Centerville Captures 3rd Consecutive Title

This game was a great example of good, old fashioned Indiana High School Basketball. Every possession was meaningful, each shot hotly contested, and many players diving around for loose balls or rebounds. In the end, the poise and composure of the Centerville Bulldogs prevailed as they took home the Sectional 42 trophy once again with a 63-59 overtime win over Union County.

Union County Coach Mark Detweiler said after the game that his game plan was to make somebody besides Matthew Schauss beat them. His game plan worked in a way, Senior Guard Zach Sandlin stepped up for the Bulldogs and poured in a career high 29 points, including the first 11 of the game. With around 10 seconds remaining in regulation Sandlin connected on one of his 4 3-pointers to send the game into the extra session. Senior Guard Matthew Schauss scored all 19 of his points in the second half to help lead Centerville to the title. He also aded 8 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals. For Union County, Andrew Strait lead the way hitting 9 3-pointers for 29 points.

Centerville will head to Connersville on Saturday to take on defending 2A State runner-up Park Tudor.
