Forest Park 65, Wood Memorial 52: The Rangers (12-7) had lost six out of eight heading into Tuesday's road game against the Trojans, but put that losing on hold with a 65-52 victory. This snapped a two-game skid, and while they've seen more losses than wins the past month, they still have yet to lose more than two in a row this year. Sophomore Drew Howard led the team with 18 points, followed by junior Blake Hagedorn's 15 and sophomore Landon Nalley's 14. 

Forest Park has not won back-to-back games since Jan. 3-4, but the Rangers will try to break the mold Friday at Pocket Athletic Conference rival Heritage Hills. The Rangers are 3-2 in PAC play this year.

North Daviess 50, Northeast Dubois 43: The Jeeps (11-9) have suddenly lost five in a row after winning five in a row. None of these losses have been by double-digits, but some were a 3-pointer away from victory. They have not won since a 55-48 triumph Jan. 25 against Springs Valley.

Senior Reece Bauer was the only Jeep to get in double figures with a team-high 13 points. Bauer and his teammates will try to snap this skid once and for all Friday at home against Perry Central for homecoming.
