Athenians lose halftime lead
Friday, February 06, 2015 7:22 PM
DOVER -- The first time Western Boone and Crawfordsville faced off this season, the Stars' Riggs Baxter was limited by foul trouble and the Athenians eked out a two-point win.
Baxter didn't get into foul trouble in the rematch, and it made all the difference. The Stars' senior scored 11 of game-high 21 points in the fourth quarter as Western Boone came-from-behind to beat Crawfordsville 60-57.
Crawfordsville jumped out to an 18-8 lead after a quarter and led by seven at the half.
Western Boone got within three at 33-30, but Crawfordsville responded with a 10-2 run to go up 11 points with 3:37 to play in the third quarter.
Trent Johnson had seven points in the run and finished with a team-high 17 points.
"He did a good job," Crawfordsville head coach David Pierce said. "For a sophomore to step up and want to take those shots is big. It was a big conference game on the road. For Trent to step up like that is big for him. That is him growing as a player and maturing and that is good to see."
Western Boone came roaring back to end the third quarter.
The Stars went on a 10-0 run, getting six points from Jason Smith and got within one at 43-42 heading to the fourth quarter.
Stars chasing CHS, redemption
Wednesday, February 04, 2015 5:21 PM
DOVER - The last time Crawfordsville and Western Boone met, the Athenians hit a last second layup to win the game and earn a spot in the championship of the Sugar Creek Classic, sponsored by The Paper of Montgomery County, Franciscan Physician Network and Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health - Crawfordsville.
This time around, the Athenians must travel to Star-territory for a regular season meeting.
"They are extremely talented and make it difficult for match-ups," Crawfordsville head coach David Pierce said. "Riggs (Baxter) is a Division 1-caliber athlete and surrounded by a bunch of strong guards who's size, quickness, and toughness makes it really hard to guard them."

North stays alive in SAC
Friday, January 30, 2015 7:19 PM
DOVER-The North Montgomery Charger boys' basketball team kept their SAC title hopes alive Friday night with a hard earned, physical 43-34 road victory over Western Boone.
North Montgomery (9-7, 4-1) withstood the early storm on Homecoming night from the Stars. The Chargers found themselves down 14-4, after shooting only 1-9 in the first period. The second quarter was a polar opposite of the first as Western Boone (5-9,1-4), was the exact same 1-9 from the field. The Stars only managed a single bucket in the stanza, and found themselves trailing 18-16 at intermission.

The Chargers currently sit in third place in the standings, with only one loss, trailing only Danville and Tri West.
