Indians take care of business

When it comes to the county tournament, its anyone’s game. Game 1 of the tournament was the Mississinewa Indians against the Oak Hill Golden Eagles. Indians knew they had to win to advance and also go 2-0 against the Golden Eagles. Ole Miss beat Oak Hill about 2 weeks ago. The Indians did go 2-0 by beating Oak Hill 65-53 in the morning session. The long day goes on and the Indians waited to see who they will play in the championship. Game 2 featured the Eastbrook Panthers and the Madison-Grant Argylles. The ball game went back and forth, Madison-Grant went on top of the scoreboard with a final score of 60-53. After the second game, Ole Miss and Madison-Grant took a break before the championship game. Then it was time that both teams take Fredenberger Court for The Championship. “The tip is up and controlled by the Indians” it was on from there. At the half, Indians were up 38-31 with Swanner, McClung, and Skeens each with 8 points at the half. At the end of the third quarter, the Indians only let MG score 8 points. Mississinewa took the victory 69-62. Landen Swanner lead the Indians with 21 points.

Congratulations to Coach Reed for getting his first Grant 4 win as a head coach and the rest of the Indians on a well-deserved win.

Indians go 3 straight

Coach Reed and the Indians packed their bags and hopped on I-69 to travel to Yorktown High School to take on the Tigers. When the Indians were up 9 at the end of the 1st quarter, Indians knew two things, win and go on a three-game winning streak. Being up 22-16 at the end of the half , then at the end of three up 40-26. I’ve said this all season when the team gets going no one is stopping them “they go on cruise control”. No player stats were reported. Final score Mississinewa 64 Yorktown 39

Now the team will go to practice on Fredenberger Court for the rest of the week and get ready to play a rival, the Oak Hill Golden Eagles in the 2018 Grant 4 tournament at Mississinewa on Saturday. Indians vs Golden Eagles will tip off at 10 am. A look to last time the Indians played Oak Hill, Indians shut out the Golden Eagles 69-60. Indians were lead by Tai McClung with 16, Colin Yoder 15 and Anthony Horton added 11 points.
