Plainfield remains winless on the year

LEBANON —  It was far from pretty, but the Class 3A No. 5-ranked Lebanon Tigers stayed perfect on the season, while Plainfield remained imperfect, despite the Quakers’ best efforts.

Lebanon (6-0) got a double-double from Cord Barricklow — 7 points and 12 rebounds — as the Tigers bruised past the Quakers (0-6) 54-46.

“We didn’t shoot the ball well and Plainfield did a nice job defensively,” Lebanon coach Albert Hendrix said. “It really wasn’t a lot of pressure that hurt us. It was more of them making us take some tough shots. We missed some easy shots inside that we normally make and we had some poor free throw shooting.”

This physical game had plenty of free throw shooting, as the teams combined to go to the line 59 times. Lebanon had 39 attempts from the charity stripe but was only able to hit 21 of them. That allowed the Quakers to stay close, despite trailing 16-9 after one quarter and 24-22 at the half.

“If you can beat their trap and get the ball to the middle, then you’ve got numbers and you’re playing four on three,” Plainfield coach Andy Weaver said. “We were able to make some passes and baskets there out of their press that put us in a good position at halftime.”

Plainfield was able to turn a 9-2 second quarter run, thanks to breaking the press, after it looked as if the Tigers would build some space. The Quakers’ Jon Aldridge came off the bench, connecting twice on backdoor cuts and Bobby Jensen also scored inside to cut a nine point lead down to two at the half.

Plainfield then kept it close and tied the game for the only time at 27-27 when Josh Courtney hit two free throws with 4:23 left in the third quarter. Lebanon then took a timeout to regroup, and the Tigers were able to go back down low to their big forward Barricklow for a basket with 3:58 in the third, putting the Tigers ahead for good.
