Lebanon’s perfect season is no more.
After rising to the No. 4 spot in the Class 3A state poll with a 6-0 start Lebanon’s bid for an undefeated campaign came crashing down with a near disastrous fourth quarter.
The Tigers led Brebeuf by 15 after Cord Barricklow scored 12 seconds into the final period, but were outscored 28-8 the rest of the way as the Braves came from behind for a 58-53 victory.
“If you look at the stat sheet 22 turnovers is the key to the game,” Lebanon coach Albert Hendrix said. “They got back in the basketball game because we turned the ball over 22 times. Against good teams you’re not going to win basketball games when you turn the ball over 22 times, 14 in the second half.”
Lebanon appeared to be in firm control as the Tigers led throughout and were only tied 2-2 before pulling out to a 28-12 lead at halftime.

A farewell to guard Lance Stephenson
Lance Stephenson’s signing with the Charlotte Hornets, or Bobcats, or Hornets again, whatever they feel like calling themselves this season, generated almost no buzz whatsoever. This must be a small feeling for the Stephenson camp considering it is the deadest sports week of the year. This in the wake of LeBron’s decision to return to Cleveland, one broadcast in 195 different countries and every planet from Earth to the one Marshall Henderson calls home. Meanwhile, Charlotte is bracing for Stephenson’s arrival as if he were Hurricane Lance instead of a mercurial, multi-talented guard who does nothing but play hard, agitate opponents and do his physical best to run through walls on a nightly basis.
