Bulldogs win on the road against Jennings County

Hoeing nets 41 points and grabs 17 rebounds

— The Batesville High School boys varsity basketball team needed to bounce back from a tough loss to the East Central Trojans with only three games until sectional play begins.

Despite a rocky start, the Bulldogs responded with a hard-fought 73-62 victory on the road against Jennings County.

The Bulldogs trailed 15-10 at the end of the first quarter, but made up the ground and a little more in the second.

Bryan Hoeing scored 13 of his game-high 41 points to help give the Bulldogs a 32-30 halftime lead.

Coach Aaron Garrett’s crew gradually built a seven point lead on back-to-back field goals by junior Wes McKinney. Blake Walsman added a basket and the Bulldogs had their biggest lead of the game at 45-36 near the 5:00 mark.

Jennings County’s Caleb Eder scored the next six points to pull the Panthers within three. A key rebound and basket by Quinn Grimsley was followed a possession later by another McKinney field goal as the Bulldogs regained the momentum.

The third quarter ended with the Bulldogs in front  53-46.

The Panthers took the lead in the fourth quarter on a 3-pointer by Dan Leach only to see Hoeing take over and score the next eight points to give the Bulldogs back a 63-56 advantage.

The Panthers would get only as close as four points the rest of the way.

Hoeing’s 41 points is the second time the sophomore forward has eclipsed the 40-point mark this season. He also added 17 rebounds against the Panthers.

McKinney was the only other Bulldog scoring in double figures with 12 points.

The Bulldogs improved to 16-2 with the victory, while the Panthers fall to 11-8.

The Batesville junior varsity fell to 12-6 on the season with a 43-36 loss.

The Panthers outscored the Bulldogs 9-6 in the second quarter to enter halftime knotted at 17-17. They gained a three point advantage by the end of the third.

After falling behind even more early in the fourth, the Bulldogs kept battling and pulled to within three points on a couple of occasions.

Trips to the free throw line down the stretch helped give the Panthers a seven point cushion when the final buzzer sounded.

Bo Gowan had a good night offensively for the Bulldogs with 18 points. Matt Moorman was also in double figures with 10 points over three quarters of play.
