COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Favored IU Southeast escapes with KIAC first-round win

Grenadier women also move on to semifinals; Banet sends Red Wolves to New Albany

(Continued)

NEW ALBANY — BANET’S 3 LEADS TO HOMECOMING

Floyd Central graduate Cody Banet hit  3-pointer with 24.5 seconds remaining to give IU East a 69-68 victory over Brescia in the first round of the KIAC Tournament.

The shot gave the Red Wolves a spot in the KIAC semifinals in New Albany, just a few miles from Banet’s hometown of Floyds Knobs.

IU East will face will face Asbury at 2 p.m. in the tournament’s first semifinal on the campus of IU Southeast.

“There’s no doubt Cody loves taking big shots — and he’s good at it — and he made several big shots [on Saturday],” IU East coach Mark Hester said. “I can’t say enough about the way he stepped up.”

Sophomore guard Huston Clark scored 20 points and Banet — a junior guard — had a season-high 15. Freshman guard Vasha Davis added 13 off of the bench as IU East found just enough points to win on a day when its top scorer, Marcus Isaac, fouled out without scoring.

IUS WOMEN WIN AT BEREA

Ashmere Woods scored 19 points and 12 rebounds, and Heather Wheat had 12 ponts, four rebounds and four assists as the IU Southeast women also advanced to the KIAC semifinals with a 55-52 victory at Berea on Saturday.

IUS Southeast shot just 39 percent from the floor but it shot well enough in the first half (10-of-22) to take a 32-23 halftime advantage.

The four-time defending KIAC Tournament champion Grenadiers will host top-seed Park Point — a 54-44 winner over Carlow on Saturday — in Monday’s second semifinal at 8 p.m.
