Bulldogs find zone, rout Triton Central

LAPEL — “In the zone” is a term commonly used for a player that seems to do everything right during the course of a game. Saturday night the whole Lapel boys basketball team was in the zone as it crushed Indiana Crossroads Conference foe Triton Central 70-29.

The Bulldogs (10-5, 2-1 ICC) surged to a quick 7-0 lead to start the game behind the play of Bailey Partington and Mitchell Richardson, who scored six points apiece.

Lapel played stifling defense, never letting the Tigers (8-5, 0-3) score double figures in any quarter.

“We’ve had lapses the last two or three games defensively so we’ve really been talking it up a lot and obviously working on it a lot in practice,” said Bulldogs coach Jimmie Howell. “I told them in there (the locker room), offensively and defensively I think we’ve got almost everybody buying in and believing right now.”

Sophomore Kamron Herrington was the epitome of “in the zone” in the second quarter. He drilled 5 of 7 from the field with three of those coming from beyond the arc for 13 of his game-high 24 points.

Mitchell Richardson was the only other double-figure scorer for Lapel with 17 points in only three quarters of play. Howell went to the bench early and often in the blowout win.

Partington doesn’t always show up on the stat page as a star on this team chock full of offensive firepower, but his coach takes notice of what he does. He had six of his eight points in the first quarter and sparked his team with his hustle around the rim.

“He’s solid in every way,” said the Bulldogs coach. “He’s great defensively, he’s leading us in rebounding. He doesn’t care if he scores. Scores when he can. He does an outstanding job. He’s just a great leader and role model.”

Partington also led his team with six rebounds, helping lead Lapel to a 34-21 rebounding advantage over Triton Central.

The Tigers didn’t have any player score more than Serge Slaughter’s seven points. He also led his team with five rebounds.
