Pacers, Shiners upset Knights, Tigers- River Town Classic Round 1

Aurora- History was made Thursday at the 2019 River Town Classic. For the first time in 19 years of the boys’ tournament, both ORVC schools defeated the two EIAC schools.

In each game, the ORVC teams were statistical underdogs according to the Sagarin Ratings.  In game one, Switzerland County was a 16-point dog with South Dearborn (including a 3-point boost for home court).  The Pacers beat the Knights 71-68.  In game two, Rising Sun was an 8-1/2 point underdog to Lawrenceburg.  The Shiners topped the Tigers 55-47.

The fabulous run of 11 consecutive final appearances and four straight championships for Lawrenceburg, both tournament records, came to end.

The tandem of games were seen live as part of our Highpoint Health Basketball Webcast Schedule and can be seen again in 720p HD by clicking here.  (Note- due to a technical glitch, the first game was not captured in HD until about one minute left in the third quarter.  The HD file contains the exciting fourth quarter of game one and all of game two. The original mobile webcast file contains all of both games.)

In the first game, coach Kevin Reinhardt’s Knights led 21-13 at the end of the opening period despite eight points put in by the Pacers’ Damian Breeck.  That was just the beginning of a big night for the junior guard.  Teammate Coby Chase sank a 3-ball.

South Dearborn got balanced scoring throughout the evening.  In the first frame alone, seven different Knights scored.  Both Alex Shackelford and Isaiah Jefferson posted four points while Ethan Getz and Chris Moeller hit a triple.

Down 11 early in the second quarter, coach Adam Dennis’ crew from Vevay cut the deficit to one, 24-23.  But SD held on to a 35-30 edge into the break.

The key to South Dearborn’s lead were 16 points scored off 13 Switzerland County turnovers.  The key to the Pacers effort to stay in the game were the 17 points turned in by Breeck.  Of the eight players who scored over the first 16 minutes for the Knights, both Shackelford and Moeller recorded six points.

Story continues.
