Bronchos survive in OT, 53-51

January 27, 2013
Lafayette Jefferson High School



After struggling to find a way to win for the first two months of the season, Lafayette Jeff has found one.

The hard way.

With the Bronchos playing their third straight overtime game, Peter Ripke capped a double-double with a big overtime performance in a 53-51 victory over Delphi at Crawley Center on Saturday.

“We’ve come so far from the beginning of the season to now,” said Ripke, who had five points and three rebounds in overtime and finished with 14 points and 11 rebounds. “These late games will help us come sectional time. We know we’ll have all those close games at the end of the season, so it will be in our favor.”

The Bronchos (6-9) lost to Anderson in double overtime two weeks ago, then slipped past Harrison in overtime last weekend. Saturday’s game was the tightest yet, with neither team leading by more than four points and most of the final three quarters being played within a single possession.

“We don’t finish it out in regulation, but we come out and finish it out in overtime,” said Jeff forward Tyler Buchanan, who contributed 12 points and six rebounds.

Delphi (10-4) had a chance to win in the final seconds. Coming out of a timeout, Northern Kentucky signee Cole Murray attempted a 3-pointer but missed. Ricky Windell rebounded but missed a putback attempt. Senior reserve Blake Walters rebounded under the basket and was fouled before the buzzer sounded.

Walters went to the line with a chance to tie, but missed his first untimed free throw.

“To execute in this environment in an end-of-game situation where it’s do or die, I’m very proud of our kids,” Delphi coach Michael Lewis said. “We had a great look and it just didn’t go down.”

The Bronchos left plenty of points on the rim with missed layups and bunnies. Yet they also defended well, forcing Murray to earn his 16 points on a 3-for-18 shooting night.

The Oracles came into the weekend shooting 41.8 percent on 3-pointers but made 8 of 22 (36.4 percent) in a loss at West Lafayette and 7 of 28 (25 percent) against Jeff.

“We just had some unlucky rolls out of the rim,” said Delphi senior Ricky Windell, who earned his first start of the season and responded with 11 points and 10 rebounds. “It was just bad luck for us. We always shoot high 40s and this week, we just couldn’t get shots to go down.”

Brent Hawn hit four 3-pointers and scored 14 for Delphi. Devin Haney’s eight points and six rebounds off the bench were critical for the Bronchos, who won back-to-back games for the first time.
