Royals can clinch share of conference title Monday




MORRISTOWN — Eastern Hancock wasn’t as flashy or spectacular from the outside Friday night as it was the previous two games.

But the Royals played well enough to win, and moved a huge step closer to a Mid-Hoosier Conference title.

It was defense that won EH a 51-42 battle over Morristown at the Bee Hive, as the Royals withstood a flat evening shooting the basketball and knocked the Yellow Jackets out of the conference race.

The 13-4 Royals, winners of three straight, moved to 6-2 in the MHC and will clinch at least a share of the title by beating Indian Creek Monday.

EH coach Aaron Spaulding liked how his team played, despite shooting 32 percent from the field, 7-of-27 on 3-pointers and missing 11-of-21 free throw tries.
