line. The Senior forward also managed to chip in a pair of assists, a pair of steals, and he blocked a pair of shots. The Falcons will start their Semi-state run with a Saturday matchup against Delta (18-9).
Junior Isaac Andrews of Wapahani (25-1) posted a double-double in their 73-50 Regional win against the Carroll Cougars (22-5) of Flora, Indiana. The 6-1 guard was strong at both ends of the floor, scoring 21 points, pulling down 11 rebounds, and finding teammates with assists on six occasions. He also buried three shots from deep and was 6-8 from the charity stripe. The Warriors lost their opening game of the season by a mere two points, but they have rattled off 25 straight wins since. Andrews will now help lead Wapahani against Lewis Cass (19-7) this Saturday.
Of our three winners, Jennings County Sophomore Carter Kent was the only one to play two games last week, as the Panthers (24-2) had to first take care of some Sectional business last Monday due to a postponement. In that Sectional Championship game, a 51-39 triumph over New Albany (11-14), Kent scored 22 points on 7-12 shooting, he was 4-8 from deep, and he was 4-5 on free tosses. He added a pair of rebounds and a pair of assists. Saturday, in their 64-40 win over Evansville F.J. Reitz (197), the Sophomore guard was again a standout. Kent put up 16 points on 6-10 shooting, including a solid 4-6 from outside. He also added three each in rebounds, assists, and steals to his stat line. Jennings County will return to action this Saturday with a big Semi-state matchup against Brownsburg (21-4).
