Bulldogs win by nine at Anderson

It was a busy week for the Batesville High School boys basketball program.

The Bulldogs traveled to Anderson to battle the Indians and left with wins at both the varsity and junior varsity levels. It was the fourth game in eight days for No. 7 ranked Batesville.

The varsity Bulldogs got off to a sluggish start, but bounced back to post a 64-55 win over the Indians.

Anderson led 13-6 in the first quarter and later held a 15-11.

The Bulldogs got a boost on offense by junior Bryan Hoeing. Hoeing scored 10 of the team’s 19 points. Meanwhile, Batesville held the Indians to only 11 points and led 30-26 at halftime.

Sparked by senior Nathan Longstreth, coach Aaron Garrett’s crew scored nine unanswered points to begin the third quarter. Blake Walsman scored the team’s first two points and Longstreth followed with the next seven to give BHS a 39-26 lead. The Bulldogs pushed the margin to 15 points on a field goal by Boston Gowan.

Anderson scored the final five points of the third quarter to cut the deficit to 10 points. They continued in the fourth quarter and pulled within five at 45-39. A 3-pointer by Grant Bennett trimmed the Batesville lead to 47-43.

Senior guard Kassidy Kase hit a 3-pointer from the wing, which seemed to lift the Bulldogs. Walsman followed with a convention three point play and Wes McKinney added a field goal to give the Bulldogs a little breathing room at 55-43.

Batesville had a chance to extend the lead on a couple occasions, but could not get free throws to fall late in the game.

Hoeing led the Bulldogs in scoring with 17 points, while McKinney and Kase each had 12. Longstreth and Walsman were also in double figures with 11 and 10 points, respectively.

Hoeing led the team with 10 rebounds and tied for a team-high in assists with three. McKinney and Kase also had three assists.
