Boys’ Basketball Tournament Results – Indy, Brentwood & CPA

Brentwood High and Independence both won their Sectional games Monday night, taking them to the State Conference in Murfreesboro.

Indy v Mt Juliet

For Independence, this is the first time the school has made it to state. But it almost didn’t happen for them. They struggled in the first half against Mt Juliet to find their rhythm and for awhile it didn’t seem like they were going to be able to pull it off, but they came into the second half energized and rejuvenated. Final score was Indy 55 Mt Juliet 47.

Brentwood v Clarksville NE

Brentwood played Clarksville North East Monday night and it was a true underdog victory. They also didn’t play great in the first half, trailing 23 to 31 and eventually dropped to 11 points behind in the third. But the Bruins didn’t give up. They rallied and won 55 to 47.

Who Independence and Brentwood play next will be determined by a blind draw Tuesday evening at Murphy Center in Murfreesboro.

CPA v Maplewood

CPA’s run for the state is over ofter a loss to Maplewood.

Here’s a recap from CPA:

The first quarter was choppy for both teams as they both failed to convert multiple times, but the Panthers did seem to have the upper hand with all of the second chances they got due to offensive rebounding. The Panthers continued their offensive rebounding trend as the Lions failed to match their intensity on the boards. Clay Washburn and Drew Scott did their best to keep their Lions in the game in the second quarter but the Panthers were relentless offensively as they took a 24-15 lead going into halftime. Most of Maplewood’s first half success came from offensive rebounding and sound defense. The Lions just weren’t able to catch the Panthers off guard with their plays like they were against most opponents.

With contributions from Drew Scott and James Deaton, the Lions were able to tie the game up at 33 early in the third quarter. From then on the game was constantly going back and forth as the Lions and Panthers continued to trade buckets. Maplewood went on another small run but the Lions kept it in check with help from Dean Cooper as he tied it up at 45 with under two minutes left. Somehow in the final five seconds the Lions had the ball in a three-point game. However, a last second buzzer-beater rattled out of the rim as the Panthers won the game 52-49.”
