Friday night was filled with a ton of action and there were big upsets and big scoring totals. Today, we look at Center Grove’s big win over Cathedral, Edgewood Looking Dominant, and Jeffersonville’s Trip To Evansville.
Center Grove’s Big Win
In a battle of Top 3 teams in the state, Center Grove came from behind and was able to knock off Cathedral in a fun early season matchup. It took a rally in the late fourth quarter topped by a Tayven Jackson triple with under 30 seconds to pull off the victory.
In a game that had it’s good and bad moments, you saw two of the top contenders from Mr. Basketball in the state go head-to-head and at the end of it, you have to give a slight edge to Center Grove and Trayce Jackson-Davis. His play late in the game was key as he finished with 21 points and 12 rebounds. Armaan Franklin was good earlier in the game but Trayce got the better of him late with a couple big blocks when Cathedral was coughing up the late lead. Franklin finished with 13 points and 9 rebounds.
For Cathedral, this will be a game that haunts them as they had a big lead late. They were up 10 heading into the fourth quarter and again midway through the final quarter. They were still even up 60-59 with 1:39 to go but they couldn’t stop the rally.
Edgewood Looking Dominant
While only three games into the season, 3A rural program Edgewood now moves to 3-0 after a win over Cloverdale on Friday night. They have now beaten two 4A teams in Bloomington South and Martinsville as well as 2A Cloverdale.
The Cloverdale win is key because they won by more than 40 points and it was a chance for their to be a letdown after the last two wins. That didn’t happen. Now, looking ahead, they have very winnable games against Cascade, Bloomfield, and Indian Creek before their schedule gets even easier. There is a very good chance they go into the Wabash Valley Tournament in December 8-0 and be the team to beat. Could make for a fun event.
Jeffersonville Gets At Bosse
Going into the season, we knew that this could be a very good season for Jeffersonville and for Bosse, we didn’t know quite what they would be after graduating so many. But last night was the first test for either team and it put things a little more in perspective.
A 64-46 win for Jeffersonville was a score that seems quite telling of a Bosse team that is going to need to find some more guys. Jeff is good on paper and looks good in games as well with a deep team with Jacob Jones, Tre Coleman, and others.
Last night though, three guys scored 36 of Bosse’s 46 points. That is something they are going to have to figure out because they are so used to being a deep team with guys that can go get themselves 20 points or more. Now, they just don’t have those guys but still have a trio of games coming up to Princeton, Forest Park, and Evansville Memorial. That will give even more clarity to their outlook this season.
