Frustrated Arabians whip Yorktown

PH vents week’s worth of troubles on Tigers

PENDLETON, Ind. — Somebody had to pay for all the suffering the Pendleton Heights basketball team went through this week, and the Yorktown Tigers were the recipient of their frustration for the last seven days.

The Arabians scored 24 points in the first quarter and thrashed the Tigers 68-31 in a Hoosier Heritage Conference contest Friday night.

“There was some frustration that came out,” said Pendleton Heights coach Brian Hahn, whose team scored just eight points in the second half of a loss last week at Muncie South. “There was some expelling of some demons. The kids were disappointed in how we played in the second half (last weekend).”

After Yorktown recorded the first bucket, Pendleton Heights went on a 33-1 run over the next 12 minutes to make the rest of the contest insignificant. Pendleton Heights bracketed runs of 12-0 and 21-0 around a free throw by Yorktown. The Arabians had as many 3-pointers (nine) in the first half as the Tigers did points.

Pendleton Heights shot 71 percent in the first half, hitting 15 of 21 shots, including 9-of-12 from behind the arc. The Arabians finished at 61 percent shooting for the game, including 11-of-19 from 3-point range.

“Obviously, in the first half we played really well,” said Hahn, whose team led 41-9 at the break. “We came out with focus, and our defense fueled our offense. We had good ball movement, and guys were stepping up and making shots.”

Brogan Gary led the Arabians with 21 points, six assists, three steals and two rebounds, hitting 8 of 10 field goals, including four 3-pointers. Gary had 13 points in the first half, including a banked 3-pointer to cap off the scoring in the first quarter and give Pendleton Heights a 24-3 lead.

“It was great to see Brogan make some shots,” Hahn said. “He scored 21 points on only 10 shot attempts.”

Sean McDermott had 16 points, three assists and two rebounds, and Kurt Talbert added 13 points, five rebounds and five steals. Levi Buck was also in double figures with 11 points and three assists — all in the first half.

Yorktown finished at 35 percent shooting, including 3-of-12 in the first half. They also had 18 turnovers, which resulted in 24 points for the Arabians.

“We defended well in the first half,” said Hahn. “We handled the ball well and had only eight turnovers in the game.”

Pendleton Heights (9-7, 5-2 HHC) hosts Muncie Central tonight at 8 p.m.
