FARMERSBURG — Because of an addition to the schedule, the North Central boys basketball team ended up playing three games in three nights.
On Thursday, the Thunderbirds defeated host Martinsville, Illinois 60-53 despite 31 points from freshman Dalton Rawlings.
“We dropped Cloverdale and added Martinsville,” said North Central coach Jacob Cummings. “As it turned out, the only day they could play the game was Thursday.
“I didn’t really like having to play three days in a row. We ran out of gas at the end of the Riverton Parke game and then had to face a very physical North Vermillion team on Saturday.”
On Friday, North Central couldn’t overcome 28 turnovers as the T-Birds lost to visiting Riverton Parke 63-57. They had a 10-point lead in the second quarter and were up nine in the third.
North Vermillion outscored the host Thunderbirds (2-11) 36-24 in the middle two quarters on their way to a 62-50 victory on Saturday night.
Against Martinsville, Ty Thompson (18) and Bryton Suggs (13) combined for 31 points for North Central while James Roberts, Chase Wiseley and Jacob Pritchard each scored nine.
Wiseley recorded a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds against Riverton Parke.
Pritchard scored 13 points off the bench.
“Jacob is one of those kids who does whatever you ask him to do,” said Cummings. “He has continued to improve and get better, especially of late.
“It is good to see him step up and contribute off the bench.”
Suggs added 11 points for North Central while Dawson Basinger grabbed 10 rebounds.
Thompson also scored 10 points.
Avery Briddick scored 19 points and 11 rebounds to pace Riverton Parke. Jonathon Virostko 19 points including the four clinching free throws.
Brandon Hazzard (12) and Ryan Steelsmith (nine) combined for 21 points. Hazzard had four steals and Steelsmith was credited with three.
North Central defeated Riverton Parke 51-33 in the JV game.
Trevor Eppert led North Vermillion with 25 points while Jonathon Kilgore added 15.
Thompson (16), Wiseley (11) and Roberts (10) combined for 37 points against the Falcons.
North Central will play at Bloomfield in a Southwestern Indiana Athletic Conference game on Friday.
