BOYS PREVIEWS: Bengals vs. Huskies in battle for MIC hardware

Scott brothers, Northrop visit Kats in tasty matchup.

Sophomore wing Logan Primerano leads Peru in scoring at 15.6 ppg and has shown himself to be especially dangerous when going coast to coast. Power forward Joe Comerford is second in scoring at 12.4 ppg and leads the team at 7.7 rebounds per game.

Peru will be challenged to get through Heights’ defense.

“They use their physicality and athleticism on the other end of the floor to make things extremely difficult,” Metcalfe said.

F.W. Northrop (16-6) at Kokomo (18-2)

The Class 4A No. 8 Wildkats have won six straight and wrapped up only their second-ever unbeaten run to a North Central Conference championship with an intense win over Richmond last week.

“That game, I thought really reiterated, solidified, that we’re a tough team,” Kat coach Brian McCauley said. “We understand the importance and value of taking care of the basketball, we understand the importance and value of defensive transition. We were down five [rebounds] at the half and outrebounded them by seven in the second half. That was a big key.

“With all that being said, we need to play a lot better. As good as Richmond is, I think Fort Wayne Northrop is just as good if not better. That’s not to take anything away from Richmond, but Northrop, they’re older, stronger, they’re skilled, just as athletic if not more athletic.”

Northrop is led by twin guards Bryson Scott and Brenton Scott. Bryson is averaging team highs of 23.4 ppg and 6.7 rpg, while Brenton adds 19.5 ppg. Forward Cory Womack adds 8.2 ppg

“It’s challenging enough to face a team that has one Division I player, let alone two. Then the other guys complement them well,” McCauley said.

“Brenton Scott, going to Indiana State, [is] just a prolific 3-point shooter, and Bryson Scott’s the best open-court player in the state. It’s appropriate he’s going to Purdue. When he gets a defensive rebound, he’s like a train going to the rim. He’s like a locomotive running over anything that’s in his way. He draws a lot of fouls because he’s so strong and fast and physical.”
