Cass travels to Maconaquah; Caston hosts Pioneer

Cass travels to Maconaquah; Caston hosts Pioneer

Lewis Cass’ boys basketball team doesn’t have much time to revel in its big win over Logansport.

The Kings (7-2, 1-1 Mid-Indiana Conference) are back in action tonight when they travel to Maconaquah (3-5, 0-2) for a league game.

The Braves have an experienced and proud group.

“They sure do,” Cass coach Jon Kitchel said. “The Harts kid has played a lot of basketball and he’ll be a handful for us. The Hagan kid is quick. The Walton kid is one of the most athletic kids we’ve seen. They have a nice team. If we continue to celebrate the win last night, they’ll put one on us.”

A win over Logansport is always big for the Kings. It was their first win over the Berries since 2008, the last year of the Basil Mawbey era. Mawbey went 4-4 against the Berries in his eight-year run, which included a win during the state championship season of 2003.

Those were certainly golden years for the Kings, as were the days when the Kitchel boys ruled the court. Kitchel, who graduated in 1978, said he never played Logansport.

“I don’t remember my sophomore year. My junior year at the sectional Peru beat us. My senior year, Peru beat Logan and we beat Peru,” he said.

The ‘70s were certainly a heyday for hoops in the area.

“There was a lot of good basketball played back then. You had several guys go on to play Division I. Lozier and Williams, Peru had Macy and Garrett,” Kitchel said.

Things are again looking bright in the area, including in Kings country.

“You’ve gotta get the winning tradition back, get the fans excited. It’s a process and we’re headed in the right direction,” Kitchel said.

Cass, ranked 14th in this week’s Class 2A poll, probably raised some eyebrows across the state with its 18-point win over Logan, which has received votes in the Class 4A poll several weeks this season. The Kings have won five games in a row and haven’t suffered a loss since Dec. 13 against Hamilton Heights.
