Ramblin Reck: Cloverdale riding 10-game winning streak

TERRE HAUTE — Illinois high school boys basketball teams commenced postseason play Monday night and teams in Indiana are set to close out the regular season.

Two of the teams with top marks in the area are Cloverdale and Clay City and they met last Saturday to cap a good week of basketball.

The Clovers bested the Eels 82-75 at Cloverdale to extend their winning streak to 10 games since losing their only game to Tri-West and will take an 18-1 mark into their final game of the season with Rockville.

Coach Pat Rady’s team defeated Greenwood Christian and Eminence earlier in the week.

The Eels took a seven-game winning streak into Saturday’s clash after defeating Linton to clinch a share of the SouthWestern Indiana Athletic Conference titles and beating county rival Northview in overtime. They will take a 14-6 mark into their season finale with Riverton Parke.

Linton and Sullivan are two other teams with top records and drew each other in the North Knox Class 2A Sectional.

West Vigo plays its final game of the season at Linton tonight. The Miners are 14-5 and also have games with Northview and White River Valley left on the schedule.

Sullivan is 15-5 and has a game with South Vermillion on the schedule.

• Tom-Cattin’ It — It makes you wonder about the International Olympic Committee adding “extreme sports” to the Winter Olympics schedule and thinking sports such as baseball and softball are not good enough for the Summer Games.

By the way, NBC is being given high marks for its coverage of the action.

• Boston College was a 16-point underdog last week going into its game with Syracuse and beat the Orangemen.

• Carmel recently won its 28th consecutive title in girls swimming. The national mark is 29, held by a California team.

• Leeann Knight and Nic Yocum of Northview have signed to compete in college track at St. Joseph’s College.

• Jason Collins made National Basketball Association history Sunday in Los Angeles. He earlier became the first athlete to admit to being openly gay in the major pro sports teams and played about 10 minutes for Brooklyn against the Lakers after signing a 10-day contract — he had been unsigned up to that point since making his statement.

• Two former Indiana State standouts just missed making the U.S. team for the World Indoor Championship in track.

Kylie Hutson was third in the pole vault, clearing 15-feet-3 1/2 inches, and Felisha Johnson was third in the shot put with a 58-10 1/4 heave.

• Terre Haute North grad Josh Phegley and Tyler Flowers are the two main candidates to be the starting catcher for the Chicago White Sox.

• DePauw’s women’s basketball team lost to Ohio Wesleyan 65-64 on Saturday in a road game, ending three streaks: 30 in a row on the road, 77 in a row in regular-season games and 55 in a row in the North Coast Atlantic Conference.

• The Prestwick Course at Avon has been named the 2014 Indiana course of the year by the National Golf Course Owners Association.
