Who will win NCAA title?

By Bill Barrows


Almost every week, I have lunch with a few of my cronies. We discuss sports, current events, social issues, maybe politics will rear its ugly head periodically, but it mostly revolves around sports. This time of year, we discuss spring training baseball, NBA basketball, the upcoming NFL draft and the NCAA basketball tourney. The basic rules are: information is essential, statistics are helpful and opinion is welcome but probably will be challenged. It’s always a healthy discussion with a few personal barbs thrown at any deserving participant.

LAFAYETTE -- The Southwood Knights avoided a hangover from an emotional win over host Lafayette Central Catholic on Friday night, returning Saturday to rout Frontier 96-42 to claim their second sectional championship in as many years.


“We got that year of experience last year, winning the Oak Hill Sectional,” Southwood coach John Burrus. “That’s kind of carried us in this year’s sectional. Our guys know the course now and they know what it takes. They knew we had to come out tonight and knock Frontier out. We weren’t going to back into this one. We wanted to force the issue.”

Hoosier Hysteria has arrived

By Bill Barrows


The boys’ basketball regular season is done. Over the weekend, amid all of the flu and other ailments that seem to come around this time of year, there is a certain sickness in the air that only surfaces in Indiana and has done so over 4 or 5 generations for which there is no cure. Hoosier Hysteria is the name and tournament basketball is the game. It all begins on Tuesday night.
