A great Comet career

Douglass finishes as Caston's fourth all-time leading scorer

(Continued)

“For whatever reason we had silly turnovers and mental mistakes,” Douglass said. “We had seen a trap probably 10 times this year and we didn’t have much of an issue, but for whatever reason we had some turnovers and quick shots and didn’t handle it well in that game.

“They have the [Zack] Patton kid who ended up being the conference player of the year. He’s a good player and had some good games against us. The kid who really hurt us was [Kyle] Miller. I don’t think he hit a 3 in the other sectional games but he hit six in both games against us. When a kid does that it’s tough.”

The game provided quite an atmosphere for Douglass’ final game.

“We knew we would have a great crowd. The gym was all the way full,” he said. “I only had a couple games in my career where the gym was like that. It was special to go out like that. The whole community supported us.”

North White knocked off Tri-County 56-37 in the sectional championship game. The Vikings won their first sectional title in 30 years and defeated Culver in overtime in a regional game.

“A couple of them are my best friends. They still give me a hard time about winning on my court,” Douglass said. “But it was really cool they got to have a tournament run and I’m happy for them.”

The Vikings were one of the Comets’ home victims in regular-season play, 46-43, on Feb. 15.

“We ran the Valpo play at the end and Dustin [Offenberger] hit that shot,” Douglass recalled. “With four minutes to play we were down 10 and we got that win at the end. That was a great game too.”

The Comets were 11-2 at home, 1-1 on a neutral court and 0-8 on the road this season under first-year coach J.R. Howell.
