McGlothin scores 12, but Lewis Cass routs Zebras in sectional opener

BY VAL TSOUTSOURIS

WINAMAC — Tristin Miller scored 21 points to lead three players in double figures, and the Lewis Cass boys basketball team avenged last year’s sectional final loss to Rochester with a 74-40 rout in a Class 2A, Sectional 37 quarterfinal at Winamac Tuesday.

Luke Chambers added 16 for the Kings, who improved to 12-11. Tyson Good had 15, including two 3-pointers in the first quarter against the Zebras’ 2-3 zone and a highlight-film reverse dunk in the third quarter.

Tarick McGlothin had 12 points for Rochester (9-13), who finished on a five-game losing streak. Luke Hunting added nine.

But the Zebras committed 16 turnovers as compared to the Kings’ eight. Rochester’s opportunities for second-chance points were also limited. Through three quarters, Rochester had only 12 rebounds as a team and trailed 60-34.

Lewis Cass starters L.J. Hillis, Chambers and Good are 6-4, 6-5 and 6-6, respectively. Rochester had no starter taller than 6-2.

Having said that, the 6-6 Good is a perimeter player, and his two early treys helped Lewis Cass to an 8-4 lead.

A Miller 3-point play, a Chambers steal and coast-to-coast drive for a bucket, a Chambers reverse layup and a back cut and layup by Fitch made it 17-4.

A Good crossover move led to a 3-point play and a Miller transition layup made it 24-7 in the second quarter, but the Zebras answered with a Tanner Reinartz 3-pointer from the right corner and two McGlothin free throws to get back within 12.

Good, who has a team-best 16.4 scoring average, picked up his second foul with 6:41 left in the half. Miller, who is second on the team with a 12.9 scoring average, committed his second foul with 3:34 left in the half.

Yet Lewis Cass extended their lead with both on the bench. Keaton Lewellan, who came in averaging 1.2 ppg, scored eight, all in the second quarter. He scored six points during a stretch in which both Good and Miller were out.

Lewis Cass then went on a 10-2 run to start the second half. Miller got a layup on a drop-down pass, Good scored in transition, and Good zipped a pass to Miller for another layup.

That led to a Rochester timeout 6:31 left in the third quarter.

After the timeout, Miller got another layup off a Haden McClain dish. He whipped a lead pass out to Good, who caught up with it and did a 270-degree spin before whipping down a one-handed dunk.

Lewis Cass, in search of their first sectional title since 2014, will play North Newton (10-11) at 6:30 p.m. Friday in the first semifinal.

In the second semifinal, Winamac will play Rensselaer. Winamac knocked off Delphi 49-34 in Tuesday’s second quarterfinal.
