SOUTH WHITLEY â€” The Wildcat basketball team played the final five minutes only putting two points on the scoreboard Friday night, falling to Northwood (9-11) 45-39.
With a 33-30 lead to start the fourth quarter, Whitko was nearly scoreless while the Panthers tacked on 15 points in the last eight minutes to take the win.
The score doesnâ€™t adequately display the seven lead changes and three-point margins throughout much of the game.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” The seniors â€” along with the rest of the Columbia City basketball team â€” are heading into the tourney having finished their regular season with a win.
The Eagles beat the visiting Fort Wayne Concordia 64-55 on senior night, the final regular season contest of the season for the twelfth graders.
â€śThose guys are all amazing,â€ť said junior Derek Hinen. â€śWe have a special bond with each one of those guys; in a system like Columbia Cityâ€™s I think you get to know each other better than a lot of other systemâ€™s in the state.â€ť
