66 (wow!) to 19 (ugh!)?

January 30, 2013

    Spring-like conditions rolled into the Decatur area and Indiana on Tuesday, but it won't last long. In fact, temperatures already are heading down ... way down.
    The city weather station recorded a high of 66 degrees on Tuesday — double the normal high of 33 degrees for this area on January 29. But the National Weather Service says tonight's low could dip all the way to 19, close to the norm of 17 for the date. And Thursday's high may reach only the low 20s!

Cadets erase 17-point Bellmont lead; cruise to 71-47 win over Braves

January 30, 2013

    A nearly flawless first 10 minutes of the game Tuesday night at the Teepee found the Bellmont Braves with a huge 17-point lead over a shell-shocked Concordia Cadet team at 27-10 with 6:55 to play.
    Unfortunately, however, as the Braves found out, basketball is not a 10-minute game at the varsity level but is a 32-minute affair and the Cadets righted their ship enroute to a 71-47 decision over the Braves in non-conference action.
    Bellmont could do virtually no wrong in the opening stanza.
