Super Bowl-The 4th team ever to finish in last place in one year, to turning around the next year to being the best team. The Philadelphia Eagles did just that last night winning the Super Bowl 41-33 over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. In week 14 Eagles fans thought there hopes would end after Carson Wentz went down with a season ending injury. The Eagles would call on Nick Foles which fan doubted. Last night Nick Foles went from a backup QB to a Super Bowl champion, “I Felt calm we have a great group of guys”, “We never gave up we just went out and played football” “I am just blessed to be here” said Foles.
Boys Basketball- The Mississinewa Indian basketball team defeated Delta on Saturday 56-45 making the Indians 11-5 on the season. The Indians head to Marion tomorrow night looking for revenge on the Giants after last year’s double overtime loss 111-103. Tim Leavell broke the Giant all time scoring record with 55 points in that game. Marion beat Muncie Central last Thursday in Overtime on a Jalen Blackmon buzzer beater. Blackmon had 32 points in the Giants win. Mississinewa is led in scoring by 6’6″ Senior Thabit Gault with 15ppg along with 12rbpg. For Marion it is Freshman Jalen Blackmon with 21ppg.
