2019 Indiana High School Basketball State Tournament: Regional Scores

Isaiah Thompson’s team falls in its farthest advance since 1955.

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.


Michigan City

Penn 49, Chesterton 42

Northridge 62, Munster 53

Penn 74, Northridge 72


Carmel 58, Fort Wayne Northrop 42

Zionsville 52, Huntington North 41

Carmel 53, Zionsville 39

Isaiah had 24 in the morning game, but much like the season opener he was held in check by No. 1 Carmel. They held him to 12 points and were in control throughout in this one. Thompson finishes his career with 2,140 career points, which is 27th in state history. He is one point ahead of Rich Mount (Rick Mount’s son) and missed the top 25 by 16 points. Among the notable players he passed with 36 points today were Steve alford and Shawn Kemp.


New Palestine 64, Avon 59

Ben Davis 75, Lawrence Central 65

Ben Davis 53, New Palestine 47

Ben Davis lost to #2 Lawrence Central 72-57 during the regular seaosn, but reverses the result and moves past New Palestine to reach the semi-state. They were the 4A title winner in 2017, so this could be a second title in three years after Aaron Henry led them to a crown two years ago.


Center Grove 65, Jasper 40

Bloomington South 68, Jeffersonville 52

Center Grove 64, Bloomington South 41

Indiana signee Trayce Jackson-Davis wins a regional and Center Grove will play Ben Davis for the state finals berth. Ben Davis won the regular season meeting 56-45.


South Bend Washington

Culver Academy 55, Hanover Central 37

Hammond 64, West Lafayette 40

Culver Academy 62, Hammond 41

Culver Academy is the only defending state champion still alive and 2020 target Trey Galloway has made sure they will have to play in 4A next year. he had 9 at halftime and here is a dunk in the morning game for him.


Marion 59, Angola 38

Delta 54, Tippecanoe Valley 28

Marion 45, Delta 39

The state’s last undefeated team goes down and Marion is still alive for a record 9th state championship. I will now light myself on fire.


Beech Grove 52, Greencastle 37

Indianapolis Attucks 88, Owen Valley 61

Indianapolis Attucks 68, Beech Grove 63

Indianapolis Crispus Attucks joins Ben Davis in looking for a second title in three years.


Princeton 53, Batesville 43 OT

Silver Creek 79, Evansville Memorial 50

Silver Creek 67, Princeton 58

Silver Creek wins only the third regional in school history and first since 2000.


North Judson

Andrean 71, Marquette Catholic 70

Westview 62, Bluffton 48

Andrean 60, Westview 49

Dan Dakich’s old school wins this one, so he can be 10% more insufferable.


Frankton 57, Wabash 54

Covington 77, Alexandria 64

Frankton 73, Covington 53

The Class 2A Champion the last three eyars have come from this regional, and that was Frankton in 2017 as the 2019 state champions are now 3 of 3 in winning again 2 years later.


Northeastern 58, Monrovia 54

Shenandoah 42, Northeastern 37

Shenandoah officially has the best record left of any team at 26-1.


Linton-Stockton 72, Paoli 71

Tell City 54, Southwestern (Hanover) 48

Linton-Stockton 45, Tell City 36

Linton-Stockton officially had the buzzer beater of the day in the morning session. They made the most of it by winning the night game.



Argos 53, Covenant Christian (DeMotte) 34

Fort Wayne Blackhawk 65, Gary 21st Century 57

Fort Wayne Blackhawk 77, Argos 39

2021 5-star target Caleb Furst had very little trouble here. He had a 25 and 10 in the championship game. Here he is in action.


North Vermillion 59, Southern Wells 53

Lafayette Central Catholic 65, Randolph Southern 43

Lafayette Central Catholic 80, North Vermillion 43

Central Catholic rolls through this one as usual. I am surprised because they lack an Anthrop.


Greenwood Christian 65, Morristown 55

Bloomfield 49, Indianapolis Metropolitan 43

Bloomfield 52, Greenwood Christian 50

Morristown is the third defending champion to go down as Warren Central (4A) and Oak Hill (2A) went down last week.


Lanesville 55, West Washington 46

Barr-Reeve 48, Evansville Day 41

Barr-Reeve 69, Lanesville 36

As expected, Barr-Reeve had little trouble here. They repeat as Regional champs and with a win next week they can make their 6th state finals appearance since 2002. They even have a 42-34 win over Bloomfield in the regular season finale and will play them in the semi-state.
