    Lanesville used a bit of half time strategy from Coach Bill Krammes to pull out the 49-36 win at West Washington Saturday.
    Krammes said that when the team wins, it sometimes is happy just to have won the game, whether or not they played to their best level or not.
    The Lanesville coach said that although a few players might have been taken aback at the challenging tone during the discussion, there was a sound reason for the tone.
    “I was challenging them not to be satisfied with just winning a basketball game,” Krammes explained. “We…challenged them to try to be the best they can competitively be.”
    It must have worked, because Lanesville led just 19-14 at the half, and they went on a 16-8 run through the 3rd quarter to take a more commanding 35-22 lead after the 3rd period.
    “I didn’t think we played very the first half,” said Krammes. “In the 3rd quarter, they played better. I was real happy with the way they played in the second half.”

    Floyd Central received a big boost from Jennifer Smith against host Scottsburg Thursday night, when she scored 23 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in her team’s 68-50 win.
    Floyd had trouble with the Warriorettes in the 1st quarter, when they led just 19-16 at the end of the period.
    The 2nd quarter saw Scottsburg take a lead over the Lady Highlanders and lead 31-30 at the half.
    Floyd Central coach Joe Voelker said that the key to the win was in going on a 20-2 run to start the second half.
    “That kind of won the game right there,” said Voelker of his team’s blitz to start the half.
    Voelker said that although Scottsburg was partly responsible for the start his team had in the first half, he said his own team was partly to blame for the problems.
