Covington Catholic 65, Pleasure Ridge Park 54

The final game of the evening saw the No. 7 Covington Catholic (18-4) defeat No.8 Pleasure Ridge Park (13-5). The defending state champion Colonels marched past the Panthers to claim their seventh straight victory in the events marquee top 10 match up.

A crazy opening quarter of play saw the top 10 opponents battle to six lead changes and five ties. A pair of Greg Davidson free throws put PRP ahead at the end of the first quarter. Davidson opened the second quarter with a three-pointer to push the Panthers lead to five points, the largest lead of the half. The two teams battled to five more lead changes in the second quarter. Covington Catholic's Cole VonHandorf scored the final seven points of the half for the Colonels to push them ahead 31-27 at the half.

The opening three minutes of the second half was all-Covington Catholic as the Colonels hit three straight three-point field goals to build a 12-point lead. The Panthers caught fire going on a 12-3 run and forcing three Colonels turnovers to pull within 45-40 at the end of the third quarter of play. Drew Glass' free throw in the opening minute of the fourth quarter pulled PRP within four points, but the Panthers couldn't get any closer. A steal and basket by VonHandorf mid-way through the final quarter pushed Covington Catholic's lead back to 10 points. Covington Catholic hit 5-of-6 free throws and a layup in the final 1:30 of play to extend the final margin to 65-54.

Pleasure Ridge Park was led by Richard Gaines with 15 points. Greg Davidson added 11 points and Drew Glass recorded a double-double with 10 points and 13 rebounds. Covington Catholic Sophomore Cole VonHandorf led all scorers with 29 points. Andy Flood added 14 points for the Colonels.
