Cougars end 4-game skid

ELNORA — The North Daviess boys basketball team entered Friday night needing a win in the worst way.

The Cougars (7-8, 2-2 Southwestern Indiana) snapped a four-game losing streak by defeating SWIAC conference foe Bloomfield (11-6, 5-3) 48-42 Friday night at the Cougar Den behind 10 points apiece from Kelby Byrer and Zach Moore and eight points from Austin Buehler.

North Daviess hadn’t trailed since the first quarter, but Bloomfield was ready to put the Cougars through another close game. With two minutes to play in regulation, Bloomfield’s Brandon Van Sant scored a layup to cut the North Daviess lead to just one point, 41-40. Dusten Cook responded with a 3-pointer to give North Daviess a 44-40 lead with 92 second to play.

Kyle Robinson made a turnaround jumper to cut the lead to two points. North Daviess inbounded the ball with 1:11 to play and the Cougars ran as much clock as it could before the Cardinals fouled Moore. The junior forward stepped to the line and made both free throws to clinch the game for the Cougars. Buehler added two free throws of his own to seal the six-point victory.

“The bottom line for all of us — Zach (Moore), Dusten (Cook) hitting that 3-pointer, Brady (Helms) hit some shots and Kelby (Byrer) made some plays,” said North Daviess coach Brent Dalrymple. “We’re tired of not executing when it counts and tonight when it counted our kids really stepped up and proved to themselves that they can get this done. It was really fun to watch and fun to watch that transformation.”

The first half was a back and forth affair with North Daviess holding a two-point advantage in each of the first two quarter. Byrer came out on fire by making all three shots he attempted in the first quarter to give him a game-high six points in the opening quarter and help North Daviess take an 11-9 lead.
