Lapel closes with win

INDIANAPOLIS — The Lapel boys basketball team closed out the regular season portion of its schedule with a 69-45 win over host Indianapolis Ritter on Wednesday night.

The Bulldogs played their fourth game in eight days, and the fatigue showed in their play. Lapel built an early lead then withstood a third-quarter rally by Ritter before settling down and wrapping up the win in the fourth quarter.

“We’re a tired team,” Lapel coach Jimmie Howell said. “Four games in eight days. We got up 15 or 16, mentally lost it, and they (Ritter) got back into it after halftime.”

The teams traded buckets, leads and turnovers early before Lapel put together a 12-2 run to end the first quarter with a 19-11 lead. Lapel went 7-for-11 from the field in the first quarter while Ritter struggled, missing 15 of 19 attempts.

Brady Cherry scored seven of his game-high 19 points in the quarter.

Lapel was able to extend the lead in the second, as JonRoss Richardson came off of the bench to score eight points.

“He is playing better the last three or four games,” Howell said of the freshman forward. “Hopefully he’ll help us in the tournament.”

Lapel took a 38-26 lead in to the locker room, but Ritter made its run in the third as Lapel struggled with turnovers. The Bulldogs gave the ball up six times in the period, and Ritter cut the lead to 43-38 midway through.

Mitchell Richardson scored all nine of his points in the third, hitting 3 of 6 3-point attempts, including two late 3s to expand Lapel’s lead to 52-40 and end Ritter’s run. Noah Hendershot hit a late runner to give Lapel a 14-point lead going into the final frame.

Cherry was aggressive in the fourth, attacking the basket and scoring eight points as Lapel pulled away.

“Brady got to the bucket early, then we posted him up and got a lot of points inside,” Howell said. “He played strong and did a nice job.”

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.

The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
