              SHELBYVILLE, Ind. – Junior Kaleb Ferrell converted two crucial fourth-quarter buckets Friday night (March 7) as the Bloomington North boys basketball team rallied past Columbus North 56-49 in Class 4A Sectional 14 at Shelbyville.

              Senior Saikou Jallow tossed in a team-high 17 points to pace the Cougars (13-8), who earned a spot in the sectional final at 7:30 p.m. Saturday (March 8) against Bloomington South (15-7), a 55-45 winner over Columbus East.

              Classmates Grant Sims and Tyler Truesdel each scored 10 points for BN, while Connor Bayse chipped in seven points. Ferrell and Malik Lafoon contributed six points apiece  for the Cougars.

              Senior Elliott Welmer notched a game-high 23 points for the Bull Dogs, who saw their season end at 20-6. Junior Josh Speidel had a double-double with 12 points and 14 rebounds, while junior Trent Larson tallied 13 points.

              Columbus North raced to a 25-12 lead in the first quarter, hitting 11 of its first 12 shots en route to the big lead. The Bull Dogs held a 33-24 edge at the half – Welmer scoring 13 points, Speidel 10 points and Larson nine at the midway point.

              The Cougars closed their deficit to 47-41 at the third stop, then held CN to just two points over the final eight minutes as they rallied to prevail. Ferrell’s back-to-back buckets gave BN a 51-49 lead with just more than two minutes to go, and the Bull Dogs were unable to score over the final 4:20.
