NEW CASTLE â€” Despite a tough one-point loss to host New Castle, No. 11 Bellmont walked away with the tourney hardware Saturday, winning the eight-team New Castle Invitational with a little help from New Palestine.
"We were disappointed with the loss to New Castle, but they had several guys ranked and those kids performed really well," lauded Bellmont coach Brent Faurote on the 38-37 loss to the Trojans.
MONROE—History was made at Adams Central on Saturday night at 5:40 of the third quarter as the Flying Jets played Parkway's Panthers.
Junior Kyle Fawcett inbounded a lob to fellow 11th grader Maverick Baumer, who produced a dramatic throwdown for the first inbounds dunk since the school began basketball in the late 1940s.
The slam brought much of the home crowd to its feet and, while not decisive in the Jets' eventual 63-55 victory, showed that a different day has dawned for the sport at AC.
