Bode's buzzer-beater beats Danville

DANVILLE — DANVILLE — In a seesaw battle between boys’ basketball rivals Avon and Danville, it was only natural the game was decided on the final possession.

Oriole senior Aaron Bode scored on an up-and-under move from just outside the lane as time expired to send Avon home with a 46-44 victory over Danville Friday night in the semifinals of the Hendricks Regional Health County Basketball Tournament.

“I guess I got double or triple teamed, I didn’t really see, but I knew I wanted to get some space to get a shot off,” Bode said. “I got knocked down on the play so I didn’t see it until the very end but definitely relief and excitement when it went in.”

Danville tied the score at 44 with under 20 seconds to go as Tyler Ross snatched an offensive rebound, scored the putback and was fouled to complete the three-point play.

“Tyler’s been playing really confident for us,” Danville coach Brian Barber said. “The last several weeks there have been times where he is our best player on the floor. He’s just done a super job of staying poised and battling.”

Avon coach Jason Young elected not to take a timeout and let his Orioles play.

“We executed a set play without having to use a timeout there in the final seconds and you had senior Jordan Rhoades delivering it to senior Aaron Bode and he made a nice up-and-under move,” Young said.

There were 15 lead changes and both teams were rarely separated by more than two possessions throughout the contest. Avon led 13-12 after the first, Danville had a 24-23 lead at halftime and the Warriors led 35-32 at the end of the third.

“It was a great game,” Barber said. “It was one of those games where kids played their hearts out. I thought it was a well-played game by both teams. It’s what you would expect in the semifinals of the county tournament with two rivals.
