Coach John Blackwell’s boys from the Burg led once in the second quarter and last tied the Tribe at 21-all.  From there, the visitors from Ripley County netted 12 of the final 14 points of the half to lead 33-23 at the break.

Milan hit 63 percent from 2-point range in the first half and outrebounded Lawrenceburg by seven.  The Indians spread actually could have been larger had they faired better than 3 of 10 shooting at the free throw line.
