Regional Saturday is over and Purdue’s signees are all done. Isaiah Thompson of Zionsville had a solid morning game in leading the Eagles to their first win in a regional game since 1955, but Carmel is always a tough team. The Greyhounds beat Zionsville 66-61 in the season opener on November 20th and tonight they ended the Eagles’ season 53-39 in the Logansport Regional final. Zionsville closes the year 21-6, but lost to Carmel twice and Cathedral twice as the teams that were the bane of their existence.
Here is the rest of the action on Regional Saturday.
