Logansport boys host Huntington North for senior night

No. 9 Cass hosts Western; Winamactravels to Pioneer.

Logansport’s boys basketball team concludes North Central Conference play tonight when the Berries host Huntington North.

The Berries (10-5, 1-4 NCC) could finish as high as a tie for fourth place in the conference standings, as could the Vikings (11-9, 1-4). Richmond, which hosts Kokomo tonight, is the NCC leader at 5-0.

The Vikings are coming off a 32-point win over Bellmont last weekend. Last Thursday they had a 101-92 loss in overtime at Marion.

“They have a little size and two really well-built guards who can shoot the 3 and post up,” Logan coach Pat Skaggs said. “On one hand they can be a very patient team on offense, but they have the ability to get out and run like they did at Marion. They lost to Muncie Central and then took Marion to overtime. Like a lot of us they’re up and down on any given night. It’ll be a tough task. They have a lot of experience back.”

The Berries are honoring their three seniors — Andrew Wamsley, Travis Palmer and Brad Nies — for senior night.

Skaggs talked about the three seniors that helped usher in his first year.

“Palmer didn’t play last year and it was nice getting him back. He’s been a real asset to the team,” he said. “His speed and quickness have been a factor for us. A lot of times he guards the other team’s best player.

“Brad Nies has overcame some injuries in his high school career. He’s a great kid and has fulfilled a role for us. There are not a lot of kids out there anymore than could handle his role. I know the coaches surely appreciate his effort and attitude. He’s another big asset to our team as well.

“Wamsley is a kid that apparently didn’t get a lot of varsity minutes last year as a junior. It didn’t take long for us to figure out at team camp that he really had a solid summer for us. He’s had some big games for us this year and had an excellent senior year and I’m happy for him. Obviously he’s been a major asset for us going 10-5 and having a winning season.
