Lafayette Jeff lets boys basketball victory slip away at Anderson

February 17, 2014
Lafayette Jefferson High School



Lafayette Jeff found the will to overcome lackluster play to open the first and second halves, but when the game was winding down, the Bronchos failed to execute at each end of the court.

Jeff (4-14) went scoreless during the final 1:46, while Anderson (8-10) dropped in nine points en route to a 58-54 come-from-behind victory Saturday afternoon.

“We didn’t have enough guts to finish the game today,” Jeff coach Scott Radeker said. “You can point to a million things. We did not make the plays in the last minute that we needed to make.”

Anderson’s go-ahead point came with 34.5 seconds to play, when Thomas Wells made the first of two free throws after Devin Haney was called for his fourth foul.

Jeff had just galloped out to its largest lead, 54-49, mostly due to the 2½-minute David Hanyard showcase.

The 5-foot-6 guard stole the ball and dished it to sophomore Darian Collins, who missed the layup and subsequent putback layup but did draw the foul and converted 1 of 2 free throws to tie it at 49 with 3:28 to play.

After a missed shot by Anderson, Hanyard corralled the rebound and drove the length of the floor for the reverse layup. On the next Anderson possession, he blocked a shot by FreSan Reese, again taking the ball coast to coast and scoring on a layup, this time drawing a foul and converting the free throw.

The Bronchos failed to score another point, missing their only two shots while committing six fouls and three of their 12 turnovers.

“We did a good job building the lead and putting ourselves in the position to win,” Radeker said. “We have to be tougher mentally and physically.”

Hanyard scored a game-high 21 points on 8-of-13 shooting. He also pulled down five boards and was a perfect 5 of 5 from the free throw line.

“He means a lot to us; he is our point guard,” Radeker said. “He did a lot of positive in the game. When he is playing well and focused, we are pretty good.”

Collins and Quarin Hood added 10 points apiece.

Thomas Wells scored 18 points to lead the Indians. He had seven during the opening three minutes to pace Anderson to a 13-2 lead that was quickly narrowed when Jeff went on a 12-3 run to close the first quarter.

Anderson held a 30-29 halftime lead, which it extended to 36-30 before Collins scored Jeff’s first field goal of the third quarter after six Broncho misses.

Jeff was 2 for 20 from 3-point range.

“We just got to get better,” Radeker said. “It is getting late, and we have to figure it out.”

Jeff has three regular-season games remaining and will host Western (11-4) on Tuesday.
