Columbus North beats Lawrence Central 75-68 in boys basketball

January 4, 2013
Columbus North High School



    COLUMBUS, Ind. -- Junior Elliott Welmer and sophomore Josh Speidel led four players in double figures Friday night (Jan. 4), sparking the Class 4A No. 8 Columbus North boys basketball team to a 75-68 victory over visiting Lawrence Central.
    The 6-8 Welmer scored 18 points with three rebounds, while the 6-7 Speidel contributed 17 points with eight rebounds for the Bull Dogs (10-1, 2-1). They were complemented by senior Sawyer Glick with 11 points, senior Tori Jackson with 10 points, junior Evan Henry with nine points and senior Garrett Larson with eight points.
    Senior DaVonte Harris poured in a game-high 28 points for Lawrence Central (2-5, 1-2). Junior Devin Heath-Granger chipped in 11 points for the Bears.
    Columbus North led most of the way, taking a 21-16 edge at the first stop and a 38-30 advantage at the half. The Bull Dogs pushed the count to 57-47 at the third stop and led 62-47 early in the final period. But the Bears rallied to within four late in the game before a Larson layup and some free throws helped push the final margin to seven.
    The teams split the sub-varsity games.
    Sophomore Trent Larson scored 19 points and classmate Kooper Glick netted 15 as Columbus North took a 56-49 win in the JV game. Junior Christian Glass chipped in nine points and freshman Mitchell Kelley tallied eight for the Bull Dogs. Freshman Mekhi Biffle paced Lawrence Central with 13 points.
    In the freshman game, Zachary Dunagin scored eight points and Malik Brownie netted seven as the Bears prevailed 34-32. Collin Lollar scored 16 points and Payton Kelsay had six for the Bull Dogs.
    Columbus North returns to action on Saturday (Jan. 5) when it visits Jennings County for a tripleheader. JV and freshman games begin at 6 p.m. The varsity game will follow the JV about 7:30 p.m.
