Defense creates offense as Ball State downs Saint Louis at home

“How many times did you see two or three white jerseys [Ball State] crash in the air,” head coach Brady Sallee said. “Not on the floor, in the air, going after rebounds. That is a team that cares.” Sallee was not wrong, the Ball State Women’s basketball team was crashing in the air with each other, diving on the ground, and going to get every rebound possible. It was a significant factor in the Cardinals' win over Saint Louis 85-51.

Ball State beaten by Duquesne buzzer-beater

Jaylin Sellers takes the handoff and goes straight to the basket for a layup plus the foul. He drains the free throw to give Ball State Men's Basketball a two-point lead with 12 seconds to go. Duquesne makes its way up the court, scrambling to either tie or win the game. Ball State defends their matchups well until Tre Clark III gets the ball on the left wing. He dribbles and shot fakes, but Jarron Coleman doesn’t bite. It doesn’t matter. He shoots it anyway. The buzzer sounds and the basket is good. The Dukes win, 78-77.

"I want to thank Ball State for taking a chance on me when no one else believed in me," Steele said. "The coaches, players and staff have been more than great to me for the last two years and I'm so thankful for the friendships that I have made and I will cherish them forever."


Cowan defeats Tri-Central 84-71

The second quarter was not much different with both teams scoring 17 points a piece. Groves talked about the shooting performances from the two schools. “I thought both teams were going to reach 100 [points],” he said. “They shot lights out and we shot pretty decent in the first half.” But after halftime, the Blackhawks stepped on the gas pedal and did not look back. They scored 29 points in the fourth quarter, 15 more points than the Trojans. Junior guard Timmy Watson was instrumental in the comeback.
