North drops defensive battle
Friday, February 20, 2015 7:01 PM
Defense wins championships is the old saying. Friday night at Charger gym, defense most definitely won the basketball game, as Tri West escaped Linden with a 48-36 Sagamore Athletic Conference victory.
Tri West (18-3, 6-1 SAC) came into the game averaging nearly 80 points a contest, and were held to just 48 on the evening.
"Defensively tonight, we were pretty darn good," North Montgomery coach Joel Grindle said. "I loved our effort and energy."

Tri-West too tough for Crawfordsville
Monday, February 16, 2015 5:11 PM
The Crawfordsville Athenians had a tall task Saturday afternoon when they entertained Class 3A, No. 8 Tri-West in a Sagamore Conference tilt. The Bruins used their speed and athleticism, and kept their Conference title hopes alive, as they defeated the Athenians 63-28.
Crawfordsville got off to a quick start holding a 6-4 advantage midway through the first quarter. However, that's when Tri-West turned up their defense. They would outscore the Athenians 11-2 the remainder of the quarter and hold a 15-8 lead after one.
Crawfordsville struggled to find offense over the next two quarters. They scored only six points combined in the second and third, shooting just 17 percent, on 3-18. The Bruins, on the other hand, shot 39 percent, 13-33, during the same stretch, and would outscore the Athenians 32-6 in the middle quarters.
The Athenians offense did play better in the fourth. However, Tri-West would win the quarter 16-14.
I'm proud of our effort," said Athenian coach David Pierce. "We wanted to hold them under 66, and we held them to 63."

Bruins too tough for Mounties
Friday, February 06, 2015 7:24 PM
NEW MARKET - Class 3A No. 7 Tri-West Bruins visited Southmont on Friday and were unkind guests, leaving the Mounties with an 89-36 loss.
Tri-West wasted no time getting to business. The Bruins opened the game on a 15-0 run and Southmont didn't score until there were less than two minutes left in the first quarter. At the end of one, Tri-West led 24-6 and the game was well out of reach.
"That is a very good Tri-West team. We knew that they were going to play aggressive defense and try to not stay on the defensive end very long," Southmont head coach Jon Sparks said. "I thought that we got back and played defense when we took shots, but the problem was we had too many turnovers (25).
Mounties face massive task
Wednesday, February 04, 2015 5:22 PM
NEW MARKET - The Southmont Mounties are banged up and on an eight-game skid. Things won't get any easier Friday when the Tri-West Bruins (13-1, 2-1 SAC) come to town.
The Mounties are without starters Jacob Budd and Heath Whalen, both of whom are out with injuries. Freshman sensation Cam Chadd has been ill and will likely be limited against the Class 3A No. 7 Bruins.
"Cam Chadd has been really weak and lost around 10 pounds so although he will play this week, he's been limited in practice and I don't expect him to play to usual level or minutes," Southmont head coach Jon Sparks said.
"Tri-West is a really good team. They have great players and great athletes that can score in bunches. Although (Trevor) Waite is one of the best, if not the best, players in the conference, they have plenty of other guys that can score in a variety of ways. So even if we could find a way to slow down Waite or even stop him they have so many other options that it will be tough to keep the score down."
The Bruins are averaging nearly 76 points a game this season and their only loss is to Class 3A No. 6 Danville. Sparks said that, for Southmont, it will be important to benefit from their shots.
