Kats secure share of NCC title

Kokomo pulls away from Logan in fourth quarter.

(Continued)

Logansport —

“He had a great night, made great decisions offensively, was very active defensively. He had a very impressive defensive play on Higgins, the best shooter in the NCC. He did a great job of contesting, blocked a 3-point shot and came down and scored. He played really, really well on his 18th birthday,” he said.

Penny led the Berries with 14 points, five rebounds, four steals and three assists. Higgins had 13 points on 4-of-6 shooting from 3-point range. Jacob Snow hit both of his 3-point attempts and finished with nine points. Alex Emmerd added six points and five boards.

“Persons was pretty good in the stretch down there. But I can’t fault our kids’ effort,” Logan coach Mark Victor said. “We came out and battled hard. We mixed up our lineup a little bit. I thought the guys that were in there played well. It just came down to a possession here or a possession there.”

Persons scored right before the buzzer to give the Wildkats a 20-11 after one quarter. The Kats led as much as 32-19 in the first half before the Berries responded with a run. After Penny recorded a steal and dunk late in the half to make it an eight-point game, Brad Dockemeyer scored on a putback basket to give the Kats a 34-24 halftime lead. It was the Kats’ third straight score on a putback.

The Wildkats went cold to start the second half, and Higgins and Snow hit back-to-back 3-pointers to bring the Berries to within 42-36 after three quarters. The Berries got the lead all the way down to three before the Kats had the answer late.
