SYRACUSE â Columbia City Head Basketball Coach Chris Benedict went into Tuesday nightâs game at Wawasee without having lost a game there since 2004.
That didnât change Tuesday, with the Eagles beating the Warriors 73-64 on their home court.
Last year Columbia City won two sectional games in Syracuse, the beginning of the teamâs semi-state appearance.
The game was filled with double-digit lead changes and the biggest point spread came in the final minute, after six Eagle free throws; neither team was going down without a fight.
âWe knew it was going to be a back-and-forth game,â Columbia City Head Coach Chris Benedict said. âOnce we got settled down we did a really nice job being patient on the offensive end and put the game away.â
Columbia City turned a five-point lead into nine, shooting 6-for-6 in free throws in the final minute of the game.
