Toyota Teamwork Classic
LHS teams falter in Toyota tournament openers
OAKLAND CITY, Ind. - It wasn't the start Lawrenceville High School's basketball teams were hoping for at the Toyota Teamwork Classic.

Both the Indians and Lady Indians were defeated by homestanding Oakland City Wood Memorial in the tournament's first game. Both will return to Gibson County, Ind., Thursday, Friday and Saturday, to three different locations.

The boys teams played first and the host Trojans scored the game's first nine points on the way to a 60-49 victory.

Wood Memorial then won the girls game, 59-47.

Boys game

The host Trojans (2-2) broke out to a 9-0 lead three minutes into the game, and LHS got no closer than four points the rest of the way.

Wood Memorial led by as many as 18 points early in the second half, and had leads of 18-9, 30-20 and 45-32 at the quarter stops.

"I thought this was a game we could have won," said LHS coach Randy Bishop, after his team fell to 2-6. "But with young kids sometimes you just don't get the job done."

Sophomore Harry Loeb, who hit six of 16 shots, topped the Tribe with 15 points. Freshman Bryce Winningham came off the bench to score 12. Six other LHS players added between two and five points. The Indians were without top scorer Brandt Cochran, a sophomore who sustained a sprained ankle in Friday's game against Robinson. Cochran's stutus for the rest of the tournament is unclear.

The Trojans held a 30-22 lead early in the second half, and used a 10-point run to take their biggest lead, midway through the third period.

Lawrenceville fought back to within 42-32, thanks to a 10-2 spurt, in which Loeb scored five points.

Loeb quickly scored the first two buckets of the final period, as LHS fought to within 45-36. The Indians continued to battle, and pulled to within 50-45 with 2:24 remaining on two foul shots by Will Fox. Cody Steffey's baseline jumper with 1:01 to play cut the margin to 51-47.

Wood Memorial was able to hold on from that point, making nine of 12 from the foul line.

"When we got to within five, I thought we were going to beat them," Bishop said. "But then we had a couple of breakdowns, missed a couple of easy shots and they broke our backs."

Wood Memorial sophomore Collin Robinson came off the bench to lead all players with 17 points. Robinson made just three field goals, but was 10 of 11 at the foul line, including seven of eight in the final period. Conner Sevier, a 6-4 junior, added 12 points and a game-high 12 rebounds.

The big difference in the game was at the foul line, where the Trojans were 23 of 37 while LHS made nine of 10. LHS was whistled for 26 fouls and lost Winningham, who picked up his fifth with 43 seconds remaining. The Trojans were called for only 11 fouls.

The Indians made 18 turnovers, but forced the hosts into making 25. Wood Memorial had a big edge on the boards, 37-19.

The Indians will play Princeton at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the new Princeton High School. On Friday, they'll face Castle at 7:15 p.m. at Princeton Middle School. LHS will conclude tournament play on Saturday.

"The challenge just goes on," Bishop said. "That's the way it is when you come to this tournament. You're going to play really good teams. But I'd rather do that than beat teams that are terrible."

Girls game

The Lady Indians were in good shape, leading 12-11 at the end of the opening period.

Then the roof caved in, as the Lady Trojans outscored LHS 24-6 in the second period to take control. Wood Memorial led 35-18 at halftime and 48-39 after three periods.

Freshman Morgan Parrish topped the Lady Indians with 13 points. Kelsie Ferrell, with 12 points, and Caitlyn Andrews, with 11, also finished in double figures.

Kourtney Osmon led the Indians with 11 rebounds, while Parrish grabbed nine. Ferrell led the team with four assists, while Osmon had four steals.

Chloe Bartley, a freshman for Wood Memorial, topped all scorers with 20 points. Two more freshmen, Brenna Maikranz and Carsen Robinson, added 13 and 11 points.

LHS will resume tournament play Thursday, as it will face Princeton at Princeton High School at 7:15 p.m. Thursday. It will conclude pool play Friday when it plays Linton, Ind., at Princeton Middle School in at 5:30 p.m.
