Southwestern 36, South Ripley 31- 2A Sectional 45 Semis

Versailles- Considering Southwestern had soundly defeated South Ripley by 29 in late January, many were skeptical whether the rematch in Friday’s Sectional 45 semifinals would be any better.  It absolutely was.  But the Raiders bid to upset the state’s top ranked 2A team came up short as the Rebels escaped Versailles with a 36-31 victory.

South Ripley coach Tyler Theising and his Raiders came in with a plan to slow the game down and limit the number of possessions available to the fourth highest scoring team in Indiana high school boys’ basketball.  But for that plan to work to its fullest, the Raiders also needed to get the most out of their possessions.  In many cases, they did and that helped shape a very close, competitive game.

But in the end, Southwestern’s team defense and the offense from an ailing Tyler Kramer, pushed coach Jerry Bomholt’s boys into Saturday’s championship.

Reportedly, the senior guard has been battling an illness for about a week that has been more difficult to shake than a Rebel defender.  Tyler Kramer was held to just five points on Tuesday and didn’t seem quite T.K. like.  He didn’t get the start Friday but gutted out a great second half offensive performance which was instrumental in his team’s advancement.

In the opening quarter which saw four lead changes, South Ripley’s Bryce Franklin scored all seven of his team’s points including a triple which provided the hosts a 7-5 advantage at the stop.

Down 11-7 early in the second, Southwestern went on a 7-0 run to put the Rebels up 14-11.  Several times after that, South Ripley cut the deficit to one but never went back in front.

The first half ended on a three at the buzzer by Southwestern’s Matthew Williams who led all scorers at the break with eight points.  Franklin had seven for South Ripley although some scoring sources may have shown him with nine.

Story continues.
