Junior leads Medora to win over Cardinals

Tribune staff reports


Roy Edwards posted 28 points for the second straight game on Saturday in helping the Medora boys basketball team defeat Washington Catholic 54-48.

“He has lost some weight, about 11 pounds,” Hornets coach Andrew Evertts said of the junior post player. “He’s getting to the rim. He’ll settle for jump shots sometimes, and he can make them, but the more he gets to the rim, the more dangerous he is.”

The score was knotted at 16 after one quarter before Medora outscored the host team 12-8 in the second quarter. Washington Catholic pulled within 38-35 going into the fourth quarter, but Medora held on down the stretch.

“They stuck with it, and we finally played hard for 32 minutes,” Evertts said. “I’m just proud. Wins are hard to come by, so we’re pretty happy. I feel like we’re starting to play decent basketball here at the end of the season, but we’ve still got a ways to go.”

Corey Hansen scored 13 points for Medora, while Bryce Cockerham had 11.

T.J. Hill scored 27 points to lead the Cardinals (2-18).

The Hornets are 2-16 going into Tuesday’s home game against South Decatur.
