Indians use 17-0 run to top Snider

ANDERSON, Ind. — For three quarters, the Anderson Indians looked like a tired and worn out team coming off a heartbreaking loss to North Central Conference rival Kokomo on Friday night.

Then with four minutes left in the game, the real Indians showed up and used a 17-0 run to defeat Fort Wayne Snider 71-63 on Saturday night.

“We were lethargic and had no energy and were lucky we hung in there and figured out a way to win,” said Anderson coach Joe Nadaline. “The week was geared to Kokomo. That’s our third double weekend in a row and we are worn out.”

Anderson trailed by as many as 10 points in the first half and 11 midway through the third period. The Indians were behind 60-54 with just under five minutes left when they made their run.

Chris Lemon then scored nine straight points, including a jumper with 2:30 left to give the Indians their first lead of the game at 61-60. Trey Boyd then scored the next six points as the duo combined for all 17 points in the decisive run. Snider finally ended the run with a free throw in the final seconds.

“We responded when we were down,” said Nadaline of the finish. “We went to a 2-3 matchup defense and I thought that changed things. We didn’t let them get in the lane, they missed some shots and we finally got some rebounds. Lemon was solid defensively and I thought (Fresan) Reese was good defensively in the second half.”

Boyd finished with a team-high 20 points and Lemon had 19 points, five assists and two steals. Jalin Beard added 16 points, four rebounds, two steals and Peyton Newsom chipped in with 13 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals off the bench.

“Peyton made some big shots,” said Nadaline of the senior, who hit three 3-pointers in the third quarter to keep the Indians within striking distance. “When he guards he is a complete player and I thought he did that tonight.”

Anderson finished at 48 percent shooting, including 62 in the second half.

The Indians also hit 7-of-16 from 3-point range while Snider was at 57 percent shooting and 5-of-14 from behind the arc.

The Indians had a 29-25 advantage on the boards, including 13-6 on the offensive glass. Anderson also had the edge in assists (16-10), turnovers (8-18), points off turnovers (29-14), second chance points (13-4) and steals (10-2).

“That’s when we play best when we get baskets off turnovers,” Nadaline said of the 29 points off turnovers. “We stuck with it and we were persistent. It was huge to get this game after last night.”

Anderson (13-3) will host North Central Conference foe Richmond next Friday at 7:30 p.m.
