BOYS BB PREVIEWS: Kats set to battle Bronchos for trip to sectional final

Several area boys squads ready to take to the court tonight.


The Kats are led by Tayler Persons (17.3 ppg), LaBradford Sebree (15.3) and Erik Bowen (10.1).

Kokomo scores 60.8 ppg and allows 46 ppg. Jeff scores 49 and allows 54.

• The second semifinal pits Logansport (12-8) vs. McCutcheon (14-8). Logansport took a 44-41 win when the teams met in the regular season, on Dec. 15.

“[The Berries] obviously had success against McCutcheon earlier in the season, but McCutcheon is a tough team with a lot of weapons. That will be an interesting game,” McCauley said.

Kokomo owns wins over both teams, rallying to beat McCutcheon 51-50 on Jan. 5 at Memorial Gym, and beating Logan 58-46 on Feb. 7 at the Berry Bowl.

Class 3A

Twin Lakes Sectional

Mid-Indiana Conference teams Maconaquah and Western are in action against Hoosier Conference teams tonight in the semifinal round of the Twin Lakes Sectional.

In the 6 p.m. game, Maconaquah (12-9) takes on Benton Central (6-15) in the first meeting between the schools in at least the class tournament era.

The teams have just one common opponent, Twin Lakes. Maconaquah beat the Indians 61-56 in the sectional opener Tuesday night. Benton Central dropped a 62-42 decision to the Indians in Hoosier Conference play.

In the 7:45 game, Western (13-8) and West Lafayette (17-5) will renew a great rivalry. The teams are meeting in sectional play for the 10th time in 11 years. The Panthers are the two-time defending sectional champions — the Red Devils previously had a two-year reign.

Western reached the semifinal round with a 66-52 victory over Peru in Wednesday’s first game. West Lafayette followed with an impressive 46-27 victory over Northwestern.

The Red Devils are led by their front-court tandem of 6-foot-8 Justus Stanback and 6-5 Brian Bangs. They combine for 25.4 points and 15.4 rebounds per game. Stanback is an IUPUI recruit.

Bangs had a huge game against the Panthers in the regular season, scoring 14 points and grabbing 22 rebounds to help the Red Devils take a 65-52 win on Jan. 5 at West Lafayette.
