Bulldogs win Ripley County basketball tournament with victory over South Ripley


The Batesville Bulldogs won their seventh consecutive Ripley County basketball tournament title by knocking off the South Ripley Raiders 68-47 on Saturday night.

Along with keeping their tournament winning streak alive, it is the school's 12th county championship in the past 14 years.

"It was a good win for us," BHS head coach Aaron Garrett commented. "I was pleased with the effort and intensity we played with all four quarters.

"Defensively we showed some improvement from the past couple outings ... that is encouraging heading into Thursday's game at Greensburg," he added.

The Bulldogs turned the ball over on their first possession of the game, but it did not take long for them to take control.

Batesville held the Raiders to only two first quarter points and jumped out to a 13 point lead.

Nathan Longsteth got the scoring started followed by field goals by Wes McKinney and Bryan Hoeing to make it 7-0. Hoeing followed with four of the team's next six points to go up 13-2 and force a South Ripley time-out.

The momentum still sided with the Bulldogs as the second quarter unfolded.

Blake Walsman and Kassidy Kase added to the scoring punch early in the second quarter with four points apiece to help drive the advantage to 26-5. Longstreth countered with four unanswered points to make it 30-5.

Batesville was able to keep its lead to 22 points by halftime.

A 3-pointer by Hoeing to open the third quarter was a good indication the Bulldogs were still on track to take the title.

The Raiders were able to counter the Bulldogs with more regularity in the third quarter. But they were not able to make up much ground.

The Bulldogs closed the third quarter on a 12-3 run to make the score 57-26 to enter the final eight minutes.
