Brownstown beats North Daviess in 3rd place game

ELNORA - Brownstown Central rebounded from its first loss of the season to beat North Daviess 87-53 in the consolation game of the Graber Post Holiday Tournament. Brownstown, ranked No. 5 in 3A, grabbed the lead on their first possession when Collin DeHart hit a basket and North Daviess never caught up from there.

DeHart tallied 10 points for the Braves in the opening quarter as the Braves used a full-court press and trapping half court defense to jump out to a 23-15 lead. North Daviess stayed close on the play of Kelby Byrer who scored 7 of his 9 points in the first quarter.

Brownstown Central continued to apply the pressure in the second quarter. Chaz Schneider came off of the bench and hit three 3-pointers and a 2-point bucket for eleven points in the quarter. North Daviess Alex Wittmer hit a pair of 3-pointers and free throw, but the Braves extended their lead to 57-31 at the half.

North Daviess came out of the half and couldn’t find the bottom of the basket while Brownstown Central went on a 20-point run. The Cougars Dusten Cook scored the team’s first points of the second half with two minutes left in the quarter. Schneider scored nine points and Jacoby Shade added eight as the Braves outscored the Cougars 28-5 and extended the lead to 75-36.

In the final quarter Brownstown stopped pressing and North Daviess chipped into the lead led by Cook scoring eight points. The Braves emptied their bench with three minutes left in the game and a commanding lead. Schnieder led all scorers with 20 points. Three other players scored in double figures Cam Shoemaker had 15, DeHart 14 and Shade 12.

North Daviess was led in scoring by Alex Wittmer with 17 points, Cook added 15. Kelby Byrer added nine points, eight boards and seven assists, while Brady Helms added six and Zach Moore had four.

“Brownstown Central is a very good team,” said Cougar coach Brent Dalrymple after the game.

Brownstown moved to 6-1 on the season with the win, but were handed their first loss of the year by Barr-Reeve on Friday night.

The 87 points scored by the Braves is the most in the Graber Post Tournament since Barr-Reeve scored 92 against Cloverdale in 2009.

North Daviess claimed fourth place in tourney.
