It was a busy night for boys basketball action as Forest Park, Northeast Dubois and Heritage Hills were all in action on Thursday evening.
Here’s a brief rundown of Thursday’s boys basketball games.
Jeeps 53, Warriors 43: After a loss to Paoli on Tuesday, the Northeast Dubois boys basketball team bounced back with a Blue Chip conference victory over North Knox on Thursday.
The Jeeps were in full control during the first half as they held North Knox to just seven points at the halftime break.
The Warriors did score more in the second half but Northeast Dubois kept up their offensive presence and hindered any chance of a Warrior comeback.
Reece Bauer led the Jeeps with 20 points, Ethan Ziegler finished with eight points and Lane Knies ended up with seven points.
Patriots 81, Pioneers 55: The streak continues to get longer for the Heritage Hills boys basketball team as they won their 14th straight game with the road victory over Boonville last night.
The Patriots jumped out to a 27-10 after one quarter of play and pushed the lead to 43-22 at the halftime break.

Murray Becher led Heritage Hills with 24, Simon Scherry added 19, Cole Sigler finished with 16 and Blake Sisley totaled 13.
Wildcats 69, Rangers 48: Evansville Mater Dei jumped out to a seven-point lead immediately and never looked back as they defeated Forest Park in Ferdinand on Thursday.
The Rangers were still in striking distance as they headed into the final quarter of play, trailing 55-42. But Mater Dei used a 14-6 advantage in the final period to pull away for good and end any hopes of a Ranger comeback.
