2021 Indiana High School Basketball State Tournament: Regional Scores

Four teams entered, one left at each of 16 sites.

It was a busy day around the state for regional Saturday, and there were a couple of surprises. Let’s get to the scores:


Michigan City

South Bend Riley 44, Valparaiso 36

#10 Gary West 68, Elkhart 34

Championship: #10 Gary West 58, South Bend Riley 43

2022 Purdue Target Jalen Washington had a big day as Gary West wins its first regional in 16 years:


#2 Carmel 60, #1 Homestead 49

#8 Lafayette Jeff 52, Carroll (Fort Wayne) 46

Championship: #2 Carmel 50, #8 Lafayette Jeff 49

Undefeated # 1 Homestead and Fletcher Loyer goes down to Carmel, who at this point is inevitable. Loyer had 26 of Homestead’s 49 and Illinois-bound Luke Goode had 15. In the night game Northwestern-bound Brooks Barnhizer and Lafayette Jeff had Carmel on the ropes, but the Greyhounds scored late and won on this defensive stop:


#3 Lawrence North 58, Ben Davis 44

#6 Plainfield 61, Mount Vernon (Fortville) 52

Championship: #3 Lawrence North 43, #6 Plainfield 39

Eight dunks for Lawrence North’s DJ Hughes? Damn!


Bloomington South 51, Jeffersonville 50

Evansville Reitz 63, Center Grove 61 OT

Championship: Bloomington South 49, Evansville Reitz 31

A couple of very close morning games gave way to a comfortable win for Bloomington South. It is South’s first regional win since 2011 when they went on to win state.


SB Washington

#5 South Bend St. Joseph 84, Twin Lakes 58

#1 Hammond 51, New Prairie 34

Championship: #5 South Bend St. Joseph 79, #1 Hammond 71 OT

Another Number 1 goes down. Hammond led by 13 at halftime over St. Joseph but could not hold on. St. Joseph wins its first regional title since 1993.

New Castle

NorthWood 44, New Castle 42

#9 Leo 79, Mississinewa 43

Championship: #9 Leo 47, NorthWood 46

A controversial ending gives Leo its first regional title in school history:


Northview 63, Beech Grove 52

#6 Guerin Catholic 52, Greencastle 41

Championship: #6 Guerin Catholic 59, Northview 43

No real surprise here. Guerin was the strongest team in the field and wins its first regional since 2015.


#2 Silver Creek 52, #4 Heritage Hills 48

Connersville 46, #7 Sullivan43

Championship: #2 Silver Creek 31, Connersville 30

Connersville almost pulls off the shocker of beating two ranked teams in one day, but Trey Kaufman ultimately moves on. First, let’s get ready to see this next year:

In the night game he had 16 as Silver Creek escaped in the upset:


North Judson

Bowman Academy 52, Boone Grove 50

#1 Fort Wayne Blackhawk 68, Churubusco 55

Championship: #1 Fort Wayne Blackhawk 68, Bowman Academy 52

Caleb Furst has no trouble with a pair of double digit wins to move on to the semi-state again. He had 23 in the championship game and a very big morning game:


#8 Blackford 52, Wapahani 45

Rossville 47, #10 Rochester 30

Championship: #8 Blackford 68, Rossville 59

Luke Brown will now get a real shot at 3,000 career points. He had 33 in the championship and 17 in the morning win to move to 2,977 for his career. Catching Bailey is now likely out of the question, but with 43 more points he can reach 2nd all-time in state history. It is Blackford’s first ever regional title.


#5 Parke Heritage 47, Triton Central 30

#2 Shenandoah 82, #7 Covenant Christian 52

Championship: #5 Parke Heritage 52, Shenandoah 33

Parke Heritage wins its first regional ever in a mild upset. The school itself is a recent consolidation of Rockville and Turkey Run, so they have not been around long, but they are now a regional champ.


Southridge 43, Paoli 35

Southwestern (Hanover) 59, #6 Linton-Stockton 58

Championship: Southridge 61, Southwestern (Hanover) 48

Southridge uses its home court advantage to win its first regional since 1986, when they made their second of two straight Final Four trips during the one class era.



Triton 64, Caston 52 2OT

#3 Kouts 66, Fremont 62

Championship: #3 Kouts 56, Triton 42

Normally high scoring Kouts was limited, but still won its first regional since 2001.


Lafayette Central Catholic 67, Cowan 63

Southwood 79, Seton Catholic 59

Championship: Southwood 54, Lafayette Central Catholic 53

Carson Rich hits a game-winner for Southwood!


Southwestern (Shelbyville) 57, Bethesda Christian 50

#8 Indianapolis Tindley 65, Shakamak 43

Championship: #8 Indianapolis Tindley 50, Southwestern (Shelbyville) 48

Eric Hunter Jr.’s old school advances to the semi-state for the first time since they won the state title with him in 2017.


#1 Barr-Reeve 63, Trinity Lutheran 38

Lanesville 73, Evansville Day 51

Championship: #1 Barr-Reeve 64, Lanesville 34

The Barr-Reeve machine rolls on with no trouble whatsoever.
