Bob Wettig Day 2 Recap
Connersville advanced to the semi finals with a 43-34 win over Huntington North in the first game of the day. Bethel College commit Zach Miller led the way with 18 points.
In the second game, Class 2A #2 Tipton moved into the semis with a 49-27 victory of East Central. This was a very physical and intense game, fun to watch. University of St. Francis recruit Greg Dickey had 14 points. 2013 prospect Mike Crawford added 11. Tipton and Connersville will play at 5:00 for a spot in the finals.
Hamilton Heights cruised to a 67-43 win over Floyd Central. Indiana University signee Austin Etherington had 27 points, while his brother 2013 forward Alex Etherington added 16 points and 5 rebounds.
The final quarter-final game between the host Richmond Red Devils and Guerin Catholic turned out to be the most entertaining. It was tight all the way, however Junior Guard Riley Rapp connected on two 3's in the closing seconds, including the game winner with 1.6 seconds to go. He had 17 points, while Richmond's 2011 forward Jon Trawick had a game high 28.
The semis began at 5:00 with Tipton taking on Connersville. This game was much closer than expected. However, the Blue Devils escaped with a 49-48 victory to earn a spot in the championship. Greg Dickey had a game high 26 points, while Zach Miller led the Spartans with 19.
The final game of the evening pitted Guerin Catholic against Hamilton Heights. I was not at this game, but it sounds like Guerin must have been emotional and physically drained from their game against Richmond. Heights cruised to a 66-40 victory.
The championship will be at 7:30 Thursday night at the Tiernan Center between rivals Tipton and Hamilton Heights. Should be a great game!
