It didn’t take long for Medora coach Andrew Evertts to figure out the difference in Tuesday night’s basketball game between his Hornets and the Crothersville Tigers.
“We didn’t hit free throws, and they hit a ton. We kept fouling them,” Evertts said after the Tigers won 69-58. Crothersville made 24 of 28, while Medora was only 7 for 20.
Crothersville kept a 48-41 lead going into the fourth quarter when Brian Money hit a 3-point basket, followed by a basket from Grayson Barnes to set the score at 53-41. After Corey Hansen made a layup for the Hornets, the Tigers stretched their lead to 60-43 on a layup by Tyler Banks with 3:30 remaining.
“They were in better shape, they really were,” Evertts said. “There are a lot of little things we can look at. Looking back, I probably should have called timeout when we were down two to calm us down, but we were playing so good. Free throws and conditioning, that’s the game right there.”
