RAMBLIN’ RECK: Clay City, Rockville, Linton remain alive

TERRE HAUTE — Another busy week of Indiana boys basketball sectional action is history, and three teams from the area now are preparing for regional games on Saturday.

Clay City, Rockville and Linton are the teams seeking additional postseason victories.

Clay City takes a 15-8 record into its game with Jac-Cen-Del in the Class A Martinsville Regional.

Rockville is the only unbeaten team left in the state, and the Rox take on Lafayette Central Catholic in the Class A Frankfort Regional.

Linton is celebrating its first sectional title in 31 years, and the Miners face Clarksville in the Class 2A Southridge Regional.

Hopefully, all of the teams will win those games and go for regional titles at night.

In Illinois, Oblong and Robinson were the last teams from the area to lose last week. The Maroons dropped a hard-fought two-point decision to Breese Central, which lost to Teutopolis 58-53 in two overtimes in the Greenville 2A Sectional.

Oblong lost to Nokomis 68-46 in the final game of the Altamont Class A Sectional.

We again spent the weekend in Greene County, covering the White River Valley Class A Sectional.

This tournament is one of the few in the state that was not drastically altered when class basketball began in Indiana.

Sectional teams come from Greene County or from nearby areas and, in most cases, have met during the regular season.

The biggest changes from 50 years ago are that Jasonville, Midland and Coalmont have become Shakamak; Solsberry has become Eastern Greene, and Worthington, Switz City Central and L&M have become WRV.

And, of course, Linton and Bloomfield now compete at Class 2A sites. We understand Bloomfield may return to WRV next year due to new enrollment figures released last month.

Crowds were excellent for Friday and Saturday games even though some fans went to North Knox to watch Linton and Sullivan in action.

Clay City won two hard-fought games to win and hopes to keep it going this week.
