Indian Men Split with Rudyard


The Newberry men’s basketball team hosted the Rudyard Bulldogs in a rare Saturday matinee as a make-up game for last Thursday’s contest that was postponed.

Unfortunately, the Indian Varsity is still searching for a victory, going down in defeat 69—55, despite a 33- point effort by senior George Sevarns.

Sevarns scored every Newberry point in the first quarter with two treys and four two-point field goals. The Bulldogs held a onepoint advantage, though, when the quarter closed.

Rudyard began to pull away from the Indians early in the second quarter as the Bulldogs controlled the rebounds at both ends of the court.

By the time the first-half buzzer blew, Rudyard enjoyed a 37—26 advantage and it just got worse during the second half of play.

The Bulldogs had built a 52—35 lead going into the last quarter.

Jaylen James contributed eight points, Casey Wendt and Ethan Edwards four each, Jackson McCudden three, Blake Jordan two and Andre James one.

The Indians played it close with Rudyard until the fourth quarter, when they began to pull away.

The score was tied at 10 at the end of the first eight minutes.

The Bulldogs held a twopoint advantage, 22—20, at the half, but Newberry reversed the trend to lead 35—29 going into the final quarter and ultimately won 49—40.

Carter Smithson and Austin Troop led the Indian JVs with 14 points each. Jordan Blake added eight, Sebastian Landenberger four, Aiden McPhearson three and Jared Wallace, Logan Depew and Brayden Taylor all scored a twopoint bucket.

Nathan Walling scored 12 and Spencer Piippo 10 to lead Rudyard.

Newberry travels to St. Ignace this Thursday, January 11, and then goes to Cedarville January 16.
