The Northeast Dubois boys basketball team ended their regular season on a high-note with a double-digit road victory over Tecumseh.

The Jeeps travelled to Lynnville on Thursday evening searching to break a four-game losing skid.

Northeast Dubois jumped out to a 12-2 lead in the first quarter thanks to stingy defense and seven early points from Lane Knies.

The Jeeps expanded that lead to 26-9 at the halftime break as they continued to limit the Braves to good looks while Logan Dodd and Marshall Knies hit key shots in the quarter.

Tecumseh started to make a run in the third quarter as they held the Jeeps to just two points. They trimmed the lead to 28-21 at the end of the period thanks to a pair of Logan Arnold three-point shots.

However, the Jeeps closed the game strong as they made 12 shots from the free-throw line to seal the victory.

Lane Knies led the way with 12 points while Logan Dodd added 10 points. The Jeeps were 21-of-26 from the free-throw line as a team.

Logan Arnold led Tecumseh with 14 points.
