   WATERLOO — It doesn’t seem like much — a 15-foot shot. No one to block the shot, just a shooter and the ball.
   It might be known as the freebie in basketball but free throws weren’t a guarantee Friday night.
   The foul line proved costly on the road for Columbia City girls’ basketball. Going 5-for-16 at Northeast Hoosier Conference foe DeKalb, the Lady Eagles went 0-for-6 in the fourth quarter opening the door for the Lady Barons.

   To make the job even more difficult the Wildcats were without several regulars for the match. In the end, all the circumstances proved too much for the Wildcats as they fell by a 54-20 count.
