Olympians edge Bull Dogs 48-45 in boys basketball sectional; Columbus North closes season at 14-11

                COLUMBUS, Ind. – Senior Drew Hasson scored 14 points and grabbed eight rebounds Friday night (March 2) to lead the Columbus East boys basketball team to a 48-45 victory over Columbus North in the semifinals of the Columbus East Sectional.

                Senior Thomas Myers chipped in 11 points and seven rebounds, while junior Drew Johnson netted nine points and junior Matthew Frost had eight points and six rebounds for the Olympians (13-10).

                Senior Trey Vincent totaled a game-high 18 points with four assists for the Bull Dogs, who saw their season conclude at 14-11. Senior Jaylen Flemmons contributed 13 points and eight rebounds, while senior Bailey Hester tallied 12 points.

                Columbus North took a 12-11 edge in the first quarter, but Columbus East countered with a 14-5 second-quarter burst for a 25-17 lead at intermission. The Olympians pushed their advantage to 11 points twice in the third quarter, but Hester hit a pair of fourth-quarter 3-pointers and Vincent was solid from the free throws to help the Bull Dogs draw within three points on multiple occasions in the final frame.

                CN had a final possession down three, but Hester’s 3-point attempt was contested and batted out of bounds with less than a second to go. The Bull Dogs were unable to get a shot from their final inbound play.

                Bloomington South (24-2) and East Central (14-9) met in the second semifinal later Friday. The semifinal winners are to return on Saturday evening (March 3) for the sectional championship.
