Pike gets ultimate revenge over Brownsburg, 57-42

INDIANAPOLIS — A fine season for the Brownsburg boys’ basketball team came to an end on Saturday, as the Bulldogs fell to Pike in the Southport regional semifinals, 57-42.

The result was a 29-point reversal of the teams’ Dec. 14 meeting, when Brownsburg triumphed, 64-50.

“I thought our kids played hard and did a great job,” Brownsburg coach Steve Lynch said. “The first time we played, the ball kind of bounced our way and we were able to make some free throws. Today, they made shots and got extra chances, and we couldn’t get over the hump.”

Brownsburg trailed by three entering the deciding second half. Over the final 16 minutes, Pike shot 68 percent from the floor, while the Bulldogs managed just 31 percent.

“We had the score where we wanted it to be, but we couldn’t get enough on the offensive end, and defensively, they just got too many opportunities,” Lynch said.

While it was far from an ideal ending, Brownsburg finished the season 21-3 and notched its first sectional crown in six years.

In his final game for Brownsburg, Trevor Lucas led his team with 12 points and six rebounds.

“We had a very successful season and accomplished a lot,” Lucas said. “I love my teammates and wouldn’t trade them for anything. It just hurts to see it end.”

Lucas and K.J. Walton had five points apiece for Brownsburg in the first quarter, but Pike’s Tahjai Teague and Kendall Rollins combined for 16 as the Red Devils started with an 11-0 streak and led 18-10 at period’s end.

A 3-pointer by Jordache Mavunga capped an 8-0 Brownsburg run that tied it early in the second quarter, and Pike’s Justin Thomas hit a 3 just before the halftime buzzer for a 25-22 edge.

A Brownsburg lull early in the second half gave Pike the window it needed to take command. The Bulldogs had four turnovers and shot 1 of 5 in a stretch that saw the Red Devils up their lead to 10.
