Zach Gunn With Big Game, Lifts HSE Past Muncie Central
After a disappointing season in 2014-15, HSE was looking to get back on track and with a great performance from junior wing Zach Gunn, they were able to get started on the right foot. The 6'7 prospect went off from 29 points and 15 rebounds and got a 87-82 win over Muncie Central. Heading into the fourth quarter, Muncie Central had a 66-61 lead but some big baskets from Trevin Trabue and Noah Smith got them the lead and some clutch free throw shooting down the stretch sealed the win. Senior guard Greg Miller had 18 points for HSE. Seniors Phillip Corneth and Andre Jones had 23 and 13, respectively.
Northeastern Survives Overtime To Beat Monroe Central
Northeastern came into the season as one of the favorites in 2A but they ran into a test in the first game of the season. Monroe Central, who was down 37-28 at the half, used a 24 points third quarter to claw back into the game and eventually forced overtime. Northeastern, however, was too much and a 30 points outing from junior Nate Reynolds led the way. Standout guard Tyler Smith chipped in 22 points and 7 assists.

Tucker hit 5/6 from three in the first quarter. Bloomington South won 67-49 over Edgewood. Hunter Lloyd scored 14 points for BS. Brayden Patten had 15 points and 6 rebounds for Edgewood.
