Tigers fall short at Anderson, lose 67-45

Anderson made some offensive adjustments at halftime and pulled away from the Lebanon Tigers 67-45 in Anderson Tuesday night.

It was the Indians' third straight victory and gave them a 9-10 mark on the season. Lebanon fell to 8-9 having lost three in a row.

"We just backed down from them," Lebanon head coach Albert Hendrix said. "It was the same thing that happened against Kokomo. They pressured us and we just took it. It sounds like a broken record, but you can't do that against big, physical 4A schools. We have to stand up to them."

Anderson's offense was balanced among the team's guards. ZacAree Owens scored 14, followed by 13 apiece from Grant Bennett and Thomas Wells.

"Defensively, I thought we were OK all night," said Anderson coach Joe Nadaline. "Offensively we were stagnant in the first half. It was a carry over from Saturday. We were holding the ball too much and not moving. We had a talk about that at halftime."

After scoring just 22 points over the first 16 minutes, AHS scored 45 in the second.

The Tigers picked up the pace a bit in the second half as well, with much of the increase coming from freshman Trevor Lakes, who hit half of his shots and a pair of free throws for nine points in the second half and 13 for the evening.
