Bruins squeeze past Orioles

DANVILLE — DANVILLE — Basketball is a game of runs and Thursday night the Tri-West Bruins did not run out of gas.

The Bruins held on to beat the Avon Orioles 57-55 in the semifinals of the Hendricks Regional Health County Basketball Tournament.

“It was a game of runs,” Tri-West coach Brad Acton said. “We got off to a good start at the beginning of the game and then they had a good start to the second quarter. Then we came out strong in the third and then midway through the third quarter they did. Both teams had some good runs and it was just a battle for 32 minutes.”

Avon inbounded the ball with 7.5 seconds remaining in the game, trailing by two. Senior Megan Price drove the length of the floor but lost the ball upon entering inside the three-point line. Price had an opening for a shot.

“Had the shot at the end, just an unfortunate bounce of the basketball,” Avon coach David Cupp said. “She did exactly what I asked her to do, to get us to the rim, and just mishandled it. I was really proud of that kid tonight.”

Both teams had 15 turnovers but Cupp felt his team’s were more troublesome.

“Because we’re young, we don’t understand the value of every possession,” he said. “We waste too many possessions. Because we turn the ball over so easily from the guard position we just don’t give ourselves a chance to win, especially in tight games. We just shot ourselves too much in the foot tonight.”

Tri-West senior Lauren DeSutter scored a game-high 28 points, including 14 in the second quarter, while playing all 32 minutes.

“You would have liked to have taken her out and given her a rest but you’ve got to have her in,” Acton said. “You’ve got to go with the kid that got you there.”
