Nunn reaches 1,000 points as Lions hold off M-G

(Continued)

ANDERSON, Ind. —

"We closed the game tonight a little sloppy," Liberty Christian coach Jason Chappell said. "But that's to be expected when you play three games in four days."

The Lions completed a three-game sweep after beating Crispus Attucks on Friday night and Elwood on Saturday afternoon and have won four in a row overall.

Madison-Grant had a two-game winning streak snapped but saw four players reach double figures. Junior Tanner Wise — a 6-foot-9 center — led the way with 18 points, senior Matt Carey added 11 and junior Aaron Patton had 10 to join Dreaden.

But the star of the night was Liberty Christian's point guard. He finished 6-of-11 from the field and 8-of-10 at the free-throw line.

As he spoke after the game, Nunn held a game ball to commemorate his 1,000-point achievement. But his focus remained on the four banners at the other corner of the gym.

The Lions have won sectional championships in each of the past two seasons and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Class A tournament. The ultimate objective is a trip to Bankers Life Fieldhouse and a chance to play for a state title.

"It's the same goal this year," Nunn said. "But this time we plan to go all the way."
