****FORMER PAOLI STAR SCOTT COMBS NAMED NEW COACH AT MARTIN METHODIST COLLEGE****

Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University Men’s Basketball assistant coach Scott Combs has been named the next head coach at Martin Methodist College, the school announced Wednesday.

According to a source close to the hiring process, Combs was ultimately chosen out of a pool of 90-plus applicants.

“My family and I are honored and proud to accept the head coach position at Martin Methodist,” Combs said in a statement. “We feel this is an excellent time to join the RedHawk family. Not only are we thrilled to get involved with the team, we are also excited to get to know the Giles County community. Our goal is to build, past and recent successes, a lasting foundation for the team to grow both on and off the court. We are very thankful for this opportunity.”

Combs leaves Clarksville after 16 seasons with the Governors –the last 13 of which coming as an assistant under APSU head coach Dave Loos.


“I’ve been working for Coach Loos in the neighborhood of 12 years and I’ll be 37 coming up,” Combs said. “I think the timing of it more than anything was the biggest factor. With Martin Methodist being a school located in a familiar region, it made a lot of sense.”

Combs takes over for Andy Sharpe, who left MMC early last month to take a position at NCAA Division II Southern Arkansas.

During Sharpe’s five seasons in Pulaski TN, the RedHawks went to the NAIA Tournament three times, advancing to the national semifinals in 2011.

****LADY RAMS LOSE IN REGIONAL FINALS TO TOP RANKED EVANSVILLE MATER DEI 59-33****

The Paoli Lady Rams with a Sectional Finals win over #4 ranked Eastern (Pekin) and a Regional semifinal victory over #6 ranked South Ripley Saturday afternoon the Lady Rams ebtered the Regional championship game on their home floor with a wealth of confidence. After wearing down their last two tournament opponents The Lady Rams found themselves ran ragged by the Lady Wildcats who had two more hours of rest than Saturday afternoon as they cruised past the Lady Rams 59-33 victory and their first Regional Title and improved to 25-1 on the season "There might be a better team around, but I don't think there was a better team tonight" said Paoli coach Dusty Cole "Not only did their two stars play well, but they got some great play from other girls and that made them really hard to handle." The Lady Wildcats length and athleticism caused the Lady Rams problems all night forcing a habndful of jumpballs and 8 first quarter turnovers tht set the tone for the night The Lady Rams started out witha 4-2 early first quarter lead thanks to baskets by Sophie Sears and Kennedy Nelson the Lady Wildcats of Evansville Mater Dei struggled early on in the 1st quarter missing on their first 6 shot attempts until Sophomore star Maura Muensterman nailed a pair of step back 3-pointers from the top of they key and had a driving layup that opened the flood gates for Mater Dei to take a 15-4 lead at the end of the 1st quarter "We really haven't gotten off to very good starts in the tournament and we knew if we knew if we didn't start playing better from the start it was going to come back to haunt us and that's what happend tonight." said Cole Lady Rams star junior point guard Sophie Sears helped the Lady Rams keep some hope alive in the 2nd by continiously driving to the basket as she has all season including the tournament but the only problem against Mater Dei rhan those other teams was the length in which she had to shoot over as 4 out of the 5 starters were 6'0" or 6'1" in height and Sears is listed at 5'8" but even with that disadvantge she still amanged to weave he way through the lane and scored 7 2nd quarter points The Lady Rams came out with intensity in the 2nd half and forced 5 consecutive turnovers for Mater Dei the Lady Rams used beautiful passing and good dribble drive ball movement from Sears to free open Senior Karson Stands for a pair of 3rd quarter bombs to keep a little hope alive in the 4th quarter the Lady Rams once agains used greally good defense passing and dribble drive ball movement from Sears and other Lady Rams to open the 3-point line for another 3-pointer by Stands and a 3-pointer from senior Ashley Forbes but it was a little too late as the Lady Rams who used tough defense throughout started to wear down from the baseline jumpers and driving of Muensterman and inside post play of Tori Schickel who had 17 points and 10 rebounds as the undersized Lady Rams late in the game gave up numerous points off of offensive rebounds Sears finished with 13 points while Stands finished with 9 points for the Lady Rams who finished with a 19-7 record

****PAOLI LADY RAMS WIN SECTIONAL 46 FOR FIRST SECTIONAL TITLE IN 32 YEARS DEFEAT (EASTERN) PEKIN IN 2 OVERTIMES 41-40****

PEKIN, IND. — The Paoli girls’ basketball team is headed back home — home to play in the Class 2-A Paoli Regional on Saturday.
Paoli junior Sophie Sears hit two free throws with 3.3 seconds left in the second overtime to lift the Lady Rams past Eastern Pekin 41-40 Saturday night in the finals of the Class 2A Eastern Pekin Sectional.
Paoli (18-6) won its second sectional and first since 1980, when the Rams also won the regional.
“It’s been a long time coming,” said Paoli coach Dusty Cole. “We’ll enjoy it the rest of the weekend. We’ll come in Monday and get to work.”
Paoli should have plenty to talk about because the regional should be one of the toughest in Indiana with three top-10 teams.
The Rams now will host the Class 2A Paoli Regional on Saturday and will face No. 6 South Ripley (21-2) in the second game, while No. 8 Sullivan (21-3) will take on top-ranked Evansville Mater Dei (23-1)in the first game at 10:00 am.
Cole said it wasn’t a tough decision to figure out who would take the last shot.
“I wanted to get her coming off the screen and going to the basket,” Cole said. “I told the team I wanted her to take the shot and get the offensive rebound if she missed. We wanted to get the ball in the hands of our best player and see what she could do.”
Sears said they’ve gone over last-possession plays all year long in practice. “Dusty (Cole) has done a great job,” she said. “He’s the best coach in Indiana.”
After Eastern’s Jocelyn Mousty hit a 7-footer and a free throw with 26 seconds left, the fourth-ranked Musketeers (21-3) retook the lead, 40-39.
Mousty, who has committed to play at Ball State, led Eastern with 23 points.
Paoli then asked for two timeouts and finally inbounded the ball with 10.9 seconds left.
Sears drove into the left corner, scooted toward the basket and took a shot from 12 feet and a foul was called on Mousty.
After Sears made both free throws, Eastern’s Emily Newcomb tried a baseball-style pass to Mousty. The pass, however, was intercepted by Paoli’s Kennedy Nelson.
“We felt like the game was going to be a race to 40,” said Eastern coach Mike McBride. “We got 40 first, but it wasn’t enough. It was a great ballgame. ... We had a few unnecessary turnovers.
“We gave it everything we had.”
Paoli needed to battle back in the second half after Eastern built an 11-point lead in the first half.
Cole said his team was guilty of standing around and watching Sears. “We were a lot more aggressive in the second half. We had to match their intensity.”
Paoli trailed 22-13 at the half, and Sears, who finished with 18 points, opened the third quarter with a 3-pointer.
“We weren’t going to give up,” she said. “We were going to keep fighting, like we have all year.”
The Rams finally reclaimed the lead with 1:40 left in regulation on a 6-footer by Nelson, a 6-foot-2 junior.
Eastern’s Newcomb hit 1 of 2 free throws with 1:32 left to tie it at 33, and it stayed that way as Paoli called three straight timeouts in the last 30 seconds.
Sears then missed a 10-footer at the end of regulation.
In the first overtime, Eastern surged ahead 37-35 when Mousty hit two free throws with 21 seconds left and Paoli came down and Nelson hit a 4-footer to tie it at 37. The Musketeers couldn’t get off a shot on their last possession of the first overtime.

It was Senior night in Paoli and emotions were high were running high. "Sometimes when that happens you don't know how exactly they are going to play." Cole said "But they were ready to go and we got real good play out of our senior."
Junior Guard Sophie Sears was under the weather and sidelined for the night but, Senior Ashley Fobres stepped in and did a great job running the point "She is getting comfortable at point guard for us." Cole said "She handled the ball great against a really good defensive player in Katelyn Rodewig, who gets down and gets after you."

***LASWELL'S HOT PERFORMANCE ENDS IN A 58-49 PAOLI LOSS TO BROWNSTOWN***

CLARKSVILLE — The Paoli Rams battled to the bitter end in Sectional 47 semifinal action at Providence High School Friday night, but could not get over the hump as the Brownstown Central Braves avenged an earlier loss to the Rams and moved on to the sectional finale with a 58-49 victory.

The Rams got past the Braves, 61-58, at Chambers Gymnasium on Feb. 7, but it proved to be too tall a task Friday night as Brownstown’s twin towers, Blaze Ayers and Taylor Wischmeier combined for 31 points and 19 rebounds to lead the Braves attack.

“We could have handled one of their big boys, but we didn’t have an answer for both of them,” Paoli coach Joe Hinton said. “The first time we played them, we got Ayers in foul trouble, but he really hurt us tonight.”

The Braves came out firing and built a quick double-digit lead (15-3) behind the play of Wischmeier and Ayers, but they could not shake the Rams, who after hitting just one of their first eight shots, came rambling back to pull within three late in the first period.

Junior Logan Laswell scored eight straight points for the Rams, pulling up for a pair of college range 3-pointers with a Brownstown player in his face and taking a nice feed off of a steal from Trent Manship to convert on the fastbreak before the Braves got a basket at the buzzer from Michael Leitzman to take a 17-12 lead into the second frame.

“Probably the biggest thing tonight was that Ayers didn’t get in foul trouble,” Brownstown coach Dave Benter said. “He only played about eight minutes the first time we played, so that made a big difference and I thought our balance was better and we took better care of the basketball.”

Ayers opened the second period with an easy bucket down low and Daniel Starr hit a 3-pointer to cut the lead again for the Rams, but the Braves managed to pull away to another double digit lead at the half (32-22) despite another barrage from Laswell, who was guarded tightly by multiple Brownstown defenders scored the final seven points of the period for Paoli.

“Their size and their zone hurt us a lot,” Hinton said. “And one of the big things was that the middle was open and we just couldn’t get anything going in there. The few times we got the ball in there I think we scored, but we just couldn’t get it there enough.”

Laswell, who hit six straight shots between the first and second quarters, misfired on all three of his attempts in the third and the Rams got just two points on a field goal by Brandon Jones at the 5:40 mark as the Braves pulled ahead 40-25 heading into the final frame.

The Rams were far from done, however, as Ethan White scored off a feed from Laswell, then Laswell turned a nice steal at halfcourt into another easy bucket before Thomas Springer hit back-to-back 3-pointers to spark a 16-3 run at the outset of the fourth quarter.

Laswell took over from there, converting an old-fashioned three-point play by driving on 3 Brownstown players, then draining another trey from the wing with a player in his face to pull the Rams back to within one with 4:42 left to play.

“We really thought if we could take care of the basketball and do a better job on Laswell, we’d have a good chance of winning the basketball game,” Benter said. “But he just really hit some tough shots. I’m not sure we defended too poorly on him, he just stepped up and hit some great shots.”

A three-point play by Ayers gave the Braves some breathing room at the 3:50 mark and the Rams could get no closer than six the rest of the way, despite 14 points in the period from Laswell, who finished with a game-high 33.

“What a game by Logan Laswell,” Hinton said. “He played his heart out and they don’t come any better than that. But you’ve got to get something out of your other kids in a game like this. Unfortunately it just wasn’t their night to hit the shots.”

The Rams finished their season with an 11-11 record.





***LASWELL SCORES 1,000 POINTS***
Paoli Rams Junior Guard Logan Laswell passed the 1,000 point mark for his career early on in a game against Corydon. Laswell looks to move up the caeer scoring charts as the Rams head into tournament play.

****RAMS LOSE TO EVANSVILLE MATER DEI IN REGIONAL FINALS***

HUNTINGBURG — The Paoli Rams saw a gallant second-half effort go for naught in the championship game of the Class 2A Southridge Regional Monday night as the Evansville Mater Dei Wildcats turned in a quality performance throughout to claim a 62-51 victory.

The Rams struggled from the start, hitting just 4 of 13 shots from the field in the first quarter, and got even worse in the second, missing their first 11 shots of the period which helped the Wildcats mount a 21-0 run, that all but put the game out of reach.

“The bottom line is you’ve got to be able to put the ball in the basket,” said Paoli coach Joe Hinton, whose club shot 18 percent from the field in the first half (5-27) and 30 percent (18-59) for the game. “We really struggled with that tonight, but I’m awful proud of the way the kids battled back in the second half. That second quarter was horrendous, but what can you say when you’ve got kids who’ll come out and play the way they did in the second half. They played hard and I’m proud of them for that.”

The Rams weathered the initial storm, coming back from a 7-2 deficit to tie the game, thanks to a baseline drive by Logan Laswell and a 3-pointer from the wing by Thomas Springer. But the Wildcats went on to build a 17-12 lead at the first break as big men Jake Hassler and Matt Dickerson each tossed in five points, while sophomore guard Hank LaRue tallied seven.

The game got out of hand early in the second quarter when the Wildcats hit seven of their first eight shots and outrebounded the Rams 13-3 to push the lead well into double digits. Mater Dei scored inside and out with Hassler scoring seven points in the period and Bryce Huff coming off the bench to add four, while Matt Coudret and Jerad Eickhoff each knocked down 3-pointers as the lead ballooned to 26 (38-12) before the Rams broke an 0-11 drought from the field with a 3-pointer by Laswell that helped Paoli pull back to within 22 at the half.

The Wildcats, who entered the contest shooting 46 percent from the field, shot a sizzling 60 percent in the first half and played some aggressive defense to boot.

“They played a little more aggressive defense than I saw the other night and they pushed us out on the floor,” Hinton said. “But we got impatient and that was part of the reason they got away from us the way they did.

“They say, you live by the three and you die by the three, but I’d like to see Donnie Kee and Logan Laswell get that many good looks again in another game. Normally you leave Donnie open and he’s going to hit 50 percent, but he didn’t have a very good night tonight, bless his heart.

“But I told them to think about the shots that didn’t go in tonight and think about the last-second shots we hit against Perry and against North Harrison. We won some ballgames by hitting those big 3-pointers, but you’re not going to hit them all the time. That’s just the way it goes sometimes.”

The Rams came out firing in the second half, with Laswell going the length of the floor for the first basket before Kee knocked down a 3-pointer and White hit three straight jumpers to cut the lead to 13 just 2:10 into the third quarter.

“I thought Drew was pretty impatient in the first half, but he did a much better job in the second half,” Hinton said. “I challenged him and Logan at halftime. They were something like 3 of 14 in the first half and our two best players can’t shoot that poorly if we want to beat anybody. They both took it as a challenge and they both played hard in the second half.”

The Rams’ run came as no surprise to first-year Mater Dei coach Kurt Wildeman.

“We knew they weren’t going to quit,” Wildeman said. “And I’m not sure we won the game as much as the time just ran out. I’m glad we only play a 16-minute half, because if there were a few more minutes, they would have been right there and that’s a credit to coach Hinton and his kids and how well they prepared. But we’re excited to keep playing.”

Dickerson ended the 11-2 run with a pair of free throws at the 5:30 mark and the Wildcats managed to keep the lead in double digits the remainder of the period, despite the fact that Springer hit two more 3-pointers and scored the final eight points of the quarter for the Rams, who trailed 50-35 heading into the final frame.

“Believe it or not, I almost started him tonight,” Hinton said of his sharp-shooting sophomore. “He shoots it like that in practice sometimes and he stepped up there and hit some big shots tonight. We kind of had them on the run there a little bit, but when you’ve got the horses they’ve got, it’s tough. What do you do when you’re trying to guard size like that? When you cheat that much on the big guys and they kick it out and they make those three’s, what can you do? We went through Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, all the way down to Plan G, I think and nothing worked too well. They’re an awfully good ball team and I wouldn’t be surprised to see them win a couple more games. You just don’t see too many 2A teams with that many horses.”

White buried a 3-pointer to open the fourth quarter and Springer added two more treys down the stretch, but the Rams could get no closer than 11 the rest of the way as the Wildcats hit 5 of 7 shots from the field in the final frame with LaRue going 3 for 3 and Hassler 2 for 2 to help seal the deal.

LaRue finished with 17 points and seven rebounds after scoring 18 in the Cats win over South Knox Saturday, earning him tournament MVP honors.

“Hank’s just a sophomore, but he plays a lot older than that,” Wildeman said. “Whenever the game’s in doubt, we want to get the ball in his hands and he’s been making good decisions for us. He’s played a great tournament so far.”

Springer, who finished with a game-high 20 points and seven rebounds, and White, who added 15 points and seven boards, each earned a spot on the All-Tourney team as did Hassler and Coudret for the Wildcats (15-9), who will play the winner of the Greenfield Central Regional which wraps up tonight with a match-up between Lawrenceburg (21-3) and Winchester (21-3).

***RAMS BEAT TR-WEST 78-72 TO ADVANCE TO CHAMPIONSHIP GAME VS. MATER dEI


HUNTINGBURG — The start of the Class 2A Southridge Regional was pushed back well into the afternoon Saturday thanks to the inclement weather that hit the area Friday night, but for the Paoli Rams it was well worth the wait.

The Rams battled back from a 10-point deficit in the first half to overtake the Tri-West Bruins and advance to Monday night’s regional final with a 78-72 victory at Memorial Gymnasium.

Trailing 39-33 at the half, the Rams used an 11-0 run at the outset of the third quarter to turn the tide before holding on for their 20th win of the season.

“In the films we watched, they didn’t look near that good,” Paoli coach Joe Hinton said. “I know sometimes films are misleading and I told my assistants maybe we ought to have more respect for them and they came out and took it to us. So we’re a little lucky, but we came out on top and that’s really all that matters.”

The Rams opened up a quick 9-6 lead as Drew White knocked down a pair of jumpers, Logan Laswell hit a 3-pointer from the corner and Mike Harkness scored on the fast break, but a 3-pointer by Tri-West sophomore Joe Pierle ignited a 13-1 run that gave the Bruins the edge for the remainder of the first half. Pierle went on to hit three treys in the period to help the Bruins build a nine-point lead before settling for a 23-17 edge at the first break.

“We tried to hurry them up a little bit, but they beat us down the floor and they got in behind us in the corner,” Hinton said. “Then we let them get it into the big kid (Sam Groth) and that hurt us. So we weren’t doing what we were supposed to do and when you don’t do those things, a well-coached team like that will hurt you.”

Tri-West leading scorer Randall Lowe, opened the second quarter with a jumper from the wing and the Bruins went on to hit their first four shots of the period to push the lead into double digits.

White, who wound up with a game-high 29 points, picked up his second and third fouls in a matter of moments and sat out the final 3:42 of the second quarter, but the Rams managed to cut into the lead nonetheless as Donnie Kee drove the lane for two and Joe Goodman tossed in a little jump hook that pulled Paoli back to within six at the half.

A more focused Ram club came out for the second half and helped force the Bruins into four quick turnovers that helped Paoli turn the tide. Kee buried a 3-pointer from the corner to start the run before he and Harkness each converted an old-fashioned three-point play that gave the Rams a 41-39 lead with 6:46 left in the third.

“We got four or five steals, denied the ball inside a little bit and got some momentum going,” Hinton said. “We got a few run-outs and everybody played a part in that, so that was good to see.”

Two more free throws by Harkness and a 3-pointer from White, pushed the lead to six with 3:56 to play, but Laswell picked up his fourth foul at the 2:11 mark and the Bruins closed out the quarter with an 8-2 run to pull even at 49 heading into the final frame.

It was a shootout from there, but as they did in the sectional final last week, the Rams wrapped it up at the free throw line. After hitting 5 of 8 shots from the field early in the period, Paoli made good on 19 of 22 free throws down the stretch to seal the win. On the rare occasion when they missed from the stripe, the Rams pulled down the rebound, getting two offensive boards apiece from Kee and Brandon Jones in the final minutes to help preserve the victory.

“Drew made some big shots in the second half for us and I thought Jones’ and Donnie Kee’s rebounds were key for us and they hit their free throws too,” Hinton said. “I thought they were so much more aggressive than we were on the boards, but when the game was on the line, we made some big boards. There were so many critical plays there it was unbelievable. But I thought our kids stepped up.”

White had six rebounds to go along with his 29 points, while Laswell added 23 points and seven boards and Kee finished with 14 points and six rebounds.

The Bruins were led by Groth’s 24 points and 11 rebounds, but after hitting 8 of 9 free throws in the first half, Tri-West made just 4 of 12 in the fourth quarter as the Rams pulled away for the victory.

“They’re really young and sometimes that makes a difference down the stretch like that,” Hinton said. “But we’ve got some young kids too and we made the plays down the stretch when we needed them.”

The Rams (20-4) will take on Evansville Mater Dei (14-9) in Monday’s championship game at 7:30 p.m. The Wildcats downed South Knox 61-51 in the second semifinal Saturday night.

***PAOLI RAMS WIN 2008 SECTIONAL 47 AT BROWNSTOWN***


BROWNSTOWN — The Paoli Rams ended six long years of frustration Saturday night by downing the Eastern Pekin Musketeers, 62-58, in the Class 2A, Sectional 47 finale at Brownstown Central High School.

The Rams hadn’t won a sectional title since 2002 and what made this one even more special was the fact that senior Donnie Kee calmly knocked down a pair of free throws with :05 on the clock to seal the win and send the Rams to the regional.

Kee, who lost his mother just over a week ago, has been stellar the past four games and he cherished the opportunity to have the ball in his hands at the end, even though he was just 2 for 4 from the stripe up to that point.

“I’d only hit one or two free throws earlier in the game, but there’s no better place to be than at the line, up two with two big free throws to win it,” Kee said. “I knew I was going to knock them down. Everybody had faith in me and I know Mom was up there watching me, so I didn’t even worry about it. I knew they were going in.”

Paoli Head coach Joe Hinton, who won 15 titles in his tenure at Floyd Central, felt it was right for Kee to be in that position with the game on the line.

“It was just fitting for him to be able to make those free throws,” Hinton said. “The good Lord was good to him and he’s come a long way in the last year and it was a good team effort tonight. We did some good things and we came out on top and that’s what matters most.

“I won my first sectional in 70-71. I cried that night and I cried tonight, so this is what it’s all about.”

The Rams came out firing, hitting 9 of 12 shots from the field in the first quarter to build a 20-14 lead at the first break.

Senior Drew White, who hit his first four shots and tallied nine first-quarter points, continued his hot shooting in the second period, knocking down three more jumpers and scoring seven points in the first 4:10 of the period to help the Rams open up a brief double-digit lead, 29-19, with 3:50 to play in the first half.

As they did in Friday night’s semifinal win over Clarksville, the Rams went cold late in the second quarter, scoring just two points the rest of the way as the Musketeers rallied to cut the lead to five, 31-26, at the half.

The Musketeers began to assert themselves on the boards late in the second quarter, pulling down four offensive rebounds to help cut into the lead.

“Their big people played so much better in this game than they did the first time we played them,” Hinton said. “Their bigs outplayed our bigs, but our bigs are 6-0 or 6-1 and you’ll have nights like that. But our big guys played well the other night and we wouldn’t have been here without them.

White and sophomore Logan Laswell, who was 4 for 5 from the field and 2 for 2 from the line, accounted for 26 of the Rams’ 31 first-half points, while Kee added a 3-pointer and Mike Harkness took a nice feed from Thomas Springer to score the remaining two points.

The Rams held Pekin leading scorer Clayton Starrett to a mere five points in the first half, but the Musketeers got points from seven different players to keep themselves in the game.

The Rams came out cold in the third quarter, hitting just three of their first 10 shots, but they refused to relinquish the lead until Pekin senior Steve Durham knocked down a 3-pointer from the top-of-the key with 1:38 left in the period to give the Musketeers their first advantage of the contest, 41-39.

White fed Springer for a layup that knotted the game at 43 heading into the final frame and the lead changed hands six times down the stretch before White hit 3 of 4 free throws and Kee made the final pair to seal the win.

The Musketeers, who finished their season with a 16-6 record, didn’t fare much better from the field in the third quarter, hitting just 6 of 21 shots, but they outrebounded the Rams 16-7 in the period to make a game of it.

Starrett finished with 13 points (eight below his average), while center Eric Powers added 10 points and 11 rebounds before fouling out with 1:38 left in the contest.

White finished with a game-high 24 points, while Laswell added 22 points and a team-high eight rebounds for the Rams, who shot just 33 percent from the field in the second half after hitting 13 of 20 (65 percent) over the first 16 minutes of play.

“Drew got a little tired in the second half,” Hinton admitted. “But they were knocking him around pretty good, so that’s understandable. The main thing is we came out on top. We don’t do a lot of things real well, that’s what some people say, but it’s all about putting the ball in the basket more than the other team and that’s what we did and now we’ve got a sectional championship.”

Kee finished with 11 points for the Rams, who improved to 19-4 and will take part in the Southridge Regional Saturday.
