Eagles fall to Wildcats

RIPLEY – The Sherman Wildcats held the Ripley Eagles without an offensive rebound and forced 32 turnovers in a 61-24 victory in CCAA Division 4 boys basketball Thursday night.

Despite 20 first-half turnovers, the Eagles were just down 26-15 at halftime. Ripley coach Adam Chambers noted the second half – a 35-9 Sherman rout – was a story of long-range shots by Sherman.

Eric Horstman led the Eagles with seven points in defeat. Eric Szymanowski added two points and five rebounds.
