Brownsburg holds off Terre Haute North

AVON — Nothing in postseason play is certain as the Class 4A No. 5-ranked Brownsburg boys’ basketball team found out Tuesday night against Terre Haute North.

On paper it looked as though the 18-2 Bulldogs would run away with the win against a 7-14 Patriots squad, but that was not the case.

Brownsburg held off Terre Haute North’s second half surge and iced the game from the free throw line to take a 51-47 win.

“In a tournament atmosphere it becomes a possession game and I know we had errors, but I thought Terre Haute North played great,” Brownsburg coach Steve Lynch said. “Every mistake we made was obvious, but at the same time I thought our guys had great composure, made plays when we were supposed to, and when we needed a basket we had timely shooting.”

Brownsburg’s defense, which has held opponents to 42.7 points per game, played well enough to hold off Terre Haute North. Brownsburg started off by forcing five turnovers, scoring eight points off easy transition baskets.

“We started in the 1-3-1 and got a couple of steals and they settled in and figured out what they wanted to do,” Lynch said. “Our man-to-man was our bread and butter and we just set in that and got enough stops.”

Brownsburg point guard Darrian Ringo and K.J. Walton, who was just offered a scholarship by the University of Minnesota, hit 9 of 9 free throws in the fourth and the pair went 6 of 6 in the final 1:15. Ringo finished with game-high 19 points.

“Darrian has a moniker of ‘All I want to do is win’ and I think he displays that repeatedly,” Lynch said.

Brownsburg built a 30-18 lead after a Tyler Houston trey fell as the buzzer sounded in the second and the Bulldogs looked well on their way to routing the Patriots.
