BOYS BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Rockville wins Banks of Wabash Classic

ROCKVILLE — The Banks of the Wabash overflowed with a blue wave of Rockville ball defenders on Saturday night.

Riverton Parke was swept up in the tide.

Relentless Rox pressure was too much for the Panthers to overcome. A 20-3 second quarter, in which Riverton Parke had 11 turnovers, was the difference as Rockville cruised to a 66-33 in the championship game of the Banks of the Wabash Tournament.

Riverton Parke committed 24 turnovers overall against Rockville’s trapping defense. It’s nothing new for the Class A No. 2 Rox.

“That’s our calling card. We try to guard people and make it difficult by sustaining pressure throughout the game,” Rockville coach Dave Mahurin said. “We’re pretty good at it right now, but we’ve got a long way to go.”

Lane Mahurin led Rockville (4-0) with 20 points. Jordon McFall was 5 of 7 from 3-point range and chipped in 16 points. Gary Ulrich had 15.

Riverton Parke did a good job controlling tempo in the opening period. The Panthers were patient on offense and made Rockville work for shots. Rockville led 15-12 at the end of the period and it looked as though the Rox were going to get a title game challenge.

“I didn’t think we were sharp in the first quarter. We tried to perform instead of play. We’ve got so many people patting us on the back right now we forget that any team can beat us on any night,” Mahurin said.

Riverton Parke’s resistance subsided in a dominant Rockville second quarter. Mahurin scored the first five points of the quarter to give Rockville a 20-12 lead, but it was the Rox’ ball pressure that bothered Riverton Parke the most. Swarming traps and Rockville’s ability to force turnovers turned the game on its head. When the Panthers got the ball into a half-court situation, they couldn’t do much with it. Riverton Parke was 1 of 7 from the field in the period.

“We’ve played them five times in the last two years and it’s the exact same thing every single game. We freak out and start playing like chickens with our heads cut off,” Riverton Parke coach Charlie Martin said.

Mahurin had 16 points by halftime with two dunks accounting for part of the tally. Keiontre Wilkey, Nick Waltz and John Brown each had at least two steals by halftime as the Rox pushed their advantage to 35-15.

Riverton Parke (1-3) was led by Luther Mathas with eight points. Kole Sanders had seven.

“We got a win in the tournament. We’ve got a long season ahead of us. We’ll keep working hard,” Martin said.

North Vermillion (1-1) defeated Turkey Run 62-41 in the third place game. Brayden Woodard led the Falcons with 22 points and Jacob Earl added 18. Riley Sunderman paced the Warriors (0-3) with 17 points.

It’s called Terre Haute Boys & Girls Club Park now, but the venerable ballpark was the site of some classic high school baseball regional games in the 1970s when coach Don Jennings and Terre Haute North’s local dynasty fought off stiff challenges from the best the rest of the Wabash Valley had to offer.
