2019 Indiana High School Basketball State Tournament: Sectional Championship Scores

New, comments

Isaiah Thompson pulls off some Zionsville history, but Brandon Newman’s Valpariso is upset.

There is nothing like climbing a ladder to cut down the nets. I was fortunate enough to do it eight times in three years for my Kats: 3 sectionals, 2 regionals, a semi-state, and a holiday tournament. Tonight 64 teams around the state cut down sectional nets to move on to one of the best days of the year: Regional Saturday.

CLASS 4A

Crown Point

Munster 56, Lowell 33

Portage

Chesterton 35, Valparaiso 30

Brandon Newman’s team goes down in a stunner. They had beaten Chesterton 69-37 on February 15, but Chesterton slows it down and wins its first sectional since 1987.

Penn

Penn 63, South Bend Adams 60

Elkhart Central

Northridge 59, Warsaw 46

DeKalb

Fort Wayne Northrop 77, East Noble 66

Fort Wayne Wayne

Huntington North 52, Fort Wayne Wayne 40

Kokomo

Zionsville 64, McCutcheon 41

Zionsville wins consecutive sectionals for the first time since 1958-59. Isaiah Thompson is a large reason for that. He had 16 tonight and is now at 2,104 points for his career, tied for 35th in state history with Tipton’s Mike Crawford. With 52 more points in next week’s regional he would crack the top 25.

Carmel

Carmel 45, Hamilton Southeastern 39

Richmond

New Palestine 61, Mount Vernon (Fortville) 43

Lawrence North

Lawrence Central 67, Warren Central 52

Defending champion Warren Central goes down and football signee David Bell fouled out late in this as Lawrence Central wins after splitting the regular season games. Warren Central goes 23-3 this year, losing twice to No. 2 Lawrence Central and to No. 1 Carmel after going 32-0 last year and ebating Romeo Langford.

Perry Meridian

Ben Davis 69, Decatur Central 51

Brownsburg

Avon 56, Mooresville 34

Center Grove

Center Grove 29, Franklin 28 OT

Trayce Jackson-Davis and Center Grove barely survives. They should be embarrassed with how much they struggled in this sectional.

Columbus North

Bloomington South 63, Shelbyville 48

Bloomington South coach J.R. Holmes extends his record with his 809th career win.

Seymour

Jeffersonville 60, New Albany 42

Evansville North

Jasper 45, Evansville Reitz 39

CLASS 3A

Hammond Gavit

Calumet

Hanover Central 50, Calumet 42

A drought breaker. Hanove Central wins its first sectional since 1986.

Jimtown

Culver Academy 52, Mishawaka Marian 41

In a battle of 2020 targets Trey Galloway gets the best of Jaden Ivey. Culver is the defending 3A champ and if they win next week’s regional they will be forced to move up to 4A.

Frankfort

West Lafayette 79, Maconaquah 58

Yanni Karlaftis, the football target, had 14 as WLHS moves on to the regional again.

Tippecanoe Valley 43, Wawasee 31

West Washington

West Washington 53, Crothersville 41

Heartbreaker for Crothersville. They had been part of the tournament since 1915 and had never won a sectional. They beat West Washington by 16 in the regular season, but could not pull it off tonight.

Loogootee

Barr-Reeve 62, Shoals 35

Wood Memorial

Evansville Day 39, Wood Memorial 37
