Cardinals fall at South Central

ELIZABETH — The Washington Catholic boys basketball team was looking for a win in its regular season finale to avoid going into the postseason on a losing streak.

The Cardinals (4-15) fell behind early to South Central (Elizabeth) and lost 64-30 Saturday afternoon for their fifth straight loss and third straight by double digits.

Washington Catholic committed 30 turnovers and had only player in double figures (Brandon Strange) in a game that South Central was able to do whatever it wanted offensively. The Rebels shot 60 percent from the field in the first half and 54 percent for the game and they had three players in double figures.

South Central came out firing early as it took a 20-2 lead after one quarter and after an 11-5 advantage in the second quarter, the Rebels led the Cardinals 31-7 at halftime and had complete control. The Cardinals rebounded with their best quarter of the night while scoring 15 points in the third, but the Rebels matched with 21 points to take a 52-22 lead into the final quarter. South Central held a 22-18 rebounding advantage.

South Central outscored Washington Catholic 12-8 in the final eight minutes to finish out the 34-points victory. Washington Catholic shot just 8-for-21 for the game and made 11-of-17 free throws in the final game of the regular season. Strange led the Cardinals with 10 points, A.J. Sellers added nine, Zach Taylor had four, Jon Mitchell added three, Ethan Wichman and James Brown had two points apiece.

The Cardinals will face the winner of the Loogootee-Vincennes Rivet Class A Sectional 63 first-round matchup in Friday night’s second semifinal at the Cougar Den in Elnora.
