FORTVILLE — Mt. Vernon’s first season as a 4A boys basketball team has been filled with new experiences. Saturday night’s lesson was painful, but Marauders coach Travis Daugherty hopes it will result in value later.

“Tonight was a good night to learn what playing 4A basketball at a high level is all about,” Daugherty said after the 71-51 loss to Noblesville.

It will also serve as a lesson next year that there is life after senior CJ Coleman graduates.

Coleman scored 19 straight points for the Marauders to close within four with 6:48 remaining in the third quarter. But Coleman was fouled during a drive to the basket and injured his ankle. After hitting the two free throws, he left the court with the trainer.

Coleman revealed Monday that his season — and high school career — is over.

“Hurt my ankle Saturday and went to the doc today and it’s broken,” he posted to Twitter. “I have surgery Friday.”
