Bulldogs to play for regional title

Saturday, March 09, 2013 12:04 pm
MARION – New Haven advanced to the Class 4A Marion Regional championship game with a 65-60 victory over Northrop on Saturday morning. Junior Steve McElvene was a match-up nightmare for the Bruins. As V.J. Beachem struggled with his shot for three quarters, the 6-foot-11 center kept New Haven in the game despite not leading once in the second and third quarters.

“We played hard and it was a game of runs,” New Haven coach Al Gooden said. “They would make a run then we would make a run. We just made the one at the end.”

McElvene repeatedly altered shots by the Bruins as well as several deflections. His stat line read like a video game, 24 points, 16 rebounds and eight blocked shots.

Beachem had a tough time finding his shot through three quarters, hitting two of his first 14 shots for the game. But the Notre Dame recruit found his stroke with 12 points in the final 8:40 to finish with 19 points and eight rebounds.

Northrop (19-8) led by three with 5:45 remaining in regulation when New Haven went on an 8-0 run over the course of two minutes to take a lead they would never relinquish.

When Beachem hit a pair of free throws to give the Bulldogs a 51-50 advantage with 4:34 left, it was New Haven's first lead since 4-2.

The Bruins were led by the Scott twins, who end their career as the two leading scorers in Northrop boys' basketball history. Bryson Scott had 27 points and 17 rebounds as he was ferocious attacking the basket with and without the basketball. Brother Brenton added 22 points, including five three-pointers.

New Haven (18-5) advances to play Carmel (22-2) in the regional championship at 8 p.m.
