CLARKSVILLE — Sophomore Casey Kaelin hit two free throws with four seconds left to lift Providence to a 53-51 victory over visiting Jeffersonville on Saturday night.

Kaelin finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Zack Johnson added nine points and Nick Sexton and Grant Williams eight apiece for the Pioneers (5-4), who visit Crawford County at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night.
