1/12/23 Basketball: Fall Creek 80, McDonell Macks 76

In a much-anticipated conference matchup of two state-ranked teams, the Macks (12-1, 4-1 Western Cloverbelt Conference) looked strong out of the gate but fell victim to a late first half surge by the Crickets (9-2, 5-1 WCC), who jumped out to a double-digit lead at the break.

In the second half, the home team continued to pull away, as Fall Creek led by 18 at one point early in the half. Undeterred, a veteran McDonell squad slowly but surely fought back, cutting the deficit all the way to 2 points on multiple occasions before falling just short in their comeback bid.

WOGO "RadioActive" Award Watch:
Senior guard Eddie Mittermeyer and senior forward Canan Huss were nothing but impressive once again, scoring 28 and 21 respectively, including 19 second half points for Mittermeyer, and Huss battling through foul trouble while defending the reigning conference player of the year.
