Bulldogs’ postseason halts to Hawks

INDIANAPOLIS — Each basketball game has it’s own moment, somewhere in between four quarters or the two halves, where one team emerges as the victor.

In Wednesday’s boys’ sectional opening contest between Brownsburg and Decatur Central, it was not until the buzzer sounded and the scoreboard struck zero that the winner was decided.

After 18 lead changes and six ties, the Bulldogs’ last-second opportunities fell just short and the Hawks won 55-53.

“The hardest part about it is not that we lost,” Brownsburg coach Ronald Nored said. “You win and lose basketball games, it’s always going to happen. But this group of guys came together like nothing before. And that’s the hard part, that we don’t get to compete together as a group again.”

Brownsburg called a timeout and trailed by two with just under eight seconds to go after Decatur Central’s Anthony Johnson scored off a fastbreak layup.

The Bulldogs went the length of the court and had a shot to win as Trevor Lucas’ 3-pointer from the right wing was just a tad long.

In the scramble off the miss, Brownsburg had an opportunity to tie as time expired but the tip-in did not connect.

“We had a chance to win it or tie it there at the end,” Nored said. “I thought we got a great look at a shot and we got a great look on an offensive rebound, unfortunately neither one of them fell.”

The Decatur Central student section stormed the court as the Bulldogs season came to a tough and abrupt end.

“It’s tough because especially those guys think about a play here and there that they could have done better and I remember as a player thinking ‘What could I have done better?’ and they are going to think about that, ” Nored said. “As a 15, 16, 17, 18 year old that’s what you are going to think about. But I told them when you look back, you are going to think about the team that you played with. The loss and what you could have done, that’s going to go out of the window.”
