(webcast) So. Dearborn 49, Rising Sun 32- Rivertown Championship

Aurora- A 13-4 first-quarter effort by South Dearborn in Saturday’s Rivertown Classic championship propelled the host Knights to its first title since 2013.  SD defeated Rising Sun 49-32.

This game was part of our St. Elizabeth Dearborn Basketball Webcast Schedule and can be seen again in HD by clicking here.

Defense was the story as the pressure applied by coach Matt Coleston’s Knights greatly limited the effectiveness of Shiner shooters. The Sun hit on just 19 percent of its shots (9 of 47).

There was very little Rising Sun coach Brandon Snodgrass could do.  SD’s defense was overwhelming.

The Knights led 24-15 at the half and 37-22 after three quarters.  The advantage peaked at 20 during the fourth before the final spread settled on 17, 49-32.

Our Southeastern Indiana REMC Power Players of the Game were South Dearborn’s Eli Hoffman and Tobie Teke.  Hoffman had game highs of 18 points and nine rebounds.  Teke turned in 11 points plus four assists and four steals.

Hoffman was named Rivertown MVP.  Teke, Reese Willoughby and Quentin Stevens also made the All-Tournament Team.  Willoughby collected eight points and eight rebounds in the title game.
