SHELBYVILLE — In the past 10 days, Eastern Hancock has thrice proven that its rejuvenated program is one to be reckoned with.

The Royals toppled previously unbeaten Class 2A No. 10 Lapel on Dec. 11. Three days later, EH ended a seven-year winless drought against rival Knightstown.

Friday night, the Royals picked up their third signature win in four games — and their fifth straight victory — by beating Class A No. 8 Southwestern 65-59.

Coach Jeremy Powers’ squad improved to 2-2 in Mid-Hoosier Conference play with its first-ever MHC road victory, and handed the Spartans their first conference loss of the year.

“We’ve talked about getting a moxie, a swag on the road,” explained the second-year coach, who added that EH was previously winless at Southwestern. “I said you can get that now if you get a conference win on the road.”
