Zionsville wins season opener

Indianapolis — The last two times that Zionsville and Brebeuf have met in basketball on the eve of Thanksgiving the teams have played overtime affairs. It is no surprise that No. 17-rated Zionsville found itself in another close game with the Braves Wednesday night on the road.

The Eagles led by just two points with just under a minute to play when Andrew Dakich got a critical score and breakaway layup to help seal a 55-50 victory. The layup was part of a 15-5 closing kick in which the Eagles held Brebeuf scoreless for nearly four minutes.

“We just had to take care of the ball and move the ball,” Zionsville coach Shaun Busick said about the closing run. “Credit Brebeuf. They did a good job of turning us over tonight and they did a great job on the offensive boards. We also got a little more ball movement at the end and scored on some cuts and some drives.”

In a game that featured seven ties and seven lead changes the Braves took their largest lead of the night at 45-40 when Andrew Terrell hit his third 3-pointer of the game with 4:36 left. That was the last basket Brebeuf would get for four minutes and one second as Zionsville went on an 11-0 run to reverse that lead.

Dakich started the run with a pair of free throws before Michael Sollman tied it at 45-45 on a 3-pointer with 3:37 left. Scotty Peñola then put the Eagles in front for good at 47-45 when he scored on a short jumper with 2:56 left.

The teams traded a few possessions, but Brebeuf had the ball down 47-45 with just more than a minute to play when Dakich pressured the ball at the top of the key and forced a steal. He would score on a breakaway layup to make it 49-45, and Dalton Judd would hit 6 of 6 free throws to seal it the rest of the way.
