The two teams will be North Central Conference opponents again next year and could meet at the McCutcheon Sectional this season.
“They’re not a bad basketball team. They’re playing hard and they’re getting the ball up the floor and they’re hitting the boards hard,” Hoover said. “He’s got them playing hard. They played very well tonight.”
The Berries travel to the historic Muncie Fieldhouse Saturday for a 1:30 p.m. matinee against the Central Bearcats. The Bearcats are 4-3 overall with NCC losses to Kokomo and Anderson but were without the services of 5-10 sophomore Jayla Scaife, who already has offers from Ball State, Butler and Indiana. Hoover said Scaife will be back from injury for the game on Saturday.
“If we’re not at the top of our game, Muncie will beat us. They’re a good team,” he said. “We’re going to have to play as well as we can play.”
