  • HAMMOND | Bowman Academy has speed, athleticism and quickness that can't be duplicated. Just ask Gary Hayes. The Griffith coach thought his team was prepared to play the Eagles in Friday's sectional semifinals. Then the Panthers turned the ball over 26 times in the first half and went 6 of 14 from the free-throw line. Bowman, who used 12 players with 11 of them scoring, will face Lew Wallace for the Class 3A Clark Sectional title at 7 p.m. today at the Hammond Civic Center. The Eagles beat Griffith 80-44 and Wallace topped Gavit 66-58.

  • ST. JOHN | It lived up to the hype. Times No. 1 Bowman topped No. 2 Lake Central on Friday night in an instant classic in which both teams controlled parts of the game before the Eagles came out on top 63-58. "It was a good game. I loved it," Bowman coach Marvin Rea said. "It was good for the fans, good for the region." Bowman came into the game ranked No. 9 in the state coaches poll, while L.C. was No. 12. The Bowman defense was the difference down the stretch. The Eagles forced 32 turnovers in the contest. "I told my guys, we've got 13 starters. Most teams don't have 13 starters, so we're going to keep the pressure on," Rea said. "Thirty-two minutes of hell is what we're going to give anybody." The Indians (3-1) jumped in front early and led 17-6 after the first quarter. Bowman clawed back in the second quarter, even leading in the final minute, but a Wideman steal and breakaway dunk and a Matt Meneghetti 3-pointer put L.C. up 33-23 at the break. "We played the worst first half of basketball we could ever play," Rea said. "I told them to just stay together, play together, remain disciplined and stick to what we do well, and sooner or later they'll break." The Eagles hit their free throws when they had to in the final minutes. Arthur Haggard made two with 9.4 left on the clock to close out the victory.

  • GARY | Kankakee Valley needed only three hits to put an early end to its 10-0 five-inning win over Bowman on Saturday at U.S. Steel Yard. "We didn't hit the cover off the ball, but we were opportunistics a little bit today," coach Doug Greenlee said. "There were a couple of high fly balls that dropped. That helped. Those were tough plays." In the Eagles' (0-1) first game of the season, Bowman officially had four errors, but allowed several balls to drop that could have been caught. "The only disappointment I had was my veteran ballplayers and some of the mental mistakes they made," Bowman coach William Outlaw said. "All the runs were off errors, so once we correct the mental mistakes I think we'll have a great season."
