HEBRON — With the sectional around the corner and stronger competition in its path to post-season success, South Central had a troubling trend continue in Saturday’s resounding 54-32 thud of a loss to Morgan Township in the Porter County Conference tournament championship.
“This has been us in every big game this year,” Satellites coach Wes Bucher said. “(Morgan) came out like they were hungry. We came out nervous. We came out a little too soft. To have an opportunity in a championship game, you can’t come out like that. Every time we play a team that starts to match our physicality in big moments, we don’t finish around the rim. We need somebody ready to compete in big games. That’s where we stand as a program right now. We’ve got to get to the nitty-gritty and it’s not quite there yet.”
