Bulldogs advance to semifinals against host Greensburg

BATESVILLE — The Batesville High School varsity basketball team improved to 19-2 on the season with a 78-47 victory over the Franklin  County Wildcats in the sectional tournament Wednesday night in Greensburg.

The Bulldogs took control of the game from the start. Senior Mike Hoeing hit back-to-back field goals to put Batesville on top 9-2.

A field goal by Bryan Hoeing sandwiched in between a pair of Kassidy Kase 3-pointers closed out the first quarter. Kase scored 11 of his team-high 19 points as the Bulldogs led 22-8 at the break.

The Bulldogs continued to pressure the Wildcats and stretched their lead to 20 points on a 3-pointer by Wes McKinney. It remained that way as BHS led 40-20 at halftime.

McKinney continued to produce for the Bulldogs. The junior forward scored eight of his 17 points to guide the Bulldogs to a 61-34 lead by the end of the third.

As the game got deeper into the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs substituted freely to give a variety of players opportunity.

The Wildcats got a big night from Zach Sizemore. The senior guard finished with a game-high 23 points. Defensively, they were able to hold Bryan Hoeing to only 12 points.
