You’ll like Linton ... in IHSAA state finals

Miners beat Speedway in overtime to advance to 2A title game

RICHMOND — It’s one thing to have a goal. It is something else to achieve it. Linton did Saturday afternoon. 

The Miners are in the Class 2A boys high school basketball state championship game. 

Led by Dess Fougerousse and Austin Karazsia and with key defensive play, steals, assists and big buckets from Bryant Jackson, Keith Fulk and Jackson Bohnert, the Miners slipped by the Speedway Sparkplugs 76-75 in overtime at Richmond’s Tieran Center. 

Karazsia, Jackson and Fougerousse combined to hit six free throws in the final 1:03 of the overtime period. 

After Speedway’s Corey Ross scored with seven seconds left, Fulk alertly held the ball out of bounds, then called timeout with 1.6 seconds on the clock to avoid the five-second violation and lock up the Miners’ first-ever trip to the state championship game. 

“I don’t think you win these games, I think you survive them,” Linton coach Joey Hart said with what little was left of his voice. “Going to the state. That’s amazing. It’s great. We’re still getting better, that’s the thing. We wanted to keep practicing because we feel we’re still getting better.” 

Fougerousse led all scorers with 33 points and seven assists, followed by Karazsia with 28 points and a game-high 14 rebounds. 

“We have 6-8 [Karazsia] and 6-5 [Fougerousse] and they’re crazy basketball players. They’re just really good and we got to just keep getting them the ball so they can keep scoring for us and getting and-ones,” Bohnert said. 

Speedway’s more balanced attack was led by Jordan Furlow with 20 points, Anthony Jones with 18, Justin Brent with 17 and Austin Anglea with 11. 

“The biggest thing is we had to figure out how to defend [Furlow] even off [missed] free throws. Furlow is an amazing player, but that’s not to discount Jones or Brent. Furlow is something else,” Hart said.
