Southport boys basketball edges Columbus North 61-59 in OT

Columbus North High School



    INDIANAPOLIS -- Junior Malik Bennett came up with a steal and layup with two seconds left in overtime Friday night (Jan. 31), lifting host Southport to a 61-59 boys basketball victory over Columbus North.
    The visiting Bull Dogs (13-4, 2-1 Conference Indiana) led most of the way, including a 15-point advantage midway through the third quarter. But the Cardinals (8-6, 3-1) closed their deficit to 49-40 at the third stop, then rallied for a deadlock at the close of regulation before pulling out the decision in overtime.
    Bennett topped Southport with 22 points, while 6-10 sophomore Joey Brunk contributed 14 points and freshman Paul Scruggs had eight points.
    Junior Josh Speidel led CN with 33 points. Senior Elliott Welmer chipped in nine points, while senior Evan Henry netted eight points.
    The game was the nightcap of a girl-boy doubleheader, the CN girls winning 85-57 in the opener.
    The Bull Dogs' boys freshman team also played a preliminary game, Columbus North taking a 47-43 decision over the Cardinals in overtime. Alex King scored 13 points, while Spencer Fairbanks had 10 points to pace CN.
    The Columbus North boys return to action on Saturday (Feb. 1) when they host Whiteland (6-9) in a tripleheader. JV and freshman games begin at 6 p.m. and the varsity will follow about 7:30 p.m.
