Lebanon falls in battle of the Tigers

Indianapolis — The Class 3A No. 7 Lebanon Tigers boys basketball team couldn’t have asked for a much better start Thursday night against Class 4A No. 16 Fishers.

But after jumping out to an 11-3 lead in the first five minutes of the game, Lebanon was out-scored 24-0 for the next 10, and Fishers cruised to the 65-49 victory at Banker’s Life Fieldhouse.

“We got to that lead and then they got a couple of fast-break baskets,” Lebanon head coach Albert Hendrix said. “They got a basket because we didn’t get back on defense and we took a timeout to talk about that. Then we gave up two dunks to Jaylon Brown and when we gave those dunks up I thought our kids got back on their heels and quit attacking and quit playing. That was the difference in the game. I just felt like we got back on our heels and scared and we didn’t do that early in the game.”

Lebanon led 4-3 when they got a basket from Cord Barricklow, a three-point play from Jacob Nelson and a basket from Nick Starkey in a 40-second span to take an 11-3 lead with 3:11 to play in the first quarter.

But the Tigers wouldn’t score another point until 1:15 remained in the half on a basket by Starkey.

During that time, Fishers made 10-of-14 shots (after starting 1-of-6) and jumped out to a 16-point lead.

“We took some bad shots and forced things,” Hendrix said. “Because again, we were back on our heels and scared to attack them. That results in taking bad shots, and when you take bad shots, you don’t hit many of them.”

Fishers built the lead to 23 midway through the third quarter before Lebanon mounted one last attempt at a comeback.
