NEW KNOXVILLE — It all came down to free throws as Minster defeated New Knoxville 56-52 in a Midwest Athletic Conference contest on Friday night.
“Going on the road, you just have to make sure that you stay aggressive, even though it wasn’t pretty,” said Minster head coach Mike Lee. “Hats off to their team as well. I thought both teams competed hard.”
After trailing by a point with 1:44 left in the game, Minster hit 8-of-10 free throws in the final 1:02 for the victory.
ST. MARYS — Ottawa-Glandorf emerged with a 58-54 win over the St. Marys boys basketball team on Friday night in a ragged, physical game that featured 65 combined free throws — 28 of which were missed — and the constant interrupting trill of whistles.
The Titans went on a 6-0 run late in the fourth quarter to build a big enough cushion to overcome an awful night at the free throw line and from the floor. O-G won for the fifth time in their last six outings.
NEW BREMEN — A 7-0 run midway through the third quarter got the Versailles Tigers some space. They went on to defeat the New Bremen Cardinals 67-62 Friday night in a key MAC contest played at New Bremen.
“I thought it was a product of them being more aggressive in the second half,” Cardinals head coach Adam Dougherty said. “Early in the second half they were more aggressive than we were. (Mitch) Campbell got the ball and went to work.”
