Heritage Hills 55, South Spencer 41: The Patriots (13-3, 6-0) have won eight games in a row, and that continued Saturday at Pocket Athletic Conference rival South Spencer. Senior Murray Becher is now 10 points away from breaking Roger Kaiser's North Spencer scoring record. Becher has 1,540 points in his career.

The Pats were the only local team to win Saturday, and they return Thursday at home against Boonville.

New Albany 59, Jasper 42: The Wildcats (12-3) could not make it 10 wins in a row. Their streak was snapped on the road. The Wildcats were in a 16-9 deficit after one and never could catch up. Jasper shot 3-for-12 from the 3-point line. Senior Jackson Kabrick was the only Wildcat in double figures, scoring 12 points.

Jasper can return to the win column Thursday when it hosts Barr-Reeve.

Wood Memorial 53, Northeast Dubois 52: The Jeeps (11-6, 3-2) came up just shy of a bounceback win on Saturday, losing to Blue Chip Conference opponent Wood Memorial by a single point.

The Jeeps will try to get back on track Thursday at Barr-Reeve.
