Giants sweep weekend doubleheader

Coach Don Carlisle cites two reasons for the his Ben Davis boys basketball team going 2-0 this weekend.

“Energy and defensive responsibility,” he said. “I thought our kids played aggressively for the first time all year.”
The Giants beat Pike 62-58 Friday night and followed that with a 62-47 win at Southport Saturday to even their record at 2-2.
“I believe we are trending in the right direction, young guys are forced to mature by playing and they are starting to respond,” Carlisle said. “Dillon Moore was able to play for the first time and we are 2-0 with him.  He brings scoring, rebounding, defense and toughness.  Zane Doughty had career highs in scoring (11), rebounds (12), and blocks (5) on Friday night,  Clay Butler, and Trevor Nibbs had a great influence on our wins as well.”
In addition to the varsity winning both games, the entire program went undefeated over the weekend with two junior varsity and freshman wins as well.


Ben Davis went 1-3 at the Shamrock Duels on Saturday, beatig Zionsville 58-15 and losing 80-0 to Cropwn Poiunts, 43-30 to Fishers and on criteria after tying Homestead 36-36. The Giants have senior night this Thursday at 6 p.m. against North Central.
