Chargers rise to 3-1 in conference

Greensburg — The North Decatur boys basketball team posted a quality win against a conference opponent, beating Morristown 54-48 at home.

The Chargers led 14-9 after the first quarter and 29-20 at the half. Head coach Kyle Nobbe’s Chargers built on a 10-9 advantage late in the first quarter, finishing on a 4-0 run. Sophomore Evan Wallpe scored, and North attacked on defense. Sophomore Arek Holloway grabbed a steal and assisted sophomore Andrew Hocker on a basket to make it 14-9.

The only two juniors on North’s varsity roster jump-started a 6-0 North run early in the second quarter.

Eric Moorman scored on a rebound basket, and Austin Brown dished to Wallpe to make it 18-11.

Following a Morristown offensive foul, North’s lead grew to nine until the Yellow Jackets ran off five straight. Sophomore Dayne Lecher answered with a floater and a driving basket to make it an eight-point game at 24-16.

Holloway later broke it open with a 3-pointer, lifting North 27-18 with 1:30 left in the first half.

The pace slowed down as North edged Morristown 9-8 in the third quarter. Morristown outscored North 20-17 in the final period, but it was not enough.
