Batesville outshoots Indians, 64-55

ANDERSON — In a game with many factors coming into play as it unfolded, the biggest clearly was shooting.

Batesville had more of it than Anderson and came away with a 64-55 victory Saturday night.

The seventh-ranked Class 3A Bulldogs hit 24 of 42 attempts from the field while the home Tribe could only net 22 field goals despite getting 14 more shots.

Despite giving up size in nearly every matchup on the floor, the Indians won the rebound battle 36-28, which was an indication of Anderson outworking Batesville for much of the contest.

AHS sophomore Kobe Clay had nine rebounds to go with his 14 points. Kenya Wilkerson had a game-high 18 points and had six rebounds, all on the offensive end. The Bulldogs had just three offensive boards. Part of that was due to the visitors’ strong shooting performance.

Batesville put five players in double figures, topped by 17 from junior Bryan Hoeing. None of the five hit less than half his shots.

The Bulldogs started the game shooting poorly, and Anderson led 13-6. But Batesville rallied to score seven of the period’s final nine points and trailed only 15-13 going into the second stanza.

Batesville missed just one shot in the second quarter and opened a 30-26 lead at intermission. The visitors scored the first seven points in the third quarter and appeared ready to seal the game away. Anderson had other plans.

The Indians came clawing back into the fray with Clay scoring 12 points over the final two quarters. With 4:22 left in the game, Anderson trailed just 47-43.

But the Bulldogs scored the next eight points, and the Indians never again got that close. The Tribe’s rally might have been even more dangerous had it not missed eight free throws in the second half.

AHS junior Aaron Karr rounded out three Indians in double figures with 11 points.

Batesville moves to 4-1, and Anderson drops to 1-3. The Indians host Logansport for their North Central Conference opener Friday.
