Tribe, Arabians ready for rivalry rematch


He underwent arthroscopic surgery a few weeks ago, and all the Indians can do now is wait for their leading scorer to heal.

"We won't know whether he's going to play or not until probably Wednesday morning," Nadaline said. "We're pressing on like we normally would. But you hope, for his sake, he can get out there."

Pendleton Heights has had health issues of its own, with leading scorer Sean McDermott missing most of the first half of the season recovering from a severe staph infection and center Caleb Hardy returning for the regular-season finale after missing four games with a foot injury.

The Arabians enter the postseason with three straight losses, but Nadaline doesn't read much into that slump.

"That's not a reflection on how they're playing," he said. "It's a reflection on who they've played."

Pendleton Heights' losses came against Class 3A state title contender Guerin Catholic and Indianapolis powerhouses North Central and Lawrence North down the stretch.

Anderson is riding a two-game losing streak of its own after suffering defensive lapses against New Castle and Brebeuf. But Hahn expects to get the Tribe's best effort.

"Anderson's a very good team," he said. "Obviously, they dominated us in the county. We didn't play well, they played well. But they're a different team now, we're a different team now. Everything's different. To me, it's about who plays better and who's more prepared and focused come Wednesday night."

Class 4A Sectional 9 at New Castle Today -- Mount Vernon (9-13) vs. Richmond (19-2), 7 p.m. Wednesday -- Anderson (9-12) vs. Pendleton Heights (14-7), 6 p.m.; Connersville (13-9) vs. New Castle (8-12), 7:30 p.m. Friday -- Mount Vernon-Richmond winner vs. Greenfield-Central (5-17), 6 p.m.; Anderson-Pendleton Heights winner vs. Connersville-New Castle winner, 7:30 p.m. Saturday -- Championship, 7:30 p.m.

  • SPT - HB0725 - Colts Camp - 007 CB Darius Butler holds tight to No. 20 The number 20 has grown to mean something to Darius Butler. The former second-round pick was running out of chances when the Indianapolis Colts signed him during the 2012 season. Eleven starts and eight interceptions later, he’s ingrained as the team’s slot cornerback — working under the final season of a two-year, $4 million deal.
