Carroll gets first win at Elwood

ANDERSON — First-year coach Landon Carroll notched his first career victory on Tuesday night as the Elwood Panthers defeated Anderson Prep Academy 69-44.

Jared Bourff led the Panthers with 20 points, 14 rebounds, two assists and four steals, hitting 7-of-19 field goals, including three 3-pointers.

“He is a physical player and we can throw it inside to him on the blocks and he can shoot it as well,” said Carroll of his 6-foot-3 senior post player. “He’s that inside-outside guy for us and he played well for us and his leadership went to a new level.”

Anderson Prep coach Corey Scott also had high praise for Bourff. “We knew he was good and he hit a few shots and then we lost him.”

Tracey Ganow gave Bourff plenty of support inside, finishing with 18 points and four rebounds off the bench on 8-of-12 shooting. London Leavell was also in double figures with 14 points, seven rebounds, five assists and two steals.

Dakin Updegraff added seven points, six rebounds, two assists, two steals and Jordan Arehart chipped in with four points, four rebounds, three assists and three steals.

“The energy was much better for us tonight,” said Carroll. “For two and a half weeks we didn’t have a good deal of energy in practice.”

Anderson Prep was led by Noah Long with 23 points and four rebounds on 8-of-13 field goals, including three 3-pointers. Jonathon Barclay was also in double figures with 11 points, five assist and three steals. No other player had more than four points for the Jets.

“I thought we played okay in the first half and we did some things well,” said Scott, whose team trailed just 31-24 at the half. “The second half, when we executed the offense things went well.”

The third quarter was where the Jets crashed and burned. Elwood outscored Anderson Prep 20-7 in the period and forced four turnovers, which led to seven points. They also outscored the Jets 14-2 in the paint.

“We didn’t execute in the third quarter and that was our biggest downfall,” said Scott. “When we executed for Noah that really opened things up. We didn’t get him off enough screens. We have to execute and do the things we work on in practice.”

Anderson Prep (0-3) travels to Sheridan on Friday at 7:30 p.m., and Elwood (1-1) travels to Daleville on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
