Indians gouge Trojans down the middle

ANDERSON, Ind. — Anderson exposed New Castle’s soft underbelly and the end result was a North Central Conference victory for the Indians.

The Tribe used senior Armon Daniels to wield the knife and deal the fatal blow to the Trojans in an 73-67 victory. Daniels scored all 10 of his points in the fourth quarter as Anderson kept its foe behind it for most of the contest.

Ahead in the final period, often by just a basket, the Indians decided to play keep-away from New Castle’s 1-2-2 zone, and the 5-foot-8 sophomore Kyle Bumbalough made that somewhat easy.

“We were supposed to do that in the first quarter,” said AHS coach Joe Nadaline. “But we hit some 3s and it was like fool’s gold to us. That’s not our game.”

But in the fourth quarter, the Trojans had to bring the zone toward center court where the ball was being bandied about like a volleyball at a summer family picnic. When the Trojans came forward, the Indians sliced them up.

Daniels, who went the first three quarters without a shot, went into the paint and began hitting open, mid-range jumpers.

“The 3s we had hit opened up the middle,” said Daniels. “My teammates had hit those shots and in the fourth quarter I had my chance. That’s the thing about this team is that everybody can make plays when they need to.”

Nadaline was fine with him taking those huge shots. “Those 8- to 10-foot shots are his shots,” he said. “Armon and Tim (Boyd) did a good job of getting it inside.”

Kenya Wilkerson hit all four of his free throws in the final 90 seconds to keep the Trojans from getting the ball with a one-possession deficit.

The Trojans were on fire early from the outside, and nobody was warmer than sophomore Abe Haler. He hit all but one of his five 3-pointers in the second quarter as New Castle trimmed a 22-10 deficit to 36-34 at halftime.

“We didn’t play well defensively,” said Nadaline. “That’s the one disappointing thing about this game. We didn’t execute the game plan. We didn’t get through the screens aggressively enough.”

Anderson’s offensive balance plagued New Castle throughout the contest. The Indians had five players score in double figures. Jalen Beard topped the Tribe with 16 points. Tre Boyd and Chet Lemon scored 14 points apiece, Kenya Wilkerson added 11 to go with Daniels’ 10.

The Indians won the rebound battle 27-24 with Tre Boyd and Daniels each grabbing seven.

New Castle put four players in double figures. Korey Ryan had 18, Steven Bennett 16, Haler 15 and Kyle Goolsby 13. Goolsby topped the Trojans with eight rebounds.

The Indians (16-4) will finish the season next Thursday at home against Chatard. They ended their NCC run at 5-2. New Castle drops to 10-9.
