Boys Basketball: Mitchell shoots past Salem,

SALEM — The Mitchell boys basketball team was on fire on Tuesday night and it had no trouble earning a big victory in the process.

The Bluejackets traveled to Salem and used a flurry of outside shots to run a way with a dominant victory.

Mitchell took control immediately by jumping out to a lead after the first quarter.

In the second, the Bluejackets didn't really cool off at all, extending that advantage to and taking complete control into halftime.

Even the midway break couldn't slow them down as Mitchell continued to score at a blinding pace in the third, upping the deficit to

The Lions managed to finally get going and score 26 points in the fourth but it was far too little, too late to cut into the Bluejackets's massive lead.

It was certainly a night to remember for the entire Mitchell squad, which shot 64 percent from the field, a lights-out 66 percent from 3-point range and scored 24 total bench points to run away with the victory.

After the Bluejackets dropped their previous two games in blowout losses to Tell City and Whiteland last weekend, head coach Jackson Ryan literally couldn't have asked for a better bounce-back performance from his team.

"I'm so proud of how we responded tonight," Ryan said. "We had a tough weekend but we learned from it. We played tough, physical Mitchell basketball. It always helps when shots are falling but we took a huge step forward on the offensive end. Cutting, spacing, poise, making the extra pass, finding the hot hand, the list goes on.

"Kade Wigley will get a lot of credit and rightfully so, but this was a total team effort. Nate Reynolds showed he was the best athlete on the floor. Alec Barlow ran the show. Nick Mundy and Connor Fields were outsized but owned the paint. Andrew Shepherd gave us a huge spark. It was a great team win and we'll see if we can carry it over to Friday."

Wigley, a sophomore, was unconscious from the outside all night. He led Mitchell with 24 points on shooting and shooting from three.

Reynolds was next with 12 points and five assists, followed by Shepherd with nine points, Mundy with six points and five rebounds, Brendan Tolliver with six points, Fields with five points and five rebounds, Barlow with five points, Trevin Lee with four points, Rayce England with three points and Ben Seitzinger with two points.

The victory improves the Bluejackets to on the season as they get ready for their next game — a PLAC showdown at West Washington on Friday.

Salem is playing for Joe, for Leah, and for a community that will 'blow the roof off'

This story is about more than basketball, but then again, is anything more than basketball in Salem right now? This community of 6, has surrounded the Lions girls team like nothing you’ve seen before.

The stands at Jeffersonville were filled with fans donning black and gold Saturday, those who made the mile trip south to see Salem play in the regional final. And if you don’t think they played a role in Salem’s win, well, there’s this:

At one point, the Brownstown Central players couldn’t even hear themselves think. Couldn’t hear the plays being called. The Salem fans noticed. They just got louder.

And there’s this: Tickets went on sale for the state finals on Wednesday morning. The Lions left the high school at 11 a.m. to practice at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. By then, 1, tickets had already been sold.

Make no mistake, Salem fans will be out in force Saturday night when the Lions play NorthWood for a 3A state title. They’ve been waiting for this moment for decades. The last Salem team to make the state finals was the boys basketball team. That was in the midst of the Great Depression 90 years ago. No Lions team has ever won a state title.

If that changes Saturday, the noise might travel miles down I all the way back to Salem. And even if it doesn’t change, that noise might still carry.

“They’ll blow the roof off this place if we’re able to hold on Saturday,” Lions coach Jerry Hickey said. “Our community loves this group so much that they may even get it if we’re not able to get a victory. The pride they have for these girls is unbelievable.”

* * *

This is about more than the present. This is about the past, too. This is for Joe.

Joe Jackson is a Salem lifer. He was born in Salem in Went to Salem High School, played on the basketball team that won a sectional title. He won two sectionals with the boys basketball program as an assistant coach and won one with the girls.

“I always said he could clap longer and louder than anybody I’d ever met,” Hickey said. “He was such a positive force for the girls and fatherly figure. One of the greatest men and greatest people you could ever meet.”

Jackson died from cancer in May. How much was Jackson a part of Salem basketball?

Read his obituary: “The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to:  Salem Basketball…”

“There’s not a lot of Salem basketball over the last 25 or 30 years that didn’t involve him,” Hickey said. “He was a man everybody in our community knew. He was an upstanding man and loved by our entire community.”

Lori, Jackson’s widow, has attended all of Salem’s games this season. She has cut a piece of the net during the team’s tournament run in his honor. A chair on the bench at Bankers Life on Saturday will be empty, but Jackson’s team shirt will be there. 

“He always brought a positive attitude and motivated us and wanted us to get better,” Salem senior Leah Miller said. “He loved the game of basketball. We miss him so much. Every game we play, we think about him and pray for him. We know he’s here watching over us.”

* * *

Coming into the season, Leah Miller was supposed to be the team’s go-to player for a program coming off its first regional title. The two-time All-State honorable mention honoree averaged points per game last season. Two weeks before her senior campaign was set to begin, she tore her ACL and cracked her femur playing soccer. Her season was done before it began. 

That was on a Tuesday. On Thursday morning at a a.m. workout, Hickey delivered the news to his players.

“We had some tears,” he said. “We talked about how we still have our goals. Our goals are to play at Bankers Life. We said, ‘If anybody doesn’t believe that can happen, you need to turn and walk out of this gym right now.’ That was our rallying point. We said, ‘We may look a little different this year, but we think we have a chance to still accomplish those goals.’”

The Lions won their first seven games and 10 of their first They were ranked No. 3 in the first 3A poll of the season and No. 1 before the tournament began. This isn’t a team that looks like it’s missing its best player.

Karly Sweeney is averaging 12 points per game. Natalie Noel is averaging Abigail Ratts and Hope Tomlinson are averaging each. 

“We knew we were losing one of our best players and that it’d be hard to replace her, but we knew we could do it because we have a lot of talented players,” Sweeney said.

As for Miller, she’s learned a thing or two sitting on the bench.

“I have to be motivational. I try to help them as much as I can,” she said. “I’m almost like another coach. At first it was really hard. I wasn’t used to being on the bench so much. They’ve done everything they needed to do. The girls have stepped up and filled my role.”

* * *

They’ve been building for this.

When Hickey took the Salem job seven years ago, this year’s seniors were in fifth grade. He saw the talent then. When this year’s senior class were freshmen, Hickey took the team to watch Eastern (Pekin) in the state finals.

“I pulled our girls together during that game and said, ‘This can be us someday, and it isn’t a long shot,’” he said. “To see it come to fruition is pretty amazing.”

That year, the team had won 14 games. The next year, they won their first sectional title since Last season, they won their first regional. This year, their first semistate.

This is a group that’s been through plenty. And it’s paying off.

“There are nights when we’ve got all these play calls on the board,” Hickey said. “We’re drawing it up and ready to go, and before we run out, I say, ‘Just go play. You know what you’re doing.’ Sometimes it’s better for us to step back and let them do their thing.”

One more win, and the storybook is complete.

“We’re making history,” Miller said. “To see everyone come together from all around our county has been great.

“To win Saturday would be a dream come true.”

I felt my cheeks burning and my heart beating, and that I couldn't help but watch the public blowjob scene. Slightly moving my legs, I felt that I began to get wet and, no longer resisting my desires, dropped one handle into my panties. A pleasant. Tremor ran over me from the thought that I was not cheating on my husband, I was present at such a party and having relaxed a little, I began to fondle my little sensitive tubercle with habitual movements.

Together, how my girl Nastenka was struggling in orgasm, not so long ago. Now she is doing well with physics, but I only envy. Hoping for help, Vasilisa called the last person on the contact list. Hi Kostya. Its me.
