Boys Varsity Basketball · Hawks start new year with easy win

Hebron got off on the right foot in the new year with a 62-29 Porter County Conference rout of winless LaCrosse on Saturday at the Hawks Nest.

“The entire team played well,” Hawks coach Mike Grennes said. “We have been focusing on getting a better start to our games and we did that. Our defense also was solid all night. It is really good to get three in double figures and I thought Logan was aggressive on both ends of the ball. He attacked the rim on offense and did a great job of rebounding the ball on defense.  Griffin (Moore) had a great game and held LaCrosse’s top scorer (Ben Garwood) to seven points. Always good to get a conference win!”

Hebron (5-4, 1-2) took command with a 22-4 first-quarter lead and cruised from there, allowing just 13 second-half points.

Moore led all scoring with 22 points on 8-of-10 shooting inside the arc, with Logan Zacarias right behind, posting 19 points on (9-of-11 tw0-point shooting) and eight rebounds. Reece Marrs added 14 points and five rebounds.
On Senior Night, Hebron seniors Matt Clark contributed to the win. Matt Clark notched three points and five rebounds, while Drew Grennes filled the stat sheet with six assists, five rebounds and three steals.
As a team, the Hawks dished out 16 assists and came up  with 12 steals.
