Regional Saturday is complete. The most grueling Saturday of the year has crowned its 16 champions, and several of them have potential future Boilermakers:
Warsaw 46,Crown Point 33
Indiana signee Grant Gelon bows out as No. 5 Warsaw moves on with a 25-1 record.
McCutcheon 85, Homestead 66
Robert Phinisee scores 27 as No. 4 McCutcheon needed a last second three to survive the morning session, but they knock out the defending Class 4A state champion in the night game. It is their first regional title since 2001.
Southport 74, Terre Haute South 44
Butler signee Joey Brunk drops a 27-12 and Paul Scruggs has a 17-8 as No. 9 Southport rolls to its first regional title since 1990.
New Albany 84, Evansville Reitz 70
Romeo Langford exploded for 37 and now has well over 1,200 points in his career as only a sophomore. No. 1 New Albany will play Southport next week.
Griffith 41, Mishawaka Marian 24
Griffith wins a second straight regional.
Marion 66, NorthWood 62
Vijay Blackmon and Reggie Jones have the evil Marion Giants moving on to the semi-state as Marion no ties Lafayette Jeff with a state record 38 regional titles.
Tri-West 64, Brebeuf 50
A major surprise here, Tri-West wins its first ever regional after winning a third straight sectional. This was the regional where Park Tudor was a heavy favorite, but Brebeuf beat them this morning.

Bosse is a three-time state champion, but has not won it since 1962. They did make the state finals in 2007, however.

Indianapolis Howe 55, Northeastern 53
