Forest Park 71, South Spencer 38: The Rangers (15-7, 4-3) were the only local girls basketball team to prevail Tuesday night. Senior Macie Zink went off to the tune of 32 points against Pocket Athletic Conference rival South Spencer. Zink nearly scored as many points as the Rebels did all by herself. Junior guard Emma Gray chipped in 10. This got Forest Park back in the win column a 52-50 loss Saturday at Barr-Reeve.

The Rangers are scheduled on Thursday to play their last regular season home game against Evansville North.

Gibson Southern 65, Heritage Hills 52: The Patriots (14-5, 6-1) took their first PAC loss of the season Tuesday night on the road. Sophomore Hadley Lytton dropped 19 points for the Pats, and junior Rebekah Gordon had 16 points and 13 rebounds, but it did not suffice. Heritage Hills has three games remaining on the regular season.

The Pats are scheduled to be back in action Thursday at home against Boonville.

North Knox 40, Northeast Dubois 38, OT: The Jeeps (5-14, 3-2) have now dropped three straight games, losing a Blue Chip Conference game for the first time since a 56-37 loss Nov. 19 against South Knox. Sophomore Hadley Fuhrman and freshman Rhylan Kalb each had a team-high 10 points. The Jeeps scored two points in overtime, while the Warriors scored four.

The Jeeps can get back in the win column Thursday at home against another Blue Chip Conference rival in Loogootee.

Reece Bauer

Northeast Dubois 66, Cannelton 48: The Jeeps (9-4) have now won three in a row, thanks largely to the production of senior Reece Bauer, whose 20 points were another game-high. Junior Lane Knies also contributed 10 as Northeast Dubois has won four out of its last five games. The Jeeps' season-high win streak is four, which they did by starting 4-0 for the first time in the Terry Friedman era.

The Jeeps are back at it Friday when they host Blue Chip Conference rival Vincennes Rivet. Northeast Dubois is 2-1 in conference play.
