  • Hansen's double-double leads Guerin over North Central
    Guerin Catholic took advantage of a 16-2 run in the fourth quarter that propelled the Golden Eagles to a 72-62 win over the North Central Panthers. 

    Guerin (12-7) was without junior, and fourth-leading scorer, Luke Godfrey, who suffered a high ankle sprain in the fourth quarter of Thursday's victory over Indianapolis Memorial Scecina. 

    “I was proud of our guys, they made a few mistakes but overall stayed composed and attacked the basket and paint in the final period,” said Guerin head coach Pete Smith in an email. "With only a day to prep for North Central, and then to find out Friday at practice that we'd be without Luke … it was great to see Bernie (McGuinness) answer the bell and bring Luke's toughness on the court when he was in.”

  • Longtime coach reflects on program's 200th win

    Last Friday, the Golden Eagles won the 200th game in program history with a 75-60 victory over rival Lafayette Central Catholic. 

    “People weren't beating down the door to play us, because we had no tradition, and they didn’t know what to expect,” Smith said. “To get where we’re at — to be able to build a great schedule — and to be able to win against the opponents that we’ve won against … is really cool."

    “We’re trying to approach it one quarter at a time,” Roth said. “We’ve had some really good halves over the season, but getting four quarters put together …. we’ve had difficulty.”

  • Guerin headed to state

    Guerin Catholic is headed back to the State Basketball Finals for the first time since 2012, when the Golden Eagles celebrated the school’s first state basketball championship.

    No. 11 Guerin (21-8), which shot 70 percent from the floor on its way to pounding Vincennes Lincoln 64-42 in the Southport Semistate on Saturday, will meet No. 18 Griffith (19-3) in the Class 3A State Finals on March 28 at 6 p.m. at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

  • Carmel has the best defensive credentials of the three Hamilton County schools playing in today’s boys basketball regionals.

    The third-ranked Greyhounds also were among the dest defensive teams when they won back-to-back state championships in 2012 and 2013.

    They are No. 1 again in defense in the Marion Regional.

    Ironically, Carmel is last in offense at 53.4 at Marion.

    Will it be the best defense vs. the best offense in the final?

    No. 4 Homestead, the defending Marion Regional champion, averages 70.9 points. Homestead also allows 51.3 points, the most in that regional.

    Yep, defense wins championships. Usually, that is.

    Will it this time?

    It’s a tough field.

    The teams have combined for 92 wins and only 11 losses, led by Homestead’s 25 victories.

  • The Guerin Catholic High School girls lacrosse team pulled out a 10-9 decision over host Zionsville on Tuesday night.

    The junior varsity Golden Eagles also defeated Zionsville 9-4.

    "We knew this (Zionsville game) was going to be an extremely tough game coming in. They have a very potent,’’ said Golden Eagles varsity coach Brian Billand. “I challenged my seniors to take control (in the second half).

  • The semistate countdown has begun for coach Pete Smith and his Guerin Catholic basketball team.

    I mean, Saturday will be here before you know it.

     

    The Guerin-Vincennes battle, set for 6 p.m. at the Southport Fieldhouse, should be a dandy.

    Both teams mirror one another in some ways, and statistically they are oh so close.

     

    Guerin averages 62.2 points; Vincennes averages 58.0.

    The Golden Eagles allow 53.3 points; the Alices are a little better at 51.4.

     

    Guerin Catholic is 20-8 and Vincennes 21-6. At neutral sites, the Alices are 6-0, and the Golden Eagles are 7-2. Both of those losses came to ranked teams in the Noblesville Holiday Tournament.

  • Guerin set for success

    Guerin Catholic High school has had a lot of practice cutting down nets in the Greencastle Regional.

    It’s the site of all three of the Golden Eagles’ regional championships, including the past two.

    Sharpen those scissors. There are no guarantees, but you gotta believe that coach Pete Smith’s talented crew has visions of another clipping ceremony on Saturday.

    The Golden Eagles surely feel good about it. Their fans have to feel good about it. The student body, one of the best when it comes to hollering and supporting their boys’ school program is a all about energy!

    First up for No. 11 Guerin is 9-game winner Lebanon, then likely No. 8 Tri-West. Neither can match Guerin in the difficulty of schedule, though Tri-West is close. The Golden Eagles rank No. 42 overall in Sagarin Ratings and No. 4 in Class 3A, and Tri-West is No. 47 and No. 6.
