Indians close door on Berries in 80-68 win

ANDERSON — The door finally closed on an Anderson boys basketball victory here Friday night.

The Indians had been competitive with several good basketball teams this year and led early in most of them. But those games all slipped away and into the loss column for a young team.

But against the unbeaten Logansport Berries, those frustrations disappeared. Anderson held the North Central Conference visitors at bay and claimed an 80-68 victory to go 2-3 on the season.

The home team put four players in double figures but everyone on the team had a part to play at one time or another in a coming-of-age victory.

Kenya Wilkerson topped the Tribe with 17 points and it likely would have been more had he not been saddled twice with foul trouble that forced him to spend vital minutes on the bench.

In the fourth quarter no Anderson player contributed more than sophomore Kobe Clay. Going into the final eight minutes he had six points, but he scored eight more in the final frame. Even more critical were his 13 rebounds, seven of those coming on the offensive end.

Grant Bennett scored 15 points and FreSan Reese had 11.

On several occasions in the first half, Anderson stretched the margin to 20 points. The final time came at 41-21. The Indians held a 43-28 cushion after halftime after the Berries closed the half with a 7-2 spurt.

Anderson was still on top 58-46 going into the fourth quarter and Logansport never got much closer after that.

The Indians didn’t hold the ball in the fourth, but they picked their spots to attack, waiting until the Berries were in chase mode and they could use their superior quickness to attack the rim. When the shots didn’t fall, Clay cleaned up a lot of misses.

Four Logansport players scored all but four of their team’s points. Matt Jennings, a freshman, scored 19, followed by Carter Skaggs with 18 and Jalen Adaway with 17, six of those coming on slam dunks.

The Indians are back in action today at Zionsville. Tipoff for the junior varsity game is at 6:30 p.m.

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.
