Giants claim third straight sectional title


With just over four minutes left in Saturday’s sectional championship at Perry Meridian, coach Don Carlisle had a simple message for his team.

“Three more stops and three more baskets and this is over,” Carlisle told his team during a timeout. “Now go out and do it.”

That started a 12-0 run by the Giants that sealed the game. The Giants went on to win 69-51 over Decatur Central, giving Ben Davis its third straight boys basketball sectional title in Carlisle’s first year as head coach.

The Giants now face No. 3 rated Lawrence Central in the noon game this Saturday at Southport. Lawrence Central defeated Ben Davis 72-57 during Christmas break. Avon tackles New Palestine in the 10 a.m. opener with the winners returning for the 8 p.m. championship.
