Logan boys power past Twin Lakes, move to 8-1

MONTICELLO — Logansport’s boys basketball team improved to 8-1 with a 70-52 win at Twin Lakes Saturday night.

The Berries’ 8-1 start is their best since the 2009-10 squad that featured Nate Champion and Jared Jennings started 13-1.

It was the Berries’ first road win of the season after suffering their only loss of the season to date at Anderson on Dec. 20.

“We’ve been very fortunate to play in the friendly confines of the Berry Bowl, so it was nice to get on the road and play and get a win on the road,” Logan coach Pat Skaggs told WSAL in a postgame interview.

Carter Skaggs had a double-double of 19 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Berries against the Indians (3-5).

Freshman Matt Jennings, playing against his uncle Kent Adams’ squad, added 12 points in the win. He and Skaggs drilled three 3-pointers apiece.

Andrew Wamsley and Jalen Adaway each scored 11 points. A.J. Smith just missed on being the fifth player in double figures with nine points.

Coach Skaggs was happy to see that type of balance.

“I think that’s a huge key to our team in continuing to try to take the next step. So really as a coach you’re always glad to see that,” he told WSAL.

He was also happy to have Smith back after he had missed a couple games with a badly sprained ankle.

“I can’t say enough about getting him back. He’s a real asset to our team,” Skaggs said. “We obviously missed him last weekend and especially at Anderson. It’s nice to get him back and get him back into the flow. It looked like he was moving really well.”

Cody DeBoy led the Indians with 16 points. Dane Holmes had 10, and Tyler Reddington, Jordan Crouch and Bailey Rothrock each added nine.

“Twin Lakes has a couple kids that are easily capable of scoring 20 points on a given night, Reddington and the [Cameron] Bennington kid. I thought our guys did a really good job of always being conscious of where those two guys were at in the zone,” Skaggs said.
