The New Castle JV Boys Basketball team got beat handley by a really talented Noblesville Miller basketball team 68 to 46. The Trojans got off to a good start and were right in the basketball game after the first quarter., but from the second quarter on it was all Millers. Offensively, the Trojans were having trouble taking care of the basketball against the pressure Noblesville put on us. The Millers caused the Trojans to turn the ball over time after time which led to easy baskets for the Millers. Defensively, the Trojans did a good job of stopping the Millers lane drives, but the Millers were hot from the outside. They hit 8 three pointers in the first half alone. The Trojans have to do a better job of closing out to shooters.
The Trojans led in scoring by Ethan Hinton and Cole Johnson both with 14 points. Clay Butler had 8 points. Cole Wheeler and Dawson Scott both added 4 points. Tyson Lewis had 2 points.
The New Castle Trojans are 7-3 on the season. The New Castle Trojans will be back in action tomorrow Saturday, January 9 at the Spartan Bowl to play the Connersville Spartans. The JV game will tip off at 6:00pm. Go Trojans!!!
