Bulldogs’ postseason halts to Hawks



In the final four minutes of the game, the score was tied thrice and the lead changed hands five times.

Brownsburg backup 6-7 sophomore center Dalton Vachon hit a jumper with no hesitation from the top of the key, just a step inside the three-point line to tie the score at 51-51 with 1:45 remaining.

As Hawks went to answer back, Vachon drew a charge on Adam Preda.

“We’ve always known he can shoot it, did I expect him to shoot it right then? No,” Nored said. “Did I look at my assistants and say, ‘Did that really go in?’ Yes… And then to go down and take a charge the next play. He came in focused and did his job really well.”

Senior Jimmy Lee hit a runner to give Decatur Central a two point lead with under a minute remaining. Bulldog sophomore K.J. Walton tied the score with 33 seconds remaining with two clutch free throws.

Lucas tipped a pass that resulted in Brownsburg’s possession, but the Bulldogs turned the ball over to set up the go-ahead fastbreak layup from Johnson.

Johnson scored a game-high 32 points as he scored a variety of ways — including off three 3-pointers and a pair of thunderous dunks.

“Between him and the rim, he’s hard to stop,” Nored said. “He had a great game, he’s a senior, he had all on the line and he came out and played.”

Brownsburg threw a multitude of different defenders at him in an attempt to slow the nearly 26 points per game scorer. The 6-foot-3 guard shot 11 of 25 and made all seven of his free throws.

“We just wanted to make it tough for him,” Nored said. “We wanted to have the team focus on him so to rotate over and help. He made plays and found guys when he needed to.”
