Prep boys basketball

Murray Becher

Hertiage Hills 81, Washington 59: The Patriots (8-3) made it three straight victories on Saturday when they got past the Hatchets on their home floor. They had three players in double digits. All-time leading boys scorer Murray Becher added on to his total with 26 points in the game. Junior Blake Sisley wasn't far behind with 24, and senior Simon Scherry added 15 in what was a shooting bonanza. The Pats connected on 10 shots from downtown.

Heritage Hills is scheduled to resume play Jan. 17 at Pocket Athletic Conference rival Pike Central. The Pats got the better of the Chargers in each of the first three years Nate Hawkins coached the team. They will hope to make it four straight both against them and in their current win streak.

Perry Central 60, Forest Park 50: The Rangers (9-2) could not make it four wins in a row on Saturday. They had squeaked out some close wins prior to the game against the Commodores, who improved to 8-4 in their season. Forest Park had three players in double digits, including sophomore Drew Howard, but it did not suffice.

Forest Park will try to get back on the winning track Jan. 17 at PAC rival South Spencer. The Rangers are riding a four-game win streak against the Rebels into this one.

Lydia Betz

Forest Park 53, Pike Central 44: The Rangers (13-6, 3-3) improved to .500 in PAC play Saturday with a win against the Chargers. Senior Macie Zink led the team with 12 points. Freshman Lydia Betz contributed 10. Betz drained a trio of 3-pointers. Forest Park came away with the way win in spite of going 10-of-21 at the free throw line.

The Rangers have now won four in a row, and will hope to make it five in a row with their third straight win against Corydon Central. Forest Park plays Tuesday on the road.
