Coaches’ quotes — Ridge on the Braves: “We got everybody some minutes [against North Central]. We have three or four guys who are capable of playing varsity who haven’t been able to get minutes.”

Boehler on the Vikings: “Friday night [at Northview] we made a lot of fundamental mistakes, but we came back Saturday [at South Knox] and responded really well.”

Ridge on the Vikings: “Coach Boehler’s got those guys playing well, and they always seem to hit a lot of 3s against us. The Jim Mann Green Dome is always a tough place to play.”

Boehler on the Braves: “They’re a good basketball team. Turner is averaging close to 30 [points per game] and they’ve surrounded him with a nice group of kids who are very complementary. Kevaris Gregory is one of the best shooters around. We really struggled with them at the jamboree … I just hope we play the way we’re capable of playing.”

Fleetwood on the Eagles: “We’re a young team and I feel really good about it. We had one loss by three points to Waldron [unbeaten] and one by two points to Northview. They are very coachable guys who should get better every time we play.”

Boehler on the Eagles: “They have two lettermen back who are both really good, and coach Fleetwood does a great job. It’s another conference game on the second night of a doubleheader, so it will be tough for us.”

Fleetwood on the Vikings: “They hvae a nice team, as usual. [Boehler] does a good job. They’re a little young too, so I think it will be a good game.”

Adams on the Panthers: “We’re very, very young. We have a lot of nice young kids, but we have a lot to learn. I like our effort and how we’re approaching [the season], but we’ve got to grow up in a hurry.”

Ridge on the Panthers: “They’re looking pretty good … athletic. They’re a little young, but so are we. They won at Vincennes, and that’s never easy.”

Adams on the Braves: “We’ve got to be ready to play. With a [Southern Indiana Athletic Conference] game on Friday, we’ll have to get ready [for South] in a hurry.”

 

The action — The Terre Haute North Patriots (3-2) will visit the Mooresville Pioneers (1-2) tonight and visit the Class 4A No. 5-ranked Evansville Harrison Warriors (4-0) on Saturday night.

The times — Varsity tipoffs are slated for about 7:30 tonight and 8 EST on Saturday.

The airwaves — None planned in the Wabash Valley.

The coaches — Todd Woelfle is 66-39 in his fifth season in charge at Terre Haute North. Bob Carter is 97-98 in his 10th year at Mooresville and 123-117 in his 12th year overall. Bryan Speer is 78-38 in his sixth year at Evansville Harrison.

Probable starting lineups — For North, 6-5 senior Austin Lewis at forward, 6-5 junior Calvin Blank at center, 5-11 senior Casey Vickers, 5-10 senior Nathan Jahn and 6-2 senior Steven Davis at guards, although there’s a chance 6-5 senior Patrick Hart may start at forward if Vickers does not recover from the flu by game time.

For Mooresville, Johnson is averaging about 26.3 ppg and 9.3 rpg. For Evansville Harrison, Stanley Duncan is tallying 17.3 ppg, Ernie Duncan is at 14.8 ppg and 8 assists per game. Everett Duncan is at 13.8 ppg and Scott averages 10 rebounds per outing.

Injury report — Regulars for all three teams appear elatively healthy, although North’s Jahn and Vickers have been hampered by the flu this week.

Recent games — Last weekend, North lost at home to Ben Davis 52-36 and won at home over Bloomington South 57-43. At the same time, Mooresville was losing at Decatur Central 58-57 and losing at home to Speedway 56-46. Last Friday, Evansville Harrison won at home over Castle 66-64.

Last meetings — On March 3, 2012, North defeated Mooresville 80-63 to win the Class 4A Northview Sectional championship. On Dec. 17, 2011, North won at home over Evansville Harrison 75-50.

Coaches’ quotes — Woelfle on his squad: “I was very pleased with the way we rebounded offensively after a tough night against Ben Davis to come back and play well against a quality Bloomington South team.”

Woelfle on playing the Pioneers: “Mooresville has one really good player [Johnson] and a lot of guys around him who understand their roles. Coach Carter puts him in a position to be successful … and they always play hard.”

Woelfle on playing the Warriors: “Evansville Harrison is one of the top-ranked teams in the state and it’s well-deserved. They’re talented at every position. They’re well-coached and they’re explosive on the offensive end. It’ll be a big challenge for us to go on the road back-to-back nights and we’re looking for consistent play on both ends of the floor.”

Carter on his squad: “We’re just young. We lost seven seniors from last season. Four out of our top six guys are sophomores. As a coach, I think we’re ahead of where I thought we’d be. We’ve played good teams so far. We’ve been able to compete. We’ve been right there in every game.”

Carter on playing the Patriots: “I think they’ve got 10 seniors on their roster. North’s just really good. They’re well-coached and they execute so well. They’re going to be bigger and stronger than us. We’re going to have to outshoot them and keep our turnovers down.”

Speer on his squad: “We’ve played a tough schedule [consisting of Jasper, New Albany, Evansville Central and Castle so far]. We’ve played very well in stretches. But we’re going to have to continue to improve and start to execute a lot better, with the games we have ahead of us.”

Speer on playing the Patriots: “They’re always very well-coached, very prepared. You look at a guy like Calvin Blank. He’s a Division I athlete [heading to Ball State to play football next season]. … Every time I watch them, it seems like they’re getting better each night. They are a good team. We certainly will have our hands full Saturday night.”

  • Redneck Quaker: A young lady of the outdoors

    Where do I start to tell you about this 10-year-old outdoor lady? Let’s start with her own words from a nice letter she wrote.

    “My name is Lilly Hutchison and this year when I was nine and again hunting with my Papaw, Mike Burch, we got up way before daylight on opening morning of youth deer season. I was watching a 6-pointer for several minutes until a larger buck appeared and chased him off, but not giving me a shot at him. Papaw and I were preparing a place for our evening hunt when a couple of does came across the field right to us. I carefully placed my shot and she ran around 8 yards. That evening, we decided to go to our neighbors’ woods. On the way in, we saw a large buck watering in one of the few puddles in the creek. Papaw said we would wait nearby to see if he would come back. To our amazement, he did! I was fortunate to take this 10-pointer, 250-pound buck. I have had many great hunts with Papaw.”
