?    Coming off of a six point victory against Southwestern the night before, Scottsburg was looking to pick up another road win to get their season back on track.  Bedford North Lawrence knew beforehand what it was going to take to win the February 7 match-up, and were prepared to do that from the beginning.  The Warriors are quite frequently the smaller team in their games, as was the case in this one, and the Stars planned on exploiting that and using it to their advantage.
    The major flaw for Scottsburg throughout this game was not their lack in size compared to BNL, which was magnified with Ben Everett being injured, but was the non-existence of interior defense.  The Stars would execute on easy lay-up after easy lay-up, putting points on the board without challenge.  Freshman Max Clemons would single-handedly keep the Warriors in the game during the first half, scoring 11 points off of three three pointers.  Scottsburg pulled within three points, 27-24, with 21 seconds left in the half, when they would turn the ball over twice and allow the Stars to score, ending all momentum going into the break.
    The turnovers that closed the second quarter were deflating for the Warriors, as the Stars shut down Scottsburg’s main threat in Clemons, and steadily pulled away for the 62-45 victory.
    The Stars would have the rebounding advantage 33-24 on the night, which was no surprise.  If the Warriors were to look at a shot chart they would see that BNL racked up the majority of their points on the block with wide open layups.  Clemons would lead the Warriors with 15 points, as Landon Duncan and Ason Hacker would lead the Stars with 15.
