RICHMOND VS ANDERSON (BOYS PREVIEW)
The toughest portion of the NCC boys schedule begins on Friday night at Anderson. The Indians and Red Devils are both 3-1 in the conference so a win is critical if either team plans on winning a conference title. Richmond is coming off an impressive come from behind win at Marion, while the Indians lost to Kokomo 69-64 after leading at the intermission. The Indians beat FW Snider last Saturday 71-63 to improve to 13-3. In the win over Kokomo, Jalin Beard led a balanced scoring attack with 20. Guard Lemon added 17 and Trey Boyd added 12. Head Coach Joe Luce calls Lemon and Beard “two of the better guards Richmond will face this season”. Boyd scored 20 against FW Snider, Lemon had 19 and Beard poured in 16. Luce said “Anderson will bring it to us for a full 32 minutes, so we better be ready to match their (Anderson’s) intensity”.
