Braves get rematch with Col. City; Jets/Stars set for battle in sectional

February 25, 2014

    The drawing for the 104th annual IHSAA boys basketball state tournament was held on Sunday featuring all three Adams County schools learning their post-season fate.
    The Bellmont Braves (5-13) will travel to the Norwell-hosted 3A sectional #23, while South Adams and Adams Central are on a collision course for the Stardome in Berne for class 2A's sectional #36.
    Bellmont will get another swing at NHC rival Columbia City (9-11) on Tuesday, March 4 in the second game (8 p.m.) just after Heritage and Norwell play.
    The Braves fell just short against the Eagles in early January on the road losing a 39-38 contest. Heritage (7-10) will handle the tall task of playing the sectional favorites in Norwell (15-5) a team they lost to 48-40 earlier this year.
    The winner of the Patriots/Knights contest will play Eastbrook (11-7) who earned the first bye, while the winner of Bellmont/Columbia City will face off with Mississinewa in the second semi-final on Friday. The championship is slated for Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
    In the 2A sectionals, the Jets and Stars are rid of Bishop Luers who moved to 3A in all sports but now have to entertain two new top-notch basketball programs as Woodlan moves down from 3A and Canterbury moves up to 2A in all sports this season.
    In the seven-team sectional hosted by South Adams, Eastside (12-7) will play Woodlan (13-6) on Tuesday, the team they just happen to end the regular season with on February 28.
    There will be two games on Wednesday with the first at 6 p.m. between Bluffton (7-11) and Canterbury (8-11). The Jets (10-8) and the Stars (2-15) will do battle in the second game (7:30 p.m.) immediately after renewing their county rivalry once again in the post-season.
    Churubusco (6-14) drew the only bye and will play the winner of Woodlan/Eastside, while the winner of the Tigers/Cavaliers will face off against either Central or South Adams in the other semi-final on Friday night. The championship is slated for 7 p.m. Saturday night.
