Bulldogs close out 2013 with win at EC

Hoeing nets 17 to lead way

The No. 6 ranked basketball team in Class 3A traveled to St. Leon on Saturday night.

The Batesville Bulldogs closed out 2013 with a 65-40 victory over the East Central Trojans.

“Very happy to enter break with a victory,” BHS head coach Aaron Garrett commented. “This is a tough place to play.

“East Central is always well prepared and we knew we would have to play well to leave with a win,” he added.

The Bulldogs looked sharp offensively in the first quarter and tallied 19 points. Nathan Longstreth and Wes McKinney each hit 3-pointers early in the quarter. They later countered with production in the paint. Matt Dennis scored five points in the quarter, but foul troubled limited his playing time as the game progressed.

After a shaky start on the defensive end gave up 12 first quarter points, the Bulldogs were better in the second quarter. East Central did not get their first points of the second until the 1:11 mark. York McCory hit a pair of free throws and followed with a field goal to cut the Batesville lead to 29-16.

McKinney capped the Batesville scoring with a 3-pointer to give the Bulldogs a 32-16 halftime lead.

The Trojans managed 17 third quarter points, but the Bulldogs countered with 23 to extend the margin to 55-33. Bryan Hoeing gave the Bulldogs a lift early in the quarter with the team’s first eight points, while Blake Walsman scored six of the final eight.

Batesville turned in another solid effort on the defensive end in the fourth quarter to close it out. The Trojans scored just seven points over the final eight minutes.

The Bulldogs were led in scoring by Hoeing with 19 points and Walsman with 15. Longstreth was third on the team with nine.

Hunter Kammer led the way for the Trojans with 11 points followed by McCory with 10.

“I thought we had some good stretches on offense ... it probably was not our best overall production at the defensive end,” Garrett commented. “Still, we played well enough to get the win.
