Once again, the Scoop has made the trip to Knightstown and the gym where scenes from the movie “Hoosiers” were filmed. And once again, it it 120 degrees in this tiny little place packed with nostalgic hoops fans and players who are too big and rambunctious for this size court.
It actually makes for fairly interesting basketball. The pace is relentless, the contact inevitable. Right now, Mr. Basketball Tyler Zeller (Hickory) and Robert Goff of Broad Ripple are going at each other. Nice matchup.
Of interest to our local readers: Alex Guyton, the North star who is bound for Purdue, dominated the girls’ game even though Hickory ultimately lost 101-97. She led here team with 26 points and probably had double-digit rebounds and at least five blocks. Impressive all around.
Garrett Butcher, the Butler-bound Edgewood star, is playing for Terhune right now while two players who are invited walk-ons for Tom Crean’s first team, Kory Barnett and Daniel Moore, are playing for Hickory.
