West Lafayette 8th A started strong by attacking the rim against a much bigger Battleground team but ultimately lost in a close game that went down to the wire. The Red Devils clawed back from a 31-26 deficit in the 4th by turning over the Tomahawks yet struggled to execute offensively down the stretch missing 4 consecutive free throws in the last minute of the game and shooting 2/7 from the line in the 4th quarter alone. RDP was 3/9 free throw shooting for the game. Battleground connected on 5 three point shots for the game. Carson Kitchel had 12 points and Donovan Loudermill had 11 in the loss as West Lafayette enters one of its toughest stretches of the season facing conference opponents.
In the second game, West Lafayette 8th B lost to Battleground 23-21. Cameron Greene had 7 points and Freddie Cason added 6 points. West Lafayette failed to score in the 2nd quarter and only had 1 point in the 4th quarter in the defeat.
