McNutt leads M-G past Oak Hill

FAIRMOUNT — In a game that saw numerous lead changes and struggles to score, it was going to come down to who had the last basket that would determine the winner. Madison-Grant was that team as Trevor McNutt scored with 28 ticks left to give the Argylls a 39-38 home court victory Friday.

The Argylls (6-7, 3-3 Central Indiana Conference) stormed out to a 6-0 lead over the Eagles, but Oak Hill chipped away at the lead by going on an 11-0 run. By the end of the first eight minutes, both teams were knotted at 11-11.

Much like the first quarter, both teams struggled to find their offense in the second as each managed to score just eight points.

Madison-Grant got a huge performance in the third from McNutt, who hit 4-of-5 from the field and scored eight of his team's 13 points to give it a 32-31 lead heading into the final quarter.

The Argylls and Oak Hill combined to go 6-of-18 in the final eight minutes, and like the first two quarters, it was an even period with both scoring seven points. McNutt made the difference again by scoring his lone basket of the final stanza with 28 seconds to play.

The final basket put Madison-Grant up 39-38 and neither team scored again, which gave the home team a revenge win after losing 59-57 to the Eagles on Dec. 28.

McNutt led his team with 15 points.
