Berries hold off Warriors

Logan goes 24 for 24 from foul line in win over Winamac

It wasn’t always pretty but Logansport’s boys basketball team got a much-needed win over a red-hot Winamac squad Thursday night at the Berry Bowl.

The Berries held off a late Warriors rally for an 83-75 win in their home finale.

The Berries (11-7) snapped a two-game skid and got just their third win their last nine tries. They also snapped the Warriors’ (11-8) six-game win streak.

A.J. Smith led the Berries with 21 points and his steal and score with 1:25 left in the game gave the Berries a 79-73 lead after Winamac had cut what had been a 16-point fourth-quarter lead down to four.

A Colin McGee basket cut the lead back down to 79-75 with 58 seconds left but Smith knocked down a pair of free throws and following a Adam Gruenig miss from 3, Matt Jennings knocked down two more free throws with 22.1 seconds left for the final 83-75 margin.

Logan finished 24 of 24 from the foul line to Winamac’s 2 of 8.

“I don’t know if I’ve ever had a team go 24 for 24 from the free-throw line in a game so that obviously played a big part in us winning the game tonight,” Logan coach Pat Skaggs said.

Winamac nearly made up for the disparity by making 11 3-pointers in the contest to Logan’s one but it was not enough.

“I’m still puzzled why we can’t do a better job of getting to the free-throw line,” Winamac coach Kyle Johnson said. “Once again we lose a game similar to Lewis Cass, 31 free throws made to five for us. Tonight it was 24 to two. That’s disappointing and I’ve got to get my guys to do better getting to the free-throw line.”

Logan’s fullcourt pressure gave Winamac some problems to start the game and the Berries jumped out to a 14-5 lead in the first four minutes. They led 24-13 after one quarter and an Alex Brink three-point play just before halftime gave them a 46-33 lead at the break. Brink got to the line with 0.8 seconds left in the third quarter and hit both foul shots to give Logan a 67-51 lead after three.
