Vikings, Cougars advance with wins

(Continued)

“But we’ve taken care of that practice, we’ve done well, tonight was just a great effort. That was a good basketball team that can shoot a lot of three’s. I just felt like if our guys came in and guarded them like our guys were capable of guarding them, we could give them a lot of trouble.

“Give our guys credit for listening to the game plan, and then coming out on the floor and executing it. I thought we did a great job at the defensive end,” said Hughes.”

In the final game of the evening, Class A No. 16 North Daviess (3-1) used a strong fourth quarter to defeat North Posey (1-5). Holding a slim 44-42 lead after three periods of action, North Daviess started strong in the fourth quarter, building as much as a nine-point lead before netting the five-point win.

The Cougars placed four players in double figures, and were led by 20 points from Dusten Cook. But the big points for ND came from Brady Helms, who scored eight of his 15 points early in the fourth quarter to help the Cougars take control of a contest which saw North Daviess face as much as an 11-point deficit in the first half before battling back to trail just 34-29 at the break.

Alex Wittmer added 15 markers for the Cougars, including 6-8 from the line in the fourth quarter as ND was looking to hold onto the lead. Overall, ND was 11-14 from the stripe in the final eight minutes of play, with Cook hitting a perfect 4-4. Kelby Byrer added 10 points for ND.

Cougar mentor Brent Dalrymple liked the balanced attack and the total team effort his squad put forth against the Vikings.

“In the locker room, we talked about the fact that it was a team win, that everybody that came in did a couple of things for us, a couple of big things,” said Dalrymple. “Brady Helms scored for us, and it was off of Kelby or Alex passing him the ball, and Brady going and finishing. Cook stepped up and made some free throws and played great defense. Jaylon Lengacher, our freshman, had a trial by fire with Zach (Moore) in foul trouble.
