Warriors win, claim crown

DANVILLE — The Warrior boys’ basketball team capped the regular season in ideal fashion Friday night.

On its home court for Senior Night, Danville steamrolled visiting Monrovia, 68-36 to up its record to 17-4.

“You always want your seniors to walk off their court like that, and the guys did a great job,” Danville coach Brian Barber said. “We did a lot of good things with a lot of combinations. It was a good confidence-builder going into the sectional next week.”

Meanwhile, with Tri-West’s 20-point loss at Frankfort, the Warriors wrapped up sole possession of the Sagamore Conference title.

“That means a lot,” Danville senior Austin Anderson said. “We came back this year and went to work, and got a better record than last year and won the conference again. The tradition continues.”

Danville put Monrovia (3-18) away by halftime, as Luke Callahan scored 16 of his game-high 27 points in the opening two quarters. The 6-foot-6 junior also made the visitors very uncomfortable with his defensive play.

“Luke’s presence on the floor since the county tourney, he’s taken it to another level,” Barber said. “He’s a guy whose actions speak louder than words, and he can dominate in a number of different ways.”

Danville ended the first and second quarters on good runs.

In the first, D.J. Shipley hit a 3-pointer just before the buzzer to put Danville up 17-12. The Warriors then dominated the second period, and finished with a 9-0 spurt capped by a 3 from Brock Stevens for a 38-19 halftime lead.

Danville added six points to its advantage in the third quarter, and tacked on five more in the fourth.

The blowout gave Barber a chance to empty his bench, which included senior Matt Garrett, whose free throw with 2:20 left induced the biggest crowd explosion of the night.
