Logansport Ind Thursday Berry Bowl blowouts Logansport sprints past Pioneer 8150 BV CHRIS MAGKINDER PharosTribune sportswriter It happened so quick One minute the game started the next Pioneer coach David McWherter called a timeout The timeout which came into the game didnt help slow down the Logans port boys basketball team Wednesday evening The Berries cruised to an 8150 victory over Pioneer in the opening round of the Cass County Invitational at the Berry Bowl Logansport now will take on Peru for the championship at 8 Saturday while Pioneer will battle with Caston in the consolation game at 6 After the game McWherter told Lo gansport coach Al Rhodes youre going to have a real good The way the Berries played Wednes day that looks to be true And there was nt anyone more excited about that than Rhodes For our first game we played very ef he said Our starting five this is their third year on varsity We know what they can do Were just waiting to see who can do what off the bench Tonight we saw some good There were good things all over for the Berries Ten different players scored in the game five were in double fig ures Logansport also dominated the glass outrebouding Pioneer 3120 Final ly Logansport was able to run its fast break offense to perfection getting most of its points off turnovers Just 71 seconds into the game the Berries had a 70 lead as many fans had nt arrived at the gameyeL By the time it was six oclock the scheduled game time Logansport held a 165 lead and would never let Pioneer make it a game Obviously turnovers are a huge prob lem for McWherter said It was one of our weaknesses last year and were trying to work on that Zach Dietrich had a monster game for the Berries scoring 10 hard earned points in the paint and grabbing 12 rebounds Its definitely a goal I want to get to every Dietrich said of a doubledouble The ball was just falling my way a lot today and the shots were Dietrichs ability to be a force in the paint al lowed the Berries to have a solid insideout side game that is when they werent on the fast break Guard David Tribbett was one of the beneficiaries scoring 11 points includ ing three firstquarter triples Victor scored agamehigh 17 points and Kory Rombold added 12 Kevin Smith was the other player in double figures for the Berries 10 with 10 points Taylor Farrer led Pioneer with 14 points all coming in the fourth quarter including three triples Matt Gates added 11 points and Justin Ruff dropped in eight The Panthers 01 drained eight three pointers on the night And that in an evening that was overall disappointing was one of two things McWherter said his team would take out of the game Positively we are getting experience playing a very good team and getting to see what level we need to be at to be a pretty good he

opening round of the Cass County Invitational By GHRIS MACXJNDER PharosTribune sportswriter The Caston boys basketball team didnt have the start to the season it had imagined Going against a tough Peru squad the Comets were flustered offensively Wednesday and fell 6329 in the open ing round of the Cass County Invita tional at the Berry Bowl We got absolutely manhandled physically and said frustrat ed Comets coach Ryan Bales after the game We came out and we were flat f have no reason Despite being bother on the offen sive end because Peru often trapped the ball handler with a double team Caston had plenty of shot attempts The problem was most of them werent easy The Comets shot just 21 percent from the field and rarely got an offen sive rebound as Peru crashed the glass after nearly every shot to negate sec ond chance opportunities Defensively Peru 10 seemed to be more energized rarely letting any Cas ton player drive the lane and contest ing every bounce pass Still Peru Thompson was nt very thrilled with the performance Quite honestly I wasnt pleased with our Thompson said We dou bleteamed the ball which didnt want to and that allowed them to get some open looks We played better de fense when we went Both teams started the game stow and Caston held early leads of 20 and 42 With left in the first quarter the game was knotted at six That was where Peru began to pull away Tigers star Cameron Wobten a 6 used his athleticism to get a steal and hit a pullup jumper and teammate Chris Maynard hit a triple sunk a free throw to give Peru a 136 lead to end the quarter There were two times in the game where Caston looked like it would make a serious run The first came at the start of the second quarter The Comets buckled down on defense and handful of Peru turnovers In fact they held the Tigers off the Scoreboard for the first of the second quar ter Unfortunately for Caston it scored only two points in that span Midway through the third Caston made its fi nal charge After a layup by Jacob Briscoe gave Peru a 3416 lead Caston forced some turnovers and got some fastbreak layups The result was four quick points that forced Peru to take a time out Another turnover out of the timeout led to another Caston bucket cutting deficit to 3422 But it was all the comeback Caston had left as Peru pulled away after that We were just able to wear them Thompson said They are go ing to cause a lot of teams problems later in the Forward Lucas Powlan scored nine points to lead Caston while point guard Dustin Swartzel added eight Wooten led Peru with 13 points in cluding a monstrous twohanded slam in the third quarter Brad Smith added 11 while Quinn Saine chipped in nine all threepointers Caston will take on Pioneer in the Cass County Invitational
