At Toyota Classic Friday
Lady Indians keep LHS from going winless in pool play

By

PRINCETON, Ind. - Going winless in pool play in the school's first appearance at the Toyota Teamwork Classic was a possibility until Lawrenceville High School's girls basketball team took the floor Friday evening.

Playing at the venerable downtown gym that was home to Princeton High School teams for many decades, the Lady Indians whipped Linton, Ind., 45-21, to finish pool play with a 1-2 mark.

Later, Castle, Ind., demolished the LHS boys, 80-39. Lawrenceville finished 0-3 in the pool, losing the games by a cumulative 96 points.

Girls game

The Lady Indians were never in trouble and led by scores of 14-7, 24-10 and 35-12 at the quarter stops. The win came on the heels of Thursday's 78-26 setback to powerful Princeton.

"I thought our girls played a lot better tonight," said Bellville, whose team improved to 4-6. "We started out with a lot more confidence and once the first quarter was over, I think the girls felt like they were better than (Linton). That kind of confidence goes a long way."

Brianna Mefford and Morgan Parrish, the Lady Indians' 6-0 freshmen, were the only double-figure scorers in the game. Mefford tallied a season-high 18 points on seven field goals and four free tosses. She netted at least three points in all four quarters.

Parrish added 12 points on five buckets and a pair of free tosses. She also led all players with 16 rebounds.

Cailyn Andrews added three assists for LHS, while Parrish contributed six steals. Mefford and Kourtney Osmon had four each.

No player scored more than four points for the Lady Miners, who exited the game with a record of 0-13.

The Lady Indians played Saturday in the fifth place game. They return to action a week from tonight by hosting Fairfield.

Boys game

The 51-point loss is one of the worst on record for LHS, eclipsing a 50-point setback in a game six years ago. On Dec. 16, 2007, the Indians suffered an 84-34 loss at Effingham St. Anthony, on the way to finishing 0-23.

Castle (5-2) led 20-11 at the end of the opening period, but stretched the margin to 46-18 at halftime. The Knights, who scored the final eight points of the first half, put in the first 16 of the third quarter, which resulted in a 62-18 lead.

Castle led 69-23 after three periods, then outscored LHS 11-6 in the final eight minutes.

"It was a disappointing loss," said LHS coach Randy Bishop, after his team fell to 2-8. "I thought we played well for the first five minutes. But they intimidated us to the point where we couldn't make wide open shots. Once we got down by about 30, we kept throwing it away, making turnovers. We were definitely outmatched."

Harry Loeb, who hit 2 of 11 shots, topped the Indians with seven points. Brandt Cochran, who shot 3 of 14, added six. Six others tallied at least a basket for LHS.

Castle's Cayman Meier, who made 9 of 13 shots, scored 20 points to lead all players. Clay Seitz hit four of five shots and added 10.

LHS was hampered by 24 turnovers and shot poorly from start to finish. While Castle was making 31 of 53 shots, the Tribe was good on just 10 of 47 for 21 percent. LHS was a woeful 2 of 18 from behind the 3-point arc.

The Indians concluded the Classic Saturday against South Central, Ind. LHS travels to Hutsonville on Jan. 7 to resume the season.
