WARSAW — Columbia City boys basketball stand-out Drew Benedict scored 27 points for the second game in a row, leading the 2-0 Eagles to a 59-49 victory over Warsaw Saturday.

Another jump-shot by Coverstone, two 3-pointers by Benedict, six first-quarter points by Hinen and a buzzer-beater by Daniel Woll gave the Eagles a 19-12 advantage in the opening period.

The Eagles went into the locker room at halftime with a 36-25 advantage.

Benedict scored his seventh and final 3-pointer with 4:57 left in the game.

The Eagles are back in action Friday night, hosting Northfield.
