Late onslaught: Martinsville shoots 68 percent in second half to pull away from Terre Haute North

TERRE HAUTE — Martinsville shot 68 percent from the field in the second half Monday night to defeat Terre Haute North in a rescheduled boys high school basketball game 64-38.

The Artesians led most of the way but trailed at halftime 23-22. They were 10 of 26 in the first 16 minutes and North was good on 8 of 23 shots.

Martinsville fired in 8 of 13 shots with one 3-pointer in the third period and held a 40-32 lead going into the final quarter.

The Artesians scored the first seven points of the fourth frame to go up 47-32 and had a 55-34 lead with just under five minutes left in the contest.

The winners were good on 9 of 12 shots in the last quarter with four treys and shot 57 percent for the game, making 27 of 47 shots including 7 of 13 from trey range.

North was 14 of 41 with four 3-pointers.

Martinsville had three players in double digits. Troy Spears led the way with 24, getting 12 in the first quarter and connecting on 10 of 20 shots, making 4 of 6 3-pointers.

Aaron Tincher was 6 of 10 from the field and scored 14 points and Keegan Northern was 5 of 8 and racked up 12 points in addition to grabbing a game-high nine rebounds.

C.J. Brown and Charlie Aimone each had nine points for the Patriots and Kobi Riley had eight. Brown was 4 of 5 from the field while Aimone had six boards and Riley five.

Martinsville is 8-3 and was coming off a victory at Bloomington North.

“That was a nice win for us. We told the kids we could not let down and would have to play hard against Terre Haute North because coach [Todd] Woelfle would have his team ready to play and they were. We played pretty well the second half.

“I think our transition defense was a big factor in the second half,” said Martinsville coach Kip Staggs.

Staggs is in his first year as the coach at Martinsville. His first job was as a volunteer assistant at Terre Haute South under Pat Rady, who was in the crowd for the action.

Staggs' team has Bloomington South next on the schedule, playing J.R. Holmes' Panthers on the road on Friday. North will be at Bedford North Lawrence on Saturday.

North won the junior varsity game in overtime 53-46. The Patriots rallied from an eight-point deficit to force the extra session as A.J. Smith hit two free throws in the final seconds for a 40-40 tie. Casius Bell had 24 points and Smith added 13 for North.
