Warriors Pull out 80-76 Victory Over County Rival Austin
Wednesday, November 21, 2018
Whenever a team opens a basketball season there is some "pressure" and expectation to start the campaign well. Add to this a heated county rivalry, a road affair in Mid-Southern Conference play and a series that dates back 133 games, you might be asking a little too much for a season debut.
But that was the case on Wednesday night when in a packed Austin High School gym the visiting Scottsburg Warriors defeated the host Austin Eagles 80-76 in a pulsating affair that went right down to the final seconds. Junior swingman Nick Sebastiao led the Warriors with 25 points and freshman forward Hayden Cutter had 24 including 19 in a huge second half. The Eagles were led by sharp shooting senior guard Drew Buhr who had a game high 38 points including 21 in the first half.
This 134th meeting of these Scott County rivals more than lived up to expectations.
The game started off fast for both teams as the Warriors built a 11-4 margin before some full court pressure bothered Scottsburg as they took a 24-20 lead at the end of the stanza. Sebastiao had 12 points and Buhr 11 respectively to pace their squads.
The second quarter saw Austin go on a 9-3 run to grab a 29-27 lead and they expanded that margin by as many as seven points, taking a 43-36 edge with 1:55 to go until the half. The Warriors however, closed with a flurry and trailed 43-40 at intermission. Austin outscored Scottsburg 23-16. Buhr continue his hot shooting with 10 points while the Warriors were led by sophomore guard Treyton Owens with five.
The second half showed Scottsburg starting quickly on an 8-0 run to go ahead 48-43 with just under six minutes remaining in the quarter. Austin took the lead back 51-50 at the 3:05 mark before a pair of 3's and a lay in by Cutter gave the Warriors a 58-52 advantage. Austin responded with a three pointer and Cutter scored again on a lay in at the buzzer as Scottsburg took a 60-55 margin heading into the final period. The Warriors outscored the Eagles 20-12 in the third quarter as Austin had three 3-pointers and two free throws. Buhr was limited to five points while Cutter exploded for 11 on mostly strong post moves and Sebastiao had nine, including two trifectas.
Sebastiao picked up his fourth foul early in the 4th quarter and after a trey by Buhr the Eagles trailed 60-58 with 6:49 to play. The Warriors led 70-65 after lay ins by Cutter and senior guard Mitchell Prince with just under 4:00. But the Eagles came right to tie the game at 70-70 near the 3:00 mark. Sebastiao reentered the game only to foul out moments later with the scored tied at 72-72. Austin took its last lead of the game after a pair of free throws at 74-72 with 2:31 to play. From that point on senior guard Jimmy Neace made a pair of free throws to tie the game at 74-74 at 1:55 to play and after the Warriors forced the Eagles into a turnover, Cutter converted on two more from the charity stripe to give Scottsburg the lead back at 76-74 with 1:48 to go. After an empty Eagles possession, Neace made one of two free throws at 1:29 to play before Austin made two free throws at the 1:00 mark to pull back within two points at 77-76. It would be that last scoring of the game for Austin.
Senior guard Patrick Lincoln scored his only two points in the game coming with 35 seconds to play on a strong inside move after the Warriors fought off full court pressure from Austin. The most important possession of the game had Scottsburg taking a 79-76 lead. After a miss by Austin, Neace was fouled and made one of two free throws as the Warriors hung on for a 80-76 win. Austin outscored Scottsburg 21-20 in the final period.
Neace had 10 points making three key free throws down the stretch. Prince had nine points, with six coming in the final quarter and was a huge key defensively while also distributing the ball inside getting his teammates say looks. Owens had eight points while sophomore guard Noah Smith scored two points. Lincoln's two points were arguably the most important of the game. For the game the Warriors were 16-26 from the free throw line and made six 3-point field goals.

WARRIORS DEFEAT MSC FOE EASTERN (PEKIN) 109-51
Tuesday, November 27, 2018
After a close road win last week against rival Austin, the Scottsburg Warriors boys basketball team felt like they needed to "tighten up" some things defensively heading into Tuesday's matchup with the Eastern Musketeers.
The Warriors apparently did that and then some forcing numerous turnovers and defensive rebounds fueling their fast break, posting a 109-51 Mid-Southern Conference victory on the road in Pekin. The win moves Scottsburg to 2-0 overall and 2-0 in MSC play while the loss dropped Eastern to 1-1 overall and 0-1 in the MSC.
Some six Warrior players scored in double figures led by sophomore guard Treyton Owens with 27. Senior guard Mitchell Prince had 17, followed by senior guard Jimmy Neace and freshman forward Hayden Cutter with 16; junior swingman Nick Sebastiao with 13 and sophomore guard Ryan Gibson with 11 points. Sophomore guard Noah Smith also contributed nine points. The Musketeers were led by junior guard Rhett Pennington who had game high honors with 29 points including nine three's setting a single game Eastern record. Pennington made five of his trifectas in the final period.
"Our team really worked hard in practice to clean some things up defensively," said third year head coach Brent Jameson. "It showed in our transition offense off turnovers and rebounds as we were unselfish, looking for the open man. Treyton Owens had an excellent night not forcing his shot, getting into the flow and going hard to the basket. Jimmy Neace set the tone early defensively for us. Mitchell was steady as usual. All of our guys did an excellent job of getting a body on someone when rebounding, especially Nick and Hayden. Happy about the balance of our play and the contributions of some of our younger guys, such as Ryan Gibson and Noah Smith."
The first quarter had Scottsburg holding a 14-7 lead at the 4:44 mark, and by the time the quarter was complete the Warriors had gone on a 17-5 run to take a commanding 31-12 edge as Owens scored 16 points.
The second quarter had Scottsburg only allowing Eastern five points while scoring 23 and taking a 54-17 advantage into the intermission. Cutter paced the Warriors with eight points in the quarter.
The third period had Prince hitting two trifectas early on as he would net 10 points in the stanza while Sebastiao went to work inside on the glass for nine. Scottsburg outscored Eastern 31-7 in the period as the Musketeers had two 3's by Pennngton and one free throw and didn't score a two-point bucket. The Warriors led 85-24 after three quarters.
The final period was high scoring with Eastern netting 27 points behind Pennington's 17 point fourth quarter which included five three-pointers. Scottsburg had 23 to close out its 109 for the game.
Scottsburg plays its home opener on Friday night, Nov. 30 at historic Meyer Gym against MSC foe Charlestown at 7:30 p.m. Eastern plays Friday, Nov. 30 at West Washington at 7:30 p.m.
WARRIOR NOTES: The 109 points was the first time Scottsburg has scored over 100 points since the 2004-5 season and most points scored since the 2000-2001 campaign. . .The Scottsburg junior varsity team upped its record to 2-0 with a 61-35 victory over the Eastern JV in the preliminary game.

Utilizing defensive pressure and a balanced scoring attack, the Scottsburg Warriors made it three straight victories by posting a 63-46 Mid-Southern Conference decision Friday night against the Charlestown Pirates at historic Meyer Gym.

Scottsburg is 3-0 overall and in MSC play while Charlestown dropped to 1-2 overall and 0-2 in MSC action.
"I was proud of our defensive effort," said Scottsburg head coach Brent Jameson. "Near the midway point of the first quarter until halftime we held our opponent to seven points. We weren't happy with our start in the second half but Charlestown made a strong run to get back into the game. I thought our team grew up a lot in this win to hold an opponent off and regain control of the game. Hayden was strong again inside and makes such good decisions when he has the ball. Jimmy has been shooting the ball fantastic. Overall a solid team effort."
The "Pressure Cooker" lived up to its name as the Warriors held the Pirates to just 14 points in the first half, including a four-point second quarter. Charlestown opened the game with a 7-6 lead but then back to back three's by senior guard Mitchell Prince and Neace put the Warriors up 10-7 and gave them a lead they would never relinquish.

Owens and junior forward Nick Sebastiao both got buckets to start the second quarter and Charleston hammered a trey of its own to make the score 23-13 at the 5:20 mark, but Scottsburg would close out the remaining time on a 10-1 run, ending with a Neace three-ball at the buzzer for a 33-14 halftime margin.
The third quarter had Charlestown going on a 9-0 run to cut the Warrior lead to 33-23 with 6:20 to go. But Scottsburg got control of the game with an 18-9 run to end the quarter led by three trifectas by Neace to give the Warriors 51-32 advantage.

BROWNSTOWN CENTRAL DEFEATS SCOTTSBURG 57-35
The Brownstown Braves used a stingy defense and a balanced offense to grab a road win beating the Scottsburg Warriors 57-35 on Friday night in a Mid-Southern Conference affair from historic Meyer Gym.
The loss was the first of the season for Scottsburg, now 3-1 overall and in MSC play. Brownstown improved its record to 3-0 overall and 2-0 in the MSC.
The Braves were led by senior guard Michael Boshears who had a game high 18 points and senior forward Issac Johnson who had 13. The Warriors were led by freshman forward Hayden Cutter with 9 points and sophomore guard Treyton Owens with 7 points.
The game started slowly for both teams as Brownstown ended the first quarter leading 12-9. But the second quarter was all Braves as they limited the Warriors to just two free throws, jumping out to a 28-11 advantage and a lead they would never relinquish.
The third quarter had Brownstown going on an early 11-0 run, to take a 39-11 edge before senior guard Jimmy Neace hit a 3-pointer. But the damage had been done and the Braves expanded its lead to 47-20, outscoring the Warriors 19-9 in the quarter.
The fourth quarter saw the Warriors get some transition scoring and out pointed the Braves 15-10 to close out the game.
"I was disappointed with our play in the first two-and-a-half quarters," said Scottsburg head coach Brent Jameson. "We didn't execute what we had worked on in practice. Brownstown dictated the pace of play and our shot selection was terrible. I was pleased with our effort and getting back to our style of play starting midway thru the third quarter and in the fourth quarter. This is a tough lesson for our kids but we need to continue to work hard and improve."
Scottsburg will host 2A Providence on Saturday (Dec. 8), while Brownstown will also host a non-league opponent in 2A South Ripley on Saturday.
Warrior Notes: The Scottsburg JV team dropped its first game of the season losing to Brownstown 51-43...The 1968-69 Warrior team that went 20-0 in the regular season making it all the way to Semi-State 50 years ago and posting a 25-1 record was honored between the JV and varsity game.

WARRIORS FALL TO CORYDON CENTRAL 83-79 IN OVERTIME
Friday, December 14, 2018
The Scottsburg Warriors let a 17 point halftime lead slip away as the Corydon Central Panthers used a huge second half scoring binge to register a hard fought 83-79 overtime home win in a Mid-Southern Conference shoot out Friday night (Dec. 14).
The Panthers were led by a pair of 30 point performances as seniors Joey Wiseman and Bradley Nalley combined for 69 points, netting 35 and 34 respectively. The Warriors were paced by freshman forward Hayden Cutter with 24 and junior forward Nick Sebastiao with 16. Sophomore guard Treyton Owens had 12, while senior guards Mitchell Prince and Jimmy Neace had 11 points each. Junior forward Brantley Deaton had 5 points in his first action of the season for Scottsburg.
The win moved Corydon Central to 3-3 overall and 2-0 in MSC play. The loss dropped Scottsburg to 4-2 overall and 3-2 in MSC action.
"Obviously a disappointing tough loss to let a team back in the game when we had such a large lead," said Warrior head coach Brent Jameson. "Too many turnovers and missed opportunities throughout the game, especially defensively. We let their two best players score 69 points and we then became hesitant on offense. After games we take the approach: 'what could we have done better' as individuals and a team. I need to have our group better prepared for the situations we faced tonight. We will regroup and get ready for the Scott County Tournament next week."
The game was a tale of two halves as Scottsburg jumped out to a commanding 38-21 lead at the intermission with solid defense and a superior rebounding effort. Wiseman had just 5 points while Nalley had 13 to total 18 of the Panthers 21. But the second half would tell a different story.
Scottsburg would still maintain a 13 point lead after three quarters as the Corydon Central offense began heating up. The Panthers opened the final quarter on an 10-2 run to close within 59-54 at the 5:15 mark. After Neace scored on a put back to put Scottsburg up 66-60, he fouled out moments later, midway thru the quarter. The Panthers closed the gap to 67-66 with just under two minutes to play, before the Warriors went ahead by 5 points, 72-67, behind Deaton's 3-ball and a driving layup by Sebastiao assisted by Owens. It would be the final points of regulation for Scottsburg as Wiseman and Nalley rallied Corydon to a 72-72 tie as time expired.
Overtime began with Corydon taking its first lead of the game since midway thru the first quarter, at 74-72. Sebastiao would then foul out early in the overtime. Scottsburg grabbed the lead back with 1:20 remaining at 79-77, but would then lose Cutter with 5 fouls. The Panthers scored the final six points of the game. Wise and Nalley netted 9 of the 11 points scored by Corydon in the extra period. Scottsburg had opportunities to come back in the waning moments, but committed untimely turnovers.
Wise, held to 5 points in the first half, exploded for 30 in the second half. Nalley had 21 second half points as the pair netted 51 of the Panthers 62 after intermission.
Statistically speaking, Scottsburg had 21 turnovers while the Panthers committed 13. The Warriors shot just 50% from the free throw line making 14-of-28, while Corydon hit 27-of-44 charity tosses. Scottsburg had 9 three-pointers with Neace and Prince getting 3 each.
WARRIOR NOTES: The Scottsburg JV squad is now 5-1 under coach Dustin Marshall as the Warriors defeated Corydon, 50-49 in overtime. Noah Smith hit the game tying field goal in regulation, while Jordan Myers had the game winning 3-pointer with 2.5 seconds to play in the OT. . .Senior guard Mitchell Prince had a tough night for the Warriors as he played thru Friday's game with a stomach flu bug. He was still able to score 11 points. . .
Next game for Scottsburg is Thursday (Dec. 20) at home in Meyer Gym against South Central (Elizabeth) at 7:30 p.m. in the opening round of the Scott County Invitational. The Warriors will also play on Friday and Saturday against opponents and at times TBD in the historic "Pressure Cooker" during the three day event.

"It was an ugly game at times, but I am proud of our guys and how we executed on the defensive end. Nick Sebastiao picked us up in the second half with his scoring. Mitchell Prince played thru an injury and made numerous plays for us that don't show up in the stat sheet. Our team is balanced and sharing the ball. This is a fun group to coach."
The game was tied early in the opening period at 3-3, but Scottsburg expanded that to 14-5 with 1:41 to go.

Each team scored 9 points in the rugged defensive battle.

NEW ALBANY SNAPS SCOTTSBURG SIX GAME WINNING STREAK 54-38
Saturday, January 2, 2019
Hopefully the Scottsburg Warriors learned some valuable lessons in its 54-38 home non-conference loss Saturday (Jan. 12) to the 4A New Albany Bulldogs of the Hoosier Hills Conference.
It certainly was a tough defeat in front of the home crowd at historic Meyer Gym as the Warriors saw its six game winning streak abruptly stopped. Scottsburg dropped to 10-3 overall, while New Albany improved to 7-5. The lessons delivered from a more experienced team should only help the Warriors in its remaining regular season schedule.
Freshman forward Hayden Cutter led Scottsburg in scoring and rebounding with 18 points and 11 boards, connecting on 8-15 from the floor with an impressive "double-double." He was joined by junior swingman Nick Sebastiao with 10 points, 6 rebounds, 3 steals, 2 blocked shots and 2 assists Senior guard Mitchell Prince had 6 points on two three-pointers while sophomore guard Treyton Owens scored 4 points. Only four Warriors scored in the game. The Bulldogs were led by Derrick Stevenson with 16 points and Landen Sprigler with 8, while six other players contributed points in the New Albany balanced attack.
"I was pleased with the approach and effort our team had in this game," said Warrior head coach Brent Jameson. "We didn't execute well enough at times, but a team such as New Albany dictates much of that. They were quick and physical as expected. I feel we competed well and were just a few plays away from narrowing the gap even more. Our team will regroup and continue to improve."
Scottsburg grabbed a 4-0 lead to open the game before New Albany went on an 8-0 spurt. The quarter ended with the teams tied, 8-8. The second stanza was all New Albany as the Bulldogs outscored the Warriors 24-8 in the period with defensive pressure and transition points. New Albany took a 32-16 lead into halftime.
The third quarter had the Bulldogs increasing their margin to 22 points before Scottsburg made a run, cutting the margin to 12 at 44-32. The Warriors outscored New Albany 16-12 in the period as Cutter had 8 points. The final stanza had both teams digging in defensively, but Scottsburg went cold as New Albany scored the first 8 points of the quarter to extend its lead to 20 points early on. The Bulldogs would not score again, but the Warriors would get no closer than the final 16 point margin. Both teams tallied 22 points in the second half.
New Albany forced 13 Scottsburg turnovers resulting in 21 points. The Bulldogs had 17 points in its transition game. Those same statistical areas, usually a positive for the Warriors, told the story in the defeat. Scottsburg had 6 points off 9 New Albany turnovers and just 7 points from its transition game. Combine that with 16-45 field goal shooting (36.0%) along with 2-14 (14.0%) on three pointers and you have a recipe for a loss.
Statically speaking. . .Scottsburg was 4-8 (50.0%) on free throws; 28 rebounds (11 on offense); 8 assists; 5 steals; 2 blocks; 13 turnovers and 9 fouls. New Albany was 22-49 (45.0%) from the field; 5-21 (24.0%) on three's; 5-7 on free throws (71.0%); 30 rebounds (9 on offense); 10 assists; 7 steals; 4 blocks; 9 turnovers and 12 fouls.

WARRIORS GET 68-60 MSC ROAD WIN AT CLARKSVILLE
Friday, January 18, 2019
Led by freshman forward Hayden Cutter's 17 points, the Scottsburg Warriors had four players score in double figures, made 7-of-8 free throws in the final minute of play and held off the host Clarksville Generals, 68-60, Friday (Jan. 19) in a Mid-Southern Conference game.

Rounding out the scoring for the Warriors was senior guard Jimmy Neace with 8 points landing two 3-balls and junior guard Brantley Deaton netting six with strong inside play.
"We need to give Clarksville a lot of credit with their game plan," said Scottsburg Head Coach Brent Jameson. "They spread us out and we had trouble guarding them with their quickness, penetration and dribble drive. They are an improved group and well coached. With that said, we still found a way to win. It is a great quality of this Warrior team. Treyton (Owens) made some big plays and was physical the entire game. Hayden (Cutter) fought thru some foul trouble and still found a way to get his points. We did a good job against their press and we limited our turnovers and made our free throws."
The game started slowly for both teams with Clarksville taking a 13-12 lead after the first quarter. The second quarter had Scottsburg building a 26-21 advantage before the Generals closed the half on a 5-0 run as both teams headed into the intermission at 26-26.

DEFENSE PROPELS WARRIORS TO 54-46 WIN OVER SEYMOUR
Saturday, January 19, 2019
The Scottsburg Warriors basketball team prides itself on the ability to play a relentless pressure defense. But after allowing 21 first quarter points of a non-conference affair against the 4A Seymour Owls of the Hoosier Hills Conference, the Warriors found themselves with much work to do.
The story had a happy ending for Scottsburg as they allowed just 25 points over the remaining 3 periods, including 6 in the final quarter, to post a 54-46 come from behind victory over the Owls on Saturday (Jan. 19) in historic Meyer Gym.
Scottsburg was led by sophomore guard Treyton Owens who had a game high 22 points as the Warriors didn't gain control of the game until early in the final quarter. He was joined by freshman forward Hayden Cutter with 13 and junior swingman Nick Sebastiao with 12.
Seymour was led by junior guard Eric McCoy with 9 points, all on 3's early in the first quarter. Junior forward Montana Suits had 8 points for the Owls.
The victory moved Scottsburg to 12-3 overall while Seymour dropped to 3-11.
"It was another night that we didn't play well to start," said Warrior head coach Brent Jameson. "Our defense broke down giving Seymour some early open looks. Give them credit for a good game plan. They hit several shots early and we made it hard on ourselves. But we found a way to win. We dug ourselves a pretty big hole and fought back. Our pressure was good, especially in the second half. Treyton (Owens) has been so consistent, crashing the glass and defensively with pressure and trapping. There aren't many games you can shoot 12-40 (30.0% ) from the field and win. We need to continue to improve if we are going to be a Sectional contender."
Seymour came out of the gates quickly in the first quarter with its 21 points on 5 trifectas to grab a 21-11 lead. The Owls led at one point 13-2 before the Warrior offense got untracked.
The second quarter started the defensive comeback for Scottsburg as they held the Owls to 10 points on two field goals and six free throws. The Warriors won the stanza 16-10 as Owens paced the team with 10 points, but Seymour still led 31-27 at the break.
The third quarter opened with Cutter converting a three point play and Owens scoring to give the Warriors a 32-31 lead with 6:50 to play. Seymour responded with four straight points. Scottsburg went cold from the field and the Owls increased its lead to 6 points at 40-34 to end the quarter.
Early in the final quarter Seymour built its lead to 8 points before Cutter made two free throws cutting the Owls lead back to six at 7:21 to play. After Owens was fouled, a technical was assessed to Seymour and turned the games momentum to Scottsburg. Owens hit all four of his free throws and on the ensuing possession Cutter hit two more from the charity stripe to knot the game at 42-42 with 6:24 to play. Owens buried a three-ball off the left wing with 4:35 to go followed by senior guard Jimmy Neace's two pointer to expand the Warrior lead to five points. Seymour would never get closer than three points the remainder of the game as Scottsburg was 11-14 of from the foul line to secure the win. In the final minutes.
