PREP BASKETBALL: Falcons, Warriors clash again

NECC rivals always put on good show for fans

(Continued)

Leading scorers for the Falcons were Brock Goeglein 12 points, Line 10, Josh Stephen nine and John Stack seven.

“Playing a second time makes it easier for scouting,” Yoder said. “Fairfield is a good shooting team from the perimeter and they usually shoot better at home. We have to be ready to handle their screens. We have multiple scorers to cover and if that isn’t enough Joe Line is an excellent at penetrating to the basket.

“We expect to see some zone defense from them. We have to execute and get good shots against whatever type of defense they use.”

First place in the NLC will be at stake on Saturday when the Northridge Raiders (10-2, 3-0 NLC) entertain the Elkhart Memorial Crimson Chargers (6-6, 3-0).

Northridge’s two losses this season are both to the Penn Kingsmen. The second one was by a 78-66 score last Tuesday. Nate Ritchie netted 25 points, Pete Smith 12, Sam Ahonen and Kurtis Hochstetler both eight for the Raiders.

Dimitri Giger is averaging 15.6 points per game for the Chargers.

“We have to quickly put the Penn loss behind us,” Northridge coach Ronnie Thomas said. “This is not only a game that is important in the NLC, Memorial is also a potential sectional opponent. We have to be ready for a fight.

“Giger is leading the team in scoring, but the Chargers have other scoring options.”

Also on the NLC slate, the Concord Minutemen (7-3, 2-1 NLC) host the Warsaw Tigers (9-4, 2-1) on Friday.

Concord is coming off a 44-42 win over Elkhart Central on a last-second shot by Ramon Johnson who finished with a game-high 24 points. Filip Serwatka chipped in with 17.

The Tigers topped Central 71-37.

“Warsaw beat up on Central pretty good,” Concord coach Steve Austin said. “Warsaw is shooting well, rebounding strong and of course they are well disciplined.

“We have got to take care of the ball and limit our turnovers. We need to handle their full-court press. It shouldn’t bother us, but it seemed to in last season’s sectional loss to the Tigers. But one of the most important things we have got to do is develop some other scorers. You are not going to win many games with two or three players scoring.”

  • Pyrenees please Nibali, Rogers in Tour Stage 16 BAGNERES-DE-LUCHON, France — The Pyrenees on Tuesday lived up to their reputation for causing ups and downs at the Tour de France: A French rider climbed in the standings, an American went down, and an Australian rebounding from an ordeal of doping suspicions won Stage 16 in a downhill breakaway. Riding in his 10th Tour, three-time world champion Michael Rogers of Australia won his first Tour stage behind savvy racing, well-paced riding and the absence of his Tinkoff-Saxo Bank leader Alberto Contador. The Spaniard crashed out in Stage 10, inadvertently freeing up Rogers to go after the stage win.
