Hutsonville 87, Lawrenceville 64
Indians take a step back in 23-point loss to Tigers
LAWRENCEVILLE - The Hutsonville-Palestine Tigers outscored the homestanding Lawrenceville Indians 25-5 over a five-minute stretch in the third quarter and went on to post an 87-64 Little Illini Conference win Tuesday night.

While the 64 points was the second-most the Indians have scored in a game this season, the 87 was by far the most they have given up in a contest.

The loss dropped the Tribe to 1-6 overall and 1-1 in league play. Hutsonville improved to 5-3 overall and 1-1 in the LIC.

The Indians fell behind early, 16-7 with two minutes left in the first period, and trailed 20-14 at the quarter break. Hutsonville led by a many as nine points in the second quarter before a rebound basket by Trevor Lockhart pulled the Indians to within five, 38-33 at halftime.

Jacob Potts hit two free throws and Harry Loeb put in a rebound to pull the Tribe to within one, 38-37 early in the third period before the Tigers went on a big run and led 63-42 with two minutes left in the quarter.

Hutsonville then coasted the remainder of the game.

"We're really struggling defensively. We didn't guard well in the third quarter. They ran a dribble-drive offense and they were shooting basically layups or wide open threes," said LHS coach Randy Bishop. "We're scoring enough points to win games, we're just not guarding anybody."

The Indians also turned the ball over nine times in the third quarter and 23 times for the game.

The two teams combined to take 141 shots in a fast-paced affair that featured 44 3-point attempts. The Indians were 24-for-74 from the field, including 4-for-23 from three-point range while the Tigers were 30-for-67 from the field and  8-for-21 from behind the arc.

Hutsonville hit seven 3-pointers in the first half in 15 attempts to hold off the Indians.

Lockhart, a 6-3 junior, paced the Indians with 13 points with Brandt Cochran, a freshman guard, coming off the bench to score 12 points. Braxton Blagrave added 10. Potts just missed double figures with nine points and a team-high seven rebounds.

Lawrenceville's leading scorer coming into the game, Austin Dorney, went to the bench early in the second half when he was hit on top of the head and the injury drew blood. Bishop said Dorney, who was averaging 13.2 ppg., may have suffered a concussion and could be out of the lineup for a while. 

For Hutsonville, 6-0 sophomore guard Graham Alspach scored 22 points, including 15 in the second half. Senior Tyler Heflin added 21 points with 12 coming on four first-half three-pointers.

Joe Eckert added 12 points and Matt Schmidlin 10.

The Tigers were 19-for-25 from the free throw line as three Indians - Potts, Loeb and Cochran - fouled out of the game. Dylan Webster and Landon Williams fouled out for Hutsonville.

"We've got a long way to go in the season. I'm hoping we progress. I thought we had, and then we stepped backward again tonight, so, we've got a lot to do yet," Bishop said of his club, which was coming off of an 84-65 win at Edwards County. "Right now we're down. They're not supposed to lose these games and when you do you get your head down a little bit. We really haven't been brow beating them that way. They're pretty frustrated themselves. It's not like they want to lose, so I've got to try to find the answers in the next couple weeks."

In the junior varsity game, the Indians rolled to a 71-31 win, improving to 3-0 on the season. Freshmen Jordan Shick and Cochran led the JV Indians with 16 and 12 respectively.  Sophomore John Barnes was in double-digits with 10.

Friday, the Indians travel to Casey for another conference game.
