Logansport takes down Maconaquah

Berries' Skaggs goes for 36 in feisty contest.


The outcome had already been determined at that point as the Berries led 76-60 after the free throws were shot.

Kyle Dinn scored all 21 of his points in the second half to lead the Braves. Wyatt Hughes, a 6-6 freshman, added 16 points in the contest.

The Braves had a tough break when Adam Harts took an inadvertent elbow from Jennings on a Jennings drive with 4:02 left in the third quarter. Harts suffered a gash above his eye that required stitches and did not return. He scored 13 points in the game.

“He’s a tough kid and I know he was very upset that happened because he wanted to stay in the game,” Steele said. “On Monday we’ll see where he is, if he’s out. But he’s going to come back even stronger and more aggressive.”

Pat Skaggs was impressed with the Braves.

“I was very impressed with what they did. They have some kids that can really shoot the 3, and of course the [K.J.] Walton kid is a heck of an athlete. Dinn had an outstanding game.

“I was very impressed with their team. The big freshman kid showed some promise. Coach Steele brought his team in here to be physical and it was a good test for us.”

Steele is looking forward to having a successful season with his squad.

“We have a solid group of guys that any one of them can go for 20 points a night. It’s a great team atmosphere this year. I absolutely love what we’re doing offensively and defensively,” he said. “I told them I’ll take this loss if that means we’re going to win the Miami County Tournament, we’re going to compete in conference and we’re going to win the sectional.”

The Braves host North Miami next Friday.
