McCutcheon boys basketball spoils anniversary celebration at Lafayette Jeff

February 17, 2014
Lafayette Jefferson High School



There was one disappointing thing for Tre’Shon Heard after Thursday night’s rivalry win.

He had school the next day.

With the girls basketball sectional week forcing many boys basketball teams this week to adjust to a Thursday and Saturday schedule rather than the normal Friday and Saturday routine, McCutcheon used a 14-0 first-half run to pull away from rival Lafayette Jeff 60-40 at Crawley Center.

“Coming in here and playing against Jeff, it’s a rivalry and they are a good team, and we didn’t want to let up at any time in the game,” Heard said.

As it has relied upon this season, the Mavericks got offensive balance and a quick offensive burst to build a double-digit lead early.

Heard had 21 points to lead six scorers who had at least six points for McCutcheon. Darnell Butler contributed 11, and Trevor Lockwood was limited to eight points but had 11 rebounds and five blocks. Dionte Nunn, Nate Deno and Mark Neill had six points each.

“Knowing you’ve got four other guys on the court with you and you know they can score, if you’re having an off night, they can help pick you up,” Heard said of McCutcheon’s balance.

The Bronchos closed within 8-6 five minutes in on a David Hanyard jumper, but nine turnovers led to McCutcheon’s 14 straight points in a span of 3:21.

“Part of that was them and part of that was us,” Jeff coach Scott Radeker said. “We were real passive against the zone. I don’t know why. We’ve practiced against that 3-2 zone a lot this year and played against it a lot. They are long, and it makes it difficult to maneuver, but we didn’t attack the gaps and drive and kick and make them guard the whole floor.”

Heard scored 12 points in a first half that saw McCutcheon build the lead to 20 points.

The Mavericks’ 3-2 zone took away Jeff’s ability to penetrate. When Jeff dared to take 3-pointers, the Bronchos went 0 for 10 in the first half and became hesitant to take open looks. They finished 5 of 26.

“The thing we had trouble with in the second half was getting out on their 3-point shooters,” McCutcheon coach Rick Peckinpaugh said. “The first half, we were alert and guarded the ball a little more and got out on the right people at the 3-point line.”

The Bronchos remained on the court as the athletic department recognized the 1964 state championship basketball team, then set a goal to cut the McCutcheon lead by the end of the third quarter.

Jeff got within 15 late in the third and as close as 45-32 with 6:45 to go before Darnell Butler scored on consecutive trips down the floor for the Mavs, who won their fifth straight.

Despite the setback, Jeff got good production from 5-foot-7 sophomore guard Dan Ricksy. Ricksy led the Bronchos with eight rebounds and also scored seven points on 3-of-3 shooting. Quarin Hood led Lafayette Jeff (4-13) with 15 points.

“Dan plays bigger than he is,” Radeker said. “He did an awesome job on the boards. He did a good job finishing around the basket a couple of times. He’s one of our better defenders, and even for his size, he’s one of our better rebounders.”
