  • Brutal 4th Quarter Hurts Valley In Non-Conference Loss
    For three quarters Tippecanoe Valley’s boys basketball team played as well as it had all season. But a brutal fourth quarter saw the Vikings score just two points, none in the last six minutes, and drop a 56-51 non-conference contest to visiting John Glenn Thursday night.

    Glenn scored the last 12 points of the game after Valley took its largest lead of the night at 51-44 with 6:05 to play.

    While it was still a one-possession game, Valley coach Chad Patrick had his team hold the ball with the intent of looking for the perfect opportunity to attack the Falcon defense. The strategy just didn’t work quite the way the coach had in mind.
