Logansport takes down Maconaquah

Berries' Skaggs goes for 36 in feisty contest.

LOGANSPORT — Maconaquah’s boys basketball team gave Logansport a stern test on Saturday night at the Berry Bowl.

The Braves pushed the Berries but weren’t quite able to keep up over the full 32 minutes, as Logansport pulled away for a hard-fought 79-62 win.

It was Mac’s season opener, while Logan improved to 2-0 after a 43-point win over Peru on Wednesday.

Carter Skaggs scored a career-high 36 points to lead the Berries. He canned four 3-pointers and was 12 of 14 from the foul line. The junior is averaging 32.5 ppg in his first two games for Logansport.

Matt Jennings had 14 points, A.J. Smith scored 11 and Jalen Adaway added 10 for Logan.

“They’re a great team with Skaggs coming in from Pioneer, you know what he was bringing. Plus the talented underclassmen that [coach Pat Skaggs] has, it’s going to be an aggressive game,” Maconaquah coach Andy Steele said. “I was so proud with our guys. We didn’t back down from it.”

The Braves trailed 36-28 at halftime. Things got hectic in the second half as the teams combined for three technical foul calls and an intentional foul call — all the infractions were called on players.

But Carter Skaggs scored 25 of his 36 in the second half to carry the Berries to the win. Logan quickly built a 15-point lead following a technical foul on Mac that resulted in a six-point possession with 5:25 left in the third.

The Braves utilized a four-point play following a tech on the Berries and trailed 62-52 after three.

Andrew Wamsley and Skaggs opened the fourth quarter with baskets to put Logan up by 14. Skaggs ended the game scoring 15 straight for the Berries. One was on a free throw following an intentional foul by the Braves with 2:14 remaining. A technical foul was called on a Logan player following the intentional foul.
