Argylls fall to Mississinewa

FAIRMOUNT — The Mississinewa Indians got a huge game from Caleb Swanner, and Madison-Grant could never recover from a 24-9 deficit on the way to a 63-50 home loss.

The Argylls (4-2, 2-1 Central Indiana Conference) had no answers for the trio of Swanner, Jay Butler and Seth McPheron. The three players from Ole Miss combined for 52 of their team’s 63 points.

Madison-Grant was able to cut the lead to eight points in the early part of the fourth quarter, but the Indians hit all six of their shots from the field in the final frame.

Aaron Patton kept his team in the game in the third quarter by knocking down all three of his shots — including one from long distance — for seven of his game-high 12 points.

The Argylls’ top three scorers of Matt Carey, Tanner Wise and Aaron Dreaden came into the game averaging a combined 33 points per contest, but were held to a total of 15 points.

Wise was held to zero points and two boards after being saddled with foul trouble most of the game. The Indians used numerous defenders on him under the basket which prevented him from being effective.

Mississinewa used an up-tempo pace for most of the game, and Swanner was able to knock down 8 of 12 shots from the field, including 5 of 7 from 3-point range. Butler and McPheron both shot 50 percent or better on the night.

The Argylls got a lift from Dakota Brooks, who came off the bench to nail his first three shots, all from long range, for his nine points in the game.

Madison-Grant will play Tri-Central tonight at home.
