Sullivan downs WIC rival Northview

TERRE HAUTE — Sullivan prevailed in a battle of Western Indiana Conference rivals to take home the third-place trophy from the Pizza Hut Wabash Valley Classic for the second time in the past four years.

Coach Jeff Moore and the Golden Arrows have a 13-3 Pizza Hut record during that span, which includes a 2009 title and 2010 runner-up finish.

Sullivan held Northview to 29 percent shooting to pick up a 55-41 victory Monday. Point guard Brooks Weszely led the Arrows with 15 points, six assists and six steals.

“He had an all-around game,” Moore said. “He’s our leader and we kind of go how he goes. He’s tired, we ask him to do a lot. He’s the point man on our press and leads our offense.”

Golden Arrows guard Max Gregory hit a 15-foot jumper on the baseline with two seconds left in the first quarter, and they didn’t trail after that.

Weszely started the second quarter with a 3-pointer and Michael Hutchcraft made it a 7-0 Arrows’ run with a bucket in the paint.

Sullivan led just 18-13 at halftime though as both teams struggled shooting. Northview was 6-of-27, while Sullivan went 8-of-26.

The Arrows built their lead to 10 when Weszely stole the in-bounds pass and converted to make it 25-15 just 21⁄2 minutes into the second half.

Northview responded with a 8-0 run over the next three minutes. Travis Hakman got a rebound bucket, Jim Mace a 3-point play and Peter Tanoos a 3-point play.

Sullivan reserve Hunter King provided the biggest shots of the game, hitting a pair of 3-pointers in the span of 60 seconds to put Sullivan back ahead 10 at 33-23.

“Those were huge, that just kind of set the pace to get some separation,” Moore said.

In addition to leaving Sullivan open for a couple of big shots, Northview made 16 turnovers, a number that also bothered Northview coach Clint Weddle.

“We made a run and we were getting sporadic defensively … We dug ourselves a big hole and it’s hard to get out of,” Weddle said. “I wish we’d have taken a little bit better care of the basketball, that’s as big a deal as the shots.”

Northview had one more 7-0 run up its sleeve, but Sullivan knocked down free throws — they went 15-of-22 in the game — to preserve the win.

Sullivan’s defense helped it make a strong run to the semifinals again.

“Throughout the tournament we were pretty good defensively. We broke down a few times, but our man-to-man defense was pretty good, our pressure was good,” Moore said.

The two teams meet Jan. 25 at Northview in what could be a crucial game for the WIC race.

“Us and them might be two of the better teams in the conference. Unless they or us mess up on the road somewhere, or at home, we might be playing for the conference,” Moore said. “They’re big and strong, they play hard and get after ya.”
