Boys basketball area rounndup

Walton scores 20 in Maconaquah's win.

Lewis Cass’ boys basketball team battled back from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter to force an overtime session against Hamilton Heights, but the Huskies regained control in the extra session to claim a 73-70 win in both teams’ Mid-Indiana Conference opener Friday at Walton.

The Kings trailed 53-43 with 7:38 left in the regulation. Over the next five minutes, Cass went on a 17-5 run to take a 60-58 lead on Austin Keisling’s jumper with :50 left. Heights’ Kurry Miller tied it at 60-60 to send it into overtime.

In the overtime, the teams battled back and forth until the final minute. Heights led 72-67, when Blake Hadley hit a 20-foot 3-pointer to make the score 72-70 with :02.5 seconds left in the game.

Heights hit one of the two free throws to make it 73-70. Cass tried to tie it, but Jake Martin’s 3-pointer fell short.

“They had us outsized at every position,” Cass coach Jon Kitchel said. “They’re not only a tall team, they are an extremely physical team. They are very, very strong. But our guys have so much fight in them. They are battlers and they fight to the very end.

“We had a couple of opportunities there. If a break went our way, then it could have been a different outcome. We will live to fight another day.”

The Huskies gained control in the second quarter, outscoring the Kings 20-13 in the quarter to take a 35-25 halftime lead. The Huskies kept a comfortable lead throughout the third quarter.

Keisling led Cass with 25 points. Hadley and Ryan Bixler each added 15 for the Kings.

“Austin had a big game,” Kitchel said. “Blake [had] a tough two and half quarters, but stepped it up in the last quarter and a half. Bix, with his sized and guard, he does a tremendous job for us on the boards. Victor DeJesus had a really big game for us.”

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
