Barons stymie Eagle shooter

Saturday, March 02, 2013 08:51 am
DeKalb senior guard Adison Daub's heroics late in Friday's IHSAA Class 4A Sectional game at Carroll earned the Barons a trip to the sectional championship game tonight.

Here were five keys to the win:One of the area's leading scorers concluded his high school career with just three points, mainly because of DeKalb's constant hounding of the perimeter sharpshooter. He finished 1-of-6 from 3-point range.The sophomore forward did not get much pub in postgame due to the crazy final seconds, but deserves kudos for a 19-point, six rebound effort in the win, matching Columbia City physically inside.There were several instances in which Columbia City was up a few baskets and seemed close to going on an extended run that could put the game away, but each time DeKalb had an answer.Both teams did not turn the ball over much, but DeKalb finishing with just six turnovers helped keep empty possessions to a minimum.Even Coach Jon Everingham admitted it after the game that you have to be fortunate at times to win games. DeKalb looked dead to rights when the whistle blew with 2.5 seconds left and the official signaled charge, but the other official called a block. The Barons had the possession arrow, giving them the ball back. Without the block call or the possession arrow going the Eagles’ way, the game is in all likelihood over.
