H.S. BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Hayes’ 50 leads CAI past CAL in 4 OT, 83-82

No. 4 Providence improves to 10-0, Jeff girls fall at Castle



• Hot Castle downs Devils:
Castle won for the sixth time in seven games on Saturday, defeating Jeffersonville 60-38.

The Knights held Jeff to just 12 points in the first half to pull away for a 13-point advantage at intermission.

“Castle is a very good team and was just too much for us to handle tonight,” Red Devils coach Matt Pait said. “They played a great game and we struggled to compete with them most of the game.”

No Red Devils scored in double figures. Haley Vogen led the way with eight points, while Taylor Hines had seven, Taylor Davis six and Emily Gray five.

“We have to continue to work hard and get better every day to be able to play with teams like Castle,” Pait said.

Castle, which outscored Jeff 21-3 at the foul line, was led by Olivia Hunt, who finished with 13 points.

NEXT: Jeffersonville (5-8) hosts Louisville Eastern (9-3), Wednesday.

• Charlestown wins first MSC contest: After opening the season 2-7, Charlestown has won three of its last four games after Saturday’s 44-36 Mid-Southern Conference triumph over Brownstown Central.

The Pirates trailed 17-13 at halftime, but they were able to get their first league victory thanks to a 23-of-27 performance at the free throw line.

Katelyn Henning led Charlestown with 15 points and made all 10 of her foul shots. Megan Brooks added 11 points and six rebounds.

NEXT: Charlestown (5-8, 1-4 MSC) hosts Eastern (7-7, 1-3), Tuesday.

• Dragons stay in MSC hunt: Silver Creek stayed alive in its pursuit of the Mid-Southern Conference title with a 47-29 win at Salem on Saturday.

The Dragons are now 5-1 in the MSC, trailing Scottsburg by a half-game. They are tied with Austin, who they host on Saturday.

Silver Creek allowed the Lions to score just three first half field goals but led just 19-7 at the break.

“Defensively, we played really well today,” Dragons coach Scott Schoen said. “In the second half, we were really good offensively, but we didn’t execute early.”

The Dragons pulled away in the third quarter by outscoring Salem 14-5 for a 33-12 lead.

Alex Tinsley led Creek with 22 points. Although Emily Clayton was held to four points, Schoen said he learned a lot about his star on Saturday.

“Even though she scored only four points, she’s becoming a leader,” Schoen said of Clayton. “She made suggestions based on the flow of the game. I told her after the game I like that. It tells me that she’s not just playing, she’s thinking. What she does for us is so much more than scoring. She played a very well-rounded basketball game.”

Alex Davidson led Salem with 16 points.

NEXT: Silver Creek (11-4, 5-1 MSC) at Madison (11-2), Tuesday.

• Unbeaten Paoli beats Borden: Class 2A, No. 3 Paoli stayed unbeaten (9-0) with a 61-38 win at Borden on Saturday.

Stephanie Moore, Sophie Sears and Morgan Kingston combined for 36 of the Rams’ 61 points in the win.

“Sears is just an outstanding player the way she handles the ball and the way she sets everyone up,” Borden coach Terry Rademacher praised.

Natalie Ruedinger had a team-best 13 points for the Braves. Shelby Kirchgessner finished with nine and Abby Ellis added eight for Borden.

NEXT: Borden (6-5) at Orleans (6-5.), Thursday.
