No. 6 Bulldogs spoil Lion Senior Night

RUSHVILLE — A 17-9 run in the fourth quarter allowed Class 3A No. 6 Batesville pull

away from the Lions and post a 57-43 victory on Rushville’s Senior Night

in Memorial Gym for John Riddell and Hunter Orme.

“We are proud and grateful to have both these young men in our program the

last four years,” Coach Brian Bowen said. “They have played an important

role in our team’s success the past couple years.”

Batesville improves to 15-1 on the season and the Lions fall to 7-10.

The Bulldogs led at every break, including 40-32 at the end of the third

quarter. Rushville’s Orme scored to open the fourth quarter and the Lions

were just down six with plenty of time remaining in the game. Batesville

then went on an 8-2 run. Quinn Grimsley started the spurt and Nathan

Longstreth capped it to give the Bulldogs a 48-36 lead.

The Lions were able to cut the deficit to eight with less than three

minutes to play. Two Nate Niehoff free throws and a free throw by Nate

Hoeing had the deficit down to 49-41. Batesville’s Bryan Hoeing completed

a traditional three-point play to end any hope of Lion comeback as the

Bulldogs went on to the 14-point win.

The Lions opened the game with four straight points – two on the inside

from Cameron Cox and two from Hoeing. Batesville’s Wesley McKinney scored

five straight to put the Bulldogs on top midway through the opening

quarter. The Bulldogs added two more 3-pointers in the frame to grab an

11-10 lead heading to the second.

An Orme dunk opened the second quarter and ignited the Lion faithful, but

Batesville answered with a 3-pointer by Grimsley, two buckets by Bryan

Hoeing and dunk by Mike Hoeing to grab a 20-12 lead. The Bulldogs never

trailed again.

Two Niehoff free throws stopped the Batesville run, but Blake Walsman hit

from long range to again extend the Bulldog lead. Rushville’s Nate Hoeing

drained a left-corner 3-pointer at the half-time horn to cut the deficit

to 25-17.

Bryan Hoeing’s steal and dunk opened the third quarter. The Bulldogs built

their lead to 15-points, before a Bryce Dye 3-pointer for the Lions cut

the deficit to 12. Buckets by Niehoff and Alex Yurack had the Lions within

eight at 40-32 heading to the fourth quarter where the Bulldogs put the

game away.

Niehoff led the Lions with 18 points and seven rebounds. Nate Hoeing had

seven followed by Orme six, Riddell five, Dye three, Yurack two and Cox

two.  Bryan Hoeing had 22 for the Bulldogs.

Batesville made it a sweep by taking the junior varsity game 39-36. Matt

Moorman and Bo Gowan both had 12 points to pace the Bulldogs. Ricky

Thompson scored 16 to lead the Lions.

The Lions host Centerville Wednesday in a rescheduled game.
