Pulls away after first quarter to defeat Neoga 59-42
by Keith Stewart
Saturday night’s rescheduled game had a little extra to it, as Sullivan’s boys’ basketball team visited former head coach Bob Lockart and his Indians and came away with a 59-42 win.
“It was fun,” said Sullivan coach Chester Reeder, who was an assistant under Lockart for three years before taking over this year when Lockart left to take the head coach position in Neoga. “I’ve been looking forward to this one. I’m glad we got this one in.”
The Indians got out to a good start against Sullivan, capitalizing on a quick transition game that put them up 4-0 to begin. Neoga led for most of the quarter, while the Redskins struggled to rebound early, prompting a timeout by Reeder who was visibly disappointed with his team in the huddle.
Out of the break, Neoga’s Brock Aleshire hit a jumpshot to stretch the lead to 11-6.
