Warriors wear down Cadets

DANVILLE — Just five points seperated the Danville Warriors and Cascade Cadets boys’ basketball teams through three quarters Saturday night. But the Warriors ratcheted up their defensive intensity and rebounding advantage in the final quarter to pull away with a 65-46 win over the visiting Cadets.

The Warriors, who employed 6-foot-6 junior Luke Callahan as the point man in their half court press defense, pilfered six steals in the final quarter as Danville jumped out to a 15-2 outburst in the fourth to finally subdue the Cadets.

Both Danville coach Brian Barber and Cascade coach Chris DuBois had similar opinions of the final outcome.

“I think we wore them down a little bit,” Barber said. “Our halfcourt trap (defense) gave them some problems. We played a lot of different combinations, and got a lot of team effort. Everybody contributed.”

Dubois added, “At the end, we just didn’t execute very good on offense or defense. And (the game) just got away from us. We got down, and fought back with hitting some big shots. But Callahan caused us a lot of problems at the top of the zone, and we didn’t react well.”

In the first half, Danville was certainly the aggressor as the Warriors forced 15 Cascade turnovers and collected 13 offensive rebounds — numbers that should have added up to a bigger lead than the seven-point difference.

However, Cascade kept in the contest by being the better shooting team, hitting 45 percent (9 of 20) as opposed to just 34 percent (14 of 41) for the host team.

Both teams played their Hendricks County contest on the heels of Friday night wins.

Barber thought the back-to-back play could have impacted his team.

“We missed some shots that we normally make,” he said. “Playing on a Friday and coming back on Saturday always has a different look to it. With a lot of new guys and young guys, I was happy with the way we responded to that.”
