Heritage Hills 18-2 ( 6-1 PAC ) at Tell City 13-7 ( 3-3 PAC )

Recommended Posts

This is the 52nd time Heritage Hills and Tell City have met in Boys Basketball and the Patriots lead the overall series 31-20.

Last season Tell City came to Heritage Hills needed a win  to clinch a share of the PAC title and the Patriots led 33-25 after 3 quarters  before the Marksmen outscored HH 15-8 in the 4th but fell a point shy of the title losing 41-40.

This season the roles are reversed as the Patriots are the team that can earn a share of the title with a win and the Marksmen  will try to play spoilers like HH did last season.


Patriots haven't won a conference title  since 2005 but are still tied with Southridge for most Boys Basketball conference titles in PAC history with 14 each a Patriot win and they will retake the lead.


Tell City has the top defense in the PAC as far as points given up, Marksmen only give up 44.3 ppg, Patriots are 3rd in the PAC in defense giving up 47.5 ppg.


Heritage Hills leads the PAC in offense averaging 62.3 ppg and Tell City is 9th in the PAC in offense averaging 48.0 ppg.


I'm expecting a good game between 2 big rivals.


My weekend to work so I might not be online to post about this after the game Friday night.

I’ll try to post something after the game if you can’t Dave.

I’ve seen TC twice & been impressed with their defense each time.  TC is also a relentless rebounding team when they are at their best. Those happen to be strengths of HH too.  It’ll be interesting.

I would expect both teams to be relentless playing defense.  I feel this game will come down to rebounding and which team converts their easier opportunities into actual points(my guess is those will be limited)

HH wins 29-23. Tell City made a concerted effort to limit possessions & try to slow down the Patriots. But Heritage Hills was up to the task. 

Both teams were very good defensively as expected.  Patriots were perhaps a little better as they held TC to just 35% shooting and forced 11 turnovers by our unofficial account.

Blake Sisley hit 4 huge ft’s in the final minute to lead all scorers with 11. Mitchel Becher added 8. Murray Becher battled foul trouble & finished with 6. Scherry & Jones each had 2.

Braeden Beard led TC with 8. Hunt had 5. Arnold & Blake both had 3, Lyons & Fest each had 2. 

Burying the lead a bit here, but the win ensures HH it’s first PAC boys basketball championship since 04-05 and the program’s 15th overall, the most of any PAC member.
