Eagles win two over weekend

Through almost 20 minute of action Saturday, Jan. 11, night against Frankfort, Zionsville was doing virtually everything right on the basketball floor except making shots.

They were rebounding well, defending well, and creating turnovers, but they still trailed 30-20 with just under 4 minutes left in the third quarter.

Finally, Jake Mann connected on consecutive 3-pointers and the Eagles’ offense came alive. Zionsville outscored the Hot Dogs 37-17 over the game’s final 11:36 to earn their seventh-straight victory on the season 57-47.

“While Jake’s shots were big I felt that Chris Pappas giving us a shot off the bench was even bigger,” Zionsville coach Shaun Busick said. “Chris came in and filled the middle very well. He grew a lot over the summer and became a post player instead of a guard. He was able to come in and move the ball better in the middle than our other two big guys.”

Zionsville struggled very early on and trailed by as many as 12 on two separate occasions in the first half.

The Eagles (8-2) hit only 5 of 20 shots from the field in the first 16 minutes and trailed 15-7 after one quarter and 26-17 at halftime.

The Hot Dogs (6-4) got a great boost from Brody Kirby, who scored all 10 of his points in the first half while Chase Isgrigg had five first quarter rebounds to help Frankfort build its lead.

The Hot Dogs got in early foul trouble, however, and Zionsville was able to stay relatively close by getting to the free throw line.
