SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Since Logan Irwin was a young boy his father Rob knew he was going to be a good basketball player. What Rob didnâ€™t know, however, is just how good his son would be.
Logan joined the top scorers in the state after surpassing his 2,000th point Friday night in Whitkoâ€™s home game against North Miami. The sharp-shooterâ€™s 27 points lifted his career scoring to 2,015 and helped the Wildcats to a 85-62 win over the Warriors.
Loganâ€™s mom, Krista, said she felt the same as Rob â€” nervous.
CHURUBUSCO â€” The crowd in Churubusco, having just watched a Lady Eagle loss to Lakeland, watched its boys team return the favor to the Lakers in the second contest of the â€˜Busco-hosted double-header by a score of 47-44.
