PH boys clamp down on Rebels in win

PENDLETON — Pendleton Heights tightened an already formidable defense in the second half and limited Muncie South to just one field goal over the final 16 minutes in a 66-31 win here Saturday night.

For the game, the Rebels hit just 10 of 48 from the field for 21 percent, but in the second half they netgted just 1-of-19 shots for 5 percent.

"I thought we did a much better job of executing the game plan in the second half defensively," said Arabians coach Brian Hahn. "Obviously our defense was completely responsible for them hitting just one field goal, they had to miss shots. But we wanted to make them take tough shots and we did that."

Offensively, the Arabians had thre players score in double figures topped by center Caleb Hardy, who scored 20 and missed only one of his 11 shots.

"The defense was focused on Sean (McDermott) and Kenton (Dunham)," said Hardy. "They have been scoring a lot for us the last several games. My teammates set great screens and they got me the ball in good spots."

"Our guards were assertive and that helped them get the ball in to Caleb," said Hahn. "We set good ball screens as well."

McDermott scored 16 points, hitting 4-of-9 from 3-point range. Dunham pitched in 13.

The Arabians had 17 assists on 28 shots with Levi Buck accounting for seven of those and McDermott handing out five.

Shemar Isom, whose range was almost limitless, hit half of his 3-pointers on his way to a team-high 16 points. Nobody else for the Rebels scored more than seven.

"It was just what I said it would be (before the game)," said Muncie South coach Jeff Howard, formerly the head coach at Highland. "We can play with people for a while, but when (Pendleton Heights) shoots the ball like that and we have a few empty possessions, we get behind."
