Conference championship for the second consecutive season last Thursday at The Doghouse, defeating rival New Albany 68-48.
The Red Devils (15-4, 6-1 HHC) can clinch the conference title outright for the second year in a row if Bedford North Lawrence (5-1 HHC) and the Bulldogs (11-9, 4-1) each lose another HHC contest. The Stars will host Floyd Central in their conference finale Wednesday. New Albany has two more HHC games, which are at Columbus East on Monday and home to Seymour this coming Thursday. The Bulldogs must win both of those contests to earn a piece of the conference crown.
Sophomore Nan Garcia led Jeff with a game-high 21 points and eight rebounds. Teammate Tori Handley poured in 15 points as she shot 4-of-7 from 3-point range. Three of Handley’s four 3’s came in the first quarter to help the Red Devils pull out to a 17-6 lead.
Senior Britney Epperson was the third Jeff player to score in double figures with 10 points. Red Devil guard Kelsie James registered a solid floor game with seven rebounds, five steals, four points, four assists and one turnover.
Senior forward Kelsy Taylor had a double-double for New Albany with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Bulldog senior guard Julyen Condra wound up with 13 points.

GIRLS’ HOOPS: Pioneers stumble versus Austin 37-30 following huge win

Special to Southern Indiana Preps
CLARKSVILLE — A letdown after a huge win is not uncommon in high school basketball. Often it is to be expected.
For Providence, coming off a great road win Friday night at Class 2A No. 7 Triton Central, the tiredness came on Saturday afternoon. The Pioneers were hosts to Austin in a 1:30 p.m. start, and the heavy legs and the off-shooting day were obvious.
Nevertheless, Providence (9-10) made a good show of it before falling at the end, 37-30.
“We had it cut down right at the end, but we just didn’t have the legs,” said Providence coach Brad Burden.
Providence trailed the entire way, falling behind, and then trimming the lead. Every time, Austin (6-15) survived the comeback and pulled away again.
In the final quarter, it appeared as if the Pioneers were finally going to be successful at overtaking the Eagles. With 4:15 to play, Providence trailed just 31-30 and had opportunities to take the lead.
This final, almost-successful turnaround came because of tremendous defensive pressure applied by Providence in the second half. This resulted in numerous steals and points scored as a result.
“Defensively, we had plenty of steals and transition,” said Burden. “The girls played out of their minds (Friday) night, and we didn’t get home until 12:30 (a.m.). I’m so proud of the way they played today.”
Austin had outscored Providence in each of the first three quarters, and at times appeared to be on the verge of splitting the game wide open. The resilient Pioneers never let that happen, however, and always remained within striking distance.
After the lead had been cut to a single point in the final quarter, Austin scored the final six points of the game to get the win.
Natalie Boesing paced Providence with 14 points. The long-armed sophomore played the point of the half-court defense and got her hands on passes on numerous occasions. Many of those resulted in easy buckets for the Pioneers.
Addison Brasher led Austin with 15 points, while Grace Igleheart pumped in 14.
Providence has played its last three games without the benefit of leading scorer Hannah Wolford, who suffered an injury the week before against Charlestown. Burden has high hopes for his club, with the Class 2A Austin Sectional coming up and the return of Wolford.
“Once we get Hannah back, we’ll be a team to deal with,” said the Providence coach.
Providence will play at fellow Austin Sectional member Crawford County (12-7) on Tuesday night, tipping off at approximately 7:30.
Austin had a doubleheader on Saturday, playing at home in the evening against Crothersville. The Eagles won that game as well, 59-49 and moved to 7-15 on the season. They will play at Shawe Memorial (6-14) at about 6:30 Wednesday night.

Austin               6   14   11   6—37
Providence       1   10   10   9—30
Austin (6-15): Jalen Coomer 0, Grace Igleheart 14, Misti Kimberlin 3, Addy Law 3, Addison Brasher 15, Lacey Hall 2, Olivia Miner 0, Abi Phillips 0.
Providence (9-10): Kaylee Kaiser 2, Sierra Brooks 6, Natalie Boesing 14, Brinley Prather 2, Brigid Welch 6, Bailey Brown 0.
Total fouls: Austin 13, Providence 14.
Fouled out: Providence - Kaiser.

BOYS’ HOOPS: Murawski takes responsibility in Pioneers’ 55-38 loss to Henryville

Special to Southern Indiana Preps
CLARKSVILLE — Last Saturday evening, despise a loss to Jeffersonville, Providence coach Rob Murawski was upbeat with his team’s play.
Friday night at home at the Larkin Center for the first time in eight games, the Pioneers faced fellow Class 2A sectional member Henryville. The results turned out to be pretty bleak this time. After a 55-38 loss to the Hornets, Murawski found nothing consoling in his squad’s output.
“It’s all on me. It’s all my fault,” said the Providence coach. “I didn’t have them prepared.”
The game was never seriously in doubt. Henryville’s Nick Walker opened the contest with two smooth 3-pointers, and the Hornets were on their way to the victory.
Providence was cold from the field the entire night. Numerous missed shots from in close prevented the Pioneers from maintaining a serious drive that would keep them in the game.
“That’s all on me, too,” said Murawski. “I’ve got to make them work harder on taking those shots and making those shots in practice around the rim.”
Providence (5-9) trailed 12-8 near the end of the first period. Nick Sexton hit two free throws, and the Pioneers appeared to be back in the contest, trailing 10-8.
Henryville, however, scored six unanswered points and Providence vainly chased the Hornets the rest of the night.
In the second quarter, Providence closed to within six points at 22-16. But the Pioneers never did get this close the remainder of the game. Henryville led at half, 26-18.
Providence was able to make one final attempt at getting back into the game. The Pioneers’ Blake Murphy hit a 3-pointer in the third quarter to make the score 37-30.
Henryville responded as it had the entire game, scoring the next six points, and the lead was never less than double digits the rest of the way.
“I didn’t work them hard enough,” said Murawski. “I didn’t have them prepared well enough to play that team, and they are good. It’s just all on me.”
Walker took scoring honors for the night with 19 points. Thomas Green also finished in double figures with 12 points for the Hornets.
Sterling Huber and Murphy each had 11 for the Pioneers. Murawski expects more from his team in the future.
“The message is sent,” he said.
After losing the first three games of the year, Henryville has now reeled off 12 straight wins for a 12-3 record (1-0 in Southern Athletic Conference play.) The Hornets will have a rivalry game Saturday against SAC opponent Borden (5-5, 2-2 SAC).
Providence will have another home game at the Larkin Center on Tuesday against Silver Creek (10-3).

Henryville          12  14  15  14—55
Providence           8  10  12    8—38
Henryville (12-3): Nick Walker 19, Kade Badger 6, Kendall Dunn 8, Kasey Robertson 8, Thomas Green 12, Kevin Hollis 2, Trenton Guthrie 0, Trevor Badger 0, Logan Owens 0, Nick Beeler 0.
Providence (5-9): Blake Murphy 11, Cullen Ebert 7, Sterling Huber 11, Austin Barnett 0, Reece Libs 0, Nick Sexton 2, Hayden Burke 2, Trey Beatty 4, Aidan Finnegan 0, Bishop Edwards 1, Alec Fougerousse 0, Zach Johnson 0.

BOYS’ HOOPS: Romeo receives McDonald’s All-American honor Tuesday

OAK BROOK, Ill. – Romeo Langford earned another prestigious honor in his illustrious basketball career Tuesday.
The New Albany senior was named a McDonald’s All-American on Tuesday. The 6-foot-5 shooting guard will play for the East team in the McDonald’s All-American Game on Wednesday, March 28 at Philips Arena in Atlanta.
Langford leads the 11-1 Bulldogs this season in scoring at 33.5 points per game. He scored 42 points and grabbed nine rebounds in Class 4A No. 3 New Albany’s 112-48 home win over Scottsburg last Saturday. He also had seven steals, six assists and two blocked shots.
Langford moved up to ninth on Indiana’s all-time boys’ scoring list last weekend, passing former Indianapolis Brebeuf and Indiana University standout Alan Henderson. Langford currently has 2,447 career points.

BOYS’ HOOPS: Highlanders edge Jeff in top-10 showdown 55-51

Special to Southern Indiana Preps
FLOYDS KNOBS — When two top-10 teams meet in high school basketball in Indiana, people expect to see a tight, tough game.
Tuesday night at Floyd Central, the Class 4A No. 6 Highlanders met up with the Class 4A No. 9 Jeffersonville Red Devils. The game lived up to its expectations.
In the end, the host Highlanders pulled away in the final five minutes and emerged 55-51 winners.
The contest was close the entire way with 10 ties and 11 lead changes. The game also was physical, and generally the defense was hard-nosed.
“They (Jeff) are hard to play against,” said Floyd Central coach Todd Sturgeon. “Everyone on their team is strong.”
Jeffersonville (11-2 overall, 2-2 Hoosier Hills Conference) jumped out to a quick 7-2 advantage. But Floyd Central (12-1, 2-0) rallied and ended the first quarter with a 13-11 lead.
The teams went back and forth in the second period, with six lead changes and three ties. Floyd Central scored the last points of the quarter on a bucket by Cobie Barnes to take a 28-26 lead into the locker room.
Barnes and teammate Luke Gohmann provided most of the offensive power for the Highlanders in the first half. Barnes scored 11 points, and Gohmann added nine.
“I don’t think either one of those guys (Gohmann and Barnes) had their best game, but they had big, athletic defenders guarding them,” said Sturgeon.
Gohmann led the Highlanders in scoring for the game with 17 points, while Barnes finished with 13.
Bailey Falkenstein, coming off an off game against Providence last Saturday in Jeff’s 65-45 win, poured in 12 first-half points for the Red Devils. Falkenstein was the game’s leading scorer with 18 points.
The third quarter continued in the same vein, with four lead changes and three ties. Floyd Central took the lead for good during the period on an old-fashioned three-point play by Brendon Hobson, making the score 37-35.
Jeffersonville tied the score two more times at 39, and later in the fourth period at 45 on a bucket by Jaden Coleman. The Red Devils never reclaimed the lead, however.
A big spark for Floyd Central off the bench was Nick Winchell. The junior added eight points. He hit four clutch free throws down the stretch when the Highlanders outscored the Red Devils 10-6 to end the game.
“He was a big key to this game. Over Christmas he was sick with this Black Plague that everybody’s been getting. But in practice, he’s been getting better and better,” said Sturgeon of Winchell.
For Jeffersonville, the end of the game seemed to be a struggle to get the shots the Red Devils wanted.
“(At the end) offensively, we had possessions where we didn’t make very good choices,” said Jeffersonville coach Joe Luce. “We kept the ball around the perimeter too much, and didn’t get good shots. Unfortunately, they capitalized and that was the game.
“We were never able to get the lead a little bit and spread the floor.”
By contrast, Floyd Central executed well over the final five minutes, spelling the difference in the game.
Gohmann scored twice during this time. Winchell hit four free throws and Matt Weimer also hit two free throws down the stretch.
During the same stretch, when Floyd Central enjoyed its largest lead of the night at 53-47, Jaden Coleman hit two buckets and Falkenstein hit a shot with 10 seconds remaining.
“At the end of the day, we grew up a little bit. We also showed some immaturity in pressure situations,” said Luce.
Jeffersonville will return to the court at Johnson Arena on Saturday, hosting HHC opponent Columbus East (5-5, 0-1). Floyd Central will play at home against conference foe Jennings County (3-9, 0-2) on Friday.

BOYS’ HOOPS: Coleman brothers pace Jeff past Providence 65-45

Special to Southern Indiana Preps
JEFFERSONVILLE — Coleman is not just a great name for camping equipment. At Jeffersonville on Saturday night, the name Coleman meant outstanding basketball.
Senior Jaden Coleman and his brother Tre Coleman, a sophomore, combined for 43 out of Jeffersonville’s 65 points. Their production carried the Red Devils to a 65-45 win over visiting Providence at Johnson Arena.
Jaden Coleman carried the load in the first half, scoring 18 of his game-high 24 points. For the game, he also snared 13 rebounds.
“I was just attacking the rim and trying to score,” he said.
Score he did, mostly inside the paint, and on break-away layups. The elder Coleman had three dunks on the night, the piece de resistance coming on a spectacular throw-down from a pass by teammate Jacob Jones on a fast break.
“Not only the dunks and the shots (Jaden) made, but the things he did tonight that were extremely special was that he rebounded and played great perimeter defense,” said Jeff coach Joe Luce.
Tre Coleman ended up with 19 points, shooting 8-of-10 from the field
Providence (5-8) played the Red Devils tight for most of the first half. The Pioneers trailed just 16-14 with 4:13 remaining in the second quarter.
However, Class 4A No. 9 Jeffersonville (11-1) ended the quarter on an 11-2 run to lead 27-16 at the intermission.
Providence coach Rob Murawski was generally pleased with his team’s performance overall. He said, though, that a couple of things really hurt.
“I thought we played well at times,” Murawski said. “We were there for the most part. Our rotations were good. Then Cullen (Ebert) got in foul trouble, and that hurt us. And turnovers above the free-throw line killed us.”
The Pioneers ended the night with 22 turnovers. Many of those resulted in easy buckets for the Red Devils.
“Offensively, we scored (45) points and had (22) turnovers. Anytime you score (45) points and have (22) turnovers, that’s remarkable,” said the Providence coach.
Luce was particularly pleased with his team’s defensive effort, especially considering the Red Devils getting off to a slow night from the field.
“The first half I thought we did a really good job defensively,” said Luce. “You give up 16 points, I don’t care who you’re playing, that’s an accomplishment. They (Providence) had two 3’s early, and after that we just gave them 10 more (points) for the half. After three quarters they have just 30 points, so we’re giving them just 10 points per quarter. That’s something we’ve wanted to get better at, and I thought we did that tonight and got some points in our transition. We shot great shots in the first half. We just didn’t hit them.”
Particularly having an off night from the field was Jeff’s Bailey Falkenstein, usually Jeff’s leading scorer. The senior hit just 1-of-11 field-goal attempts and finished with six points.
The second half began with the two teams trading baskets, and the Red Devils had a 10-point lead at 31-21. Things really began kicking in for Jeff at that time, though. Falkenstein’s lone field goal started the Red Devils on an 11-0 run, and the lead was at 20 at 42-21.
Jeff really got many of its transition points during the second half, and that changed the game for good.
“As far as speeding the game up, we got some steals and easy baskets, and once you do that you get some easier shots from the floor,” said Luce.
Besides the Coleman brothers, Jones also reached double figures for Jeff with 10 points.
Sterling Huber paced Providence with 14 points, while Blake Murphy added 13.
The Red Devils punished Providence on the boards, 41-22. Besides Jaden Coleman’s 13 rebounds, Falkenstein snared eight.
“We went small,” said Murawski. “When you’re (5-foot-6), 5-6, it’s hard to rebound the ball against their size.”
Jeffersonville has now blitzed two opponents since losing to New Albany on Jan. 5.
“We got our wake-up call against New Albany. We’re on track a lot better now,” said Jaden Coleman.
Jeffersonville will play at Class 4A No. 6 Floyd Central (11-1) Tuesday in a game that was rescheduled from Friday. Providence will return to the Larkin Center on Tuesday after eight consecutive games away from home against potential Class 2A sectional opponent Crawford County (4-8).

BOYS’ HOOPS: Red Devils rebound from New Albany loss, 90-46

Special to Southern Indiana Preps
JEFFERSONVILLE — Most people assumed that Class 4A No. 10 Jeffersonville would respond after losing to rival New Albany on Friday night.
Most people also had a degree of pity directed towards Christian Academy of Indiana, Jeff’s opponent on Saturday at Johnson Arena.
The Red Devils of head coach Joe Luce made a demonstrative response coming off that loss and facing CAI.
What a statement it was.
Jeffersonville (10-1) essentially put the game away in the first three minutes of the game and rolled past the Warriors by a 90-46 score. The lead was so large, Luce took four of his starters out midway through the third quarter, and they never returned.
“We learned some stuff about ourselves (Friday) night,” Luce said. “They were disappointed in the way they played, and we wanted to come out and play at a different level and be locked in defensively.”
A different level is an understatement. The Red Devils dominated in every way imaginable.
Jeffersonville placed four players in double figures, led by senior Bailey Falkenstein with 25 points. He pumped in 22 in the first half. Also in double digits were Jaden Coleman and Zeke Smith with 18 apiece, and Tre Coleman added 15.
In contrast, Christian Academy (7-6) had Stephen Cook with 18 and Noah Williams finished with 10.
The Red Devils torched the nets, shooting 62.5 percent from the field (40-of-64). CAI shot 40 percent from the field on 18-of-45 shooting.
Jeffersonville controlled the boards as well, hauling down 36 rebounds total, led by Jaden Coleman with seven. CAI collected just 13 total rebounds.
“They (Christian Academy) are not a bad team,” said Luce. “I just thought our guys focused on getting things done in the correct way. I thought we played well tonight together. I don’t think (CAI) ever got to the point where they felt comfortable against our pressure and our transition.”
Jeffersonville took the mystery out of the game from the outset. The Red Devils scored the first 11 points of the game, forcing CAI coach Steve Kerberg to call a timeout at the five-minute mark of the first quarter.
Two and one-half minutes later, Kerberg needed a second timeout when Jeff ran the advantage to 20-6. The first period ended with the Red Devils leading 28-10.
The Red Devils racked up 33 more points in the second quarter to lead at the break, 61-23.
The assault continued through the third frame, although four of Jeff’s starters went to the bench for good midway through the period. After three quarters, the Red Devils led 81-35.
“I thought we were good in the half court tonight, which we were not on Friday,” said Luce. “It was important we got some baskets off our half-court offense. We did a better job of getting the ball to the right people.”
Jeff will return to action this coming Friday at Class 4 No. 7 Floyd Central (10-1) in a key Hoosier Hills Conference matchup. Christian Academy will be at home next Friday against potential sectional opponent Lanesville (5-6).

GIRLS’ HOOPS: Bulldogs get past Madison to stay undefeated in HHC 45-41

Special to Southern Indiana Preps
NEW ALBANY — The shooting for New Albany inside the gym matched the bracing cold outside Thursday night. The Lady Bulldogs got enough, however, to get by visiting Madison.
New Albany led nearly the entire game, fell behind briefly in the fourth quarter, and then did what it needed to do to win by a 45-41 score.
The Lady Bulldogs shot 19-of-55 from the floor (34.5 percent). Included in that total was an 0-for-11 number from beyond the 3-point arc.
“It was ugly. But we came out with a win, and that’s the objective,” said New Albany coach Tammy Geron.
The victory snapped a four-game losing streak, and ran the Lady Bulldogs’ record to 9-7 overall and 3-0 in the Hoosier Hills Conference.
“We didn’t shoot the ball well. It’s probably the worst we’ve shot in a long time. You’re going to have nights like that, but you’ve got to overcome it,” added Geron.
New Albany jumped out to a quick 8-0 lead due mainly to 6-foot-2 senior Kelsy Taylor, who scored the first six points of the game.
Taylor finished the game with 10 points. But she dominated more on the glass, cleaning 12 rebounds, including four offensive boards.
“On a night like tonight when you’re not hitting shots, we’ve got to get offensive rebounds, and we got some big ones tonight down the stretch,” said Geron.
On the night, New Albany grabbed 13 offensive rebounds as a team.
After the initial 8-0 run, Madison (6-11, 1-5 HHC) slowly climbed back into the game, thanks in large part to New Albany running into some foul problems.
New Albany led 10-5 at the end of the first quarter. Madison climbed to with a single point at 12-11, forcing Geron to call a timeout with 4:57 to go until halftime.
“We were able to pressure them at the beginning of the game and speed the game up,” said Geron. “We got out to the good lead, but we had to change that up when we got into foul trouble. That played into their favor.”
After the timeout, New Albany scored the final eight points of the half and led at the break, 20-11.
The third quarter saw Madison trim the deficit again to five points by quarter’s end at 31-26. The Lady Cubs then scored the first six points of the fourth period to take their first lead of the game at 32-31.
New Albany immediately got the lead back on a bucket by Savanna Pinkston. Madison reclaimed the lead on two free throws by Hannah Imel. New Albany’s Ally Willis gave the lead back to the Lady Bulldogs for good with a bucket.
Down by three points at 43-40, Madison had a final opportunity to tie, but a 3-point attempt by Paige Young did not fall. Willis then got fouled and hit two free throws with 1.9 seconds to play made it 45-40.
Madison was fouled on the last play, and the Cubs’ Bailey Dyer hit 1-of-2 free throws to end the scoring at 45-41.
“I was real proud of the kids at the end, especially after (Madison) got the lead in the end, and we got it back and in control,” said Geron.
Pinkston joined Taylor with 10 points. The Lady Bulldogs had a balanced attack. Willis and Alayasia Douglas each had eight and Julyen Condra added seven. Imel was the game’s leading scorer with 21 points.
New Albany will return to Hoosier Hills action on Saturday at Floyd Central (7-10, 0-4), tipping off at 7:30 p.m. Madison will play at Silver Creek (7-10) at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

BOYS’ HOOPS: Five crucial factors in New Albany’s 59-48 road win over Carmel

CARMEL – Indiana Mr. Basketball front-runner Romeo Langford led New Albany to a 59-48 victory over host Carmel on Dec. 16 at the Eric Clark Activity Center.
It was the Bulldogs’ third win in a row since their lone loss of the season at archrival Floyd Central on Dec. 8 in overtime, 49-47.
Below are the five crucial factors in New Albany’s triumph over the Greyhounds:

Despite an off-night shooting the ball, Langford wound up with a game-high 19 points as he ended the weekend in 14th place on Indiana’s all-time boys’ scoring list. The 6-foot-5 guard registered 29 points in the Bulldogs’ 76-33 home win Dec. 15 over Seymour.
Langford was 7-of-20 from the field and 2-of-12 from 3-point range. He grabbed five rebounds, made a game-high four steals and distributed a team-high three assists.
“He just makes plays. We just try to put him someplace where he can make plays,” New Albany head coach Jim Shannon said. “We’ll put him at the point. We’ll put him on the baseline. We’ll run him to the high post. We’ll run him off a ball screen. We’re just always searching to try to get the ball in his hands because he’s so creative and he’s a load to handle.”

The biggest play Langford made in the victory came with 4:25 left in regulation, and it did not show up in the box score.
With the Bulldogs (6-1) leading 43-39, Langford drew a charge on 6-10 Greyhound forward John Michael Mulloy. It was Mulloy’s fifth foul as he left the game with 11 points and a team-high six rebounds.
“He’s just really smart,” Shannon said about his standout. “The (New Albany assistant) coaches had been discussing a couple of possessions before that about making another (defensive) switch (on Mulloy), and I said, ‘No. He’s staying on him.’ I guessed right. Sometimes you guess wrong. It’s just a guess, but it was an educated guess.”
Mulloy scored all 11 of his points in the third quarter to help the Greyhounds (4-3) tie the score at 35 at period’s end. New Albany was up by as much as six points during the stanza. After Mulloy fouled out, New Albany outscored Carmel 16-9 to collect win No. 6 of 2017-18.
Shannon had Bulldog sophomore forwards Trey Hourigan and Julien Hunter guarding Mulloy in the early parts of the contest before having Langford defend the Carmel big man.
“Mulloy started to really hurt us – I mean bad,” Shannon said. “We tried a couple of different things on him. We went with Hourigan and then we went with Julien on him. Then I finally decided I had enough and put Romeo on him. That seemed to be something we should’ve gone to earlier, but you’ve got to be careful not getting him in foul trouble.”

In the fourth quarter when New Albany outscored Carmel 24-13, the Bulldogs shot a perfect 17-of-17 from the free-throw line. They knocked down 14 foul shots following Mulloy’s fifth foul. For the game, New Albany was 22-of-24 from the stripe (91.7 percent).
Senior guard Sean East did the most damage at the line in the fourth, connecting on eight free throws.

Langford got lots of support in the scoring column from East, Hourigan and Hunter.
East wound up with 18 points, scoring 10 in the final quarter. He shot 4-of-11 from the field and a spotless 10-of-10 from the line. East also had three assists and two steals.
Hourigan and Hunter each tallied nine points, combining to hit six of their seven field-goal attempts.
Both players had a good night on the boards as well. Hunter grabbed a game-high eight rebounds, while Hourigan had seven.

Once again, New Albany played in front of a capacity crowd with Langford being the star attraction.
Nearly 4,000 spectators witnessed the game as the New Albany players dealt with an inspired Carmel student section. Shannon was impressed with his team’s poise in putting up with the raucous atmosphere.
“It was a great win. I’m really proud of them for being able to withstand a two-hour road trip and play in a tough environment. That was a really smart, well-coached team that they beat tonight. They were really solid,” Shannon said.

SOIN PREPS STAR: Romeo Langford, New Albany – As usual, Langford’s all-around game was on full display. He registered 19 points, five rebounds, four steals and three assists. But drawing the fifth foul on 6-foot-10 Carmel forward John Michael Mulloy by taking a charge in the fourth quarter was a pivotal play in leading the Bulldogs to the key road win.
