WC drops 4th straight game

WASHINGTON — At a time when every boys basketball team in the state wants to be playing its best, the Washington Catholic Cardinals are still trying to find a rhythm.

The Cardinals (4-14) dropped their fourth game in a row in a 63-44 loss to Evansville Day (7-12) behind 28 points from Will Stevens and 23 from Derek Hammelman Tuesday night at the Bird Cage on Senior Night.

Washington Catholic sophomore A.J. Sellers got the Cardinals on the board quickly with a three-point play in the opening minute, but Evansville Day countered with a 10-0 run to take control of the game. Sellers scored two more baskets, but the Eagles led 14-7 when Washington Catholic coach John Howell took a timeout with 1:58 to play in the quarter. Out of the timeout, James Brown converted a three-point play and Sellers grabbed a loose ball and turned it into a transition layup to cut the deficit to 14-12 after one quarter.

"We were aggressive, but they had a ton of blocked shots," Howell said. "We were getting shots around the basket and I was very proud of that. We just had trouble getting shots — I liked how aggressive we were, but there comes a time where maybe we need to pop a shot fake and get to the free throw line."

The second quarter, however, belonged to Evansville Day's Derek Hammelman and Will Stevens. The pair combined for 12 points in the first quarter, but they did even better in the second. Hammelman and Stevens had eight points each in the quarter to give Evansville Day a 33-24 lead at halftime. Sellers and Zach Taylor each made three free throws to try to keep the Cardinals in the game, Washington Catholic was only able to make two shots from the field in the quarter, coming from Ethan Wichman and Brandon Strange.
