Berries come back for win against Kings

Logansport rallies past Lewis Cass at county tourney

Logansport’s boys basketball team rolled to double-digit wins in its first two games of the season.

But on Tuesday night the Berries had to mount a furious fourth-quarter comeback to get past rival Lewis Cass.

The Berries finished the game with a big run to beat the Kings 77-68 at the Logansport Savings Bank Invitational at the Berry Bowl.

“I felt like we got outplayed probably three-fourths of the game, but fortunately for our guys they hung in there,” Logan coach Pat Skaggs said.

The Kings (1-1) led 66-61 with 3:20 remaining after a putback basket by freshman Evan Ohman.

Andrew Wamsley then grabbed an offensive rebound and hit 1 of 2 free throws for the Berries (3-0). Travis Palmer rebounded the miss and scored to make it a 2-point game.

“Travis Palmer came in and gave us a major lift there. He kind of energized us,” Skaggs said. “His offensive rebound putback for us there was the best play of the year so far. That was a huge play.”

Cass coach Jon Kitchel called timeout at that point with his team still in the lead.

“We said we were going to run weave. We were in the double bonus. We had our best free throw shooters in,” he said. “We came down and took a poor shot, and things just kind of went downhill from there.

“We’ve got to be smart and when we get a lead to close things out. We’ve got good ball-handlers and good free throw shooters.”

Carter Skaggs hit the go-ahead 3 with 2:22 remaining to give the Berries a 68-67 lead.

On the Berries’ next possession, Andrew Wamsley scored on a three-point play off an in-bounds pass to make it 71-66 with 1:26 remaining.

Blake Hadley quickly scored to make it a 3-point game before Matt Jennings scored on a drive and later hit two free throws to give the Berries a 7-point lead with 24.7 seconds left and they were able to hold on from there.
