Squires notch win over Tri Central

by Gary Andrews

Less than 24 hours after a disappointing loss at Tippecanoe Valley the Manchester boys’ basketball team was back on the floor taking on Tri-Central. Riding a strong first half the Squires defeated Tri-Central 46-41.

Manchester got off to a great start, winning the first quarter 12-7. Chase Fierstos and Clayton Petrie both found the bottom of the bucket from behind the arch with Brayden Sewell and Phoenix Goad each getting a bucket. Fierstos had 5 points in the quarter.

The Squire defense would allow just one bucket in the second quarter, with the three pointers still coming on offense, this time from Claudell Dickantone. Dickantone would drain two from downtown with Cameron Brandenburg and Lucas Schilling getting buckets. Manchester won the quarter 17-7 and led 29-14 at the half.

Vikings too much for Norse

by Gary Andrews

The Northfield boys’ basketball team hosted a very talented Huntington North squad Saturday, falling to the Vikings 61-38.

Huntington got off to a quick 5-0 start on a three from Caleb Landrum and a bucket from Cody Adams. Austin Burns got the Norse on the board with a free throw, but the hot Huntington shooting continued. Kyle Platt would drain a three and was followed by a Matt Hogan bucket to increase the lead to 10-1. Tanner Wilcox would connect for the Norse to make it 10-3 before Hogan hit again to end the quarter with Huntington leading 12-3.

by Gary Andrews

With Tippecanoe Valley beating Manchester the Southwood boys’ basketball team needed a win at North Miami Friday to keep pace at having a shot at the TRC title. The Knights wasted no time flexing their muscle, jumping out to a 7-0 lead on their way to a 76-48 win.

Corey Phillipy would hit a three right off the bat that started a 7-0 run. A Zach Hobson free throw and a three from Jackson Blair made it 7-0 before an Evan Sumner three closed the gap to 7-3. Again the Knights would go on a 7-0 run, this time started by an Alex Harmon bucket. Corey Phillipy would then drain a deuce before Blair connected from behind the arch for the second time and Southwood led 14-3 after one.

Wabash County High School Basketball on Wabash WebTV

by Bill Barrows

I've spent more time watching the weather since New Year's Day than I do during a typical summer in anticipation of scheduling games and tournaments at the Field of Dreams. Apparently, that isn't going to change anytime soon. As I write this article, there is another storm brewing somewhere off the west coast that will be nicknamed Winter Storm Nika that could ruin the following schedule, but just in case it doesn't happen, here is the schedule for this week.

Wabash County high school basketball on Wabash WebTV

By Bill Barrows

To say that the artic deep freeze that we have experienced over the past couple of weeks has caused chaos with the high school basketball schedule, let alone the school schedule, is a huge understatement. So, I guess I will continue my stories to the kids about walking to school as a child through two feel of snow uphill both ways until spring. Oh, and here is the updated schedule for basketball games this week.

We begin with games on Tuesday, unless Mother Nature says otherwise. The Lady Knights of Southwood travel to Southern Wells for a non-conference game. The Lady Squires of North Manchester travel up to Triton and the Wabash boys will play at the Lakeland Christian Academy. On Wednesday, there will be a TRC game that is  a re-schedule from December, pitting the Lady Apaches of Wabash against Rochester at home. Wabash WebTV will be there to bring you all the action from Wabash on Wednesday, Jan. 29 starting at approximately 7:15 p.m.

by Gary Andrews

Wednesday night at home against Bluffton the Northfield Lady Norse basketball team got off to a hot start and led 24-6 after one, only to take their foot off the pedal in a 51-24 win. Thursday at Madison Grant that didn't happen, as the Norse led 19-2 after one and 38-5 at the half in route to a 64-18 win over the Argylls.

Getting a couple games in after their 20-day lay off, the Norse found their shooting, making 27 of 57 field goal attempts for 47 percent.
