CHS Boys blow out Hobart 78-37

Back To Front Page



The Chesterton boys basketball team improved to 12-1 on the season with a 78-37 non-conference victory over Hobart.

“It was nice to finally play at home. It’s been a while,” Chesterton coach Marc Urban said. “As we continue to grow, we are starting to understand our offense and how to create quality shots. We’re good when we do it together.”

The Trojans used a 12-0 run in the first quarter, thanks in part to five points from Luke Lombardini, to build a 20-8 lead. Lombardini finished with eight points, including two 3-pointers.

“I think the game is starting to slow down for Luke,” Urban said. “He’s more comfortable and he’s shooting the ball well.”

The lead grew to 37-15 at halftime with another 15-2 run.

“We moved the basketball really well and got some clean looks,” Urban said. “Our guys are so unselfish. We made the right plays and the right decisions tonight.”

Any thoughts of a Brickie comeback were squashed early in the third quarter as Jake Warren scored four quick points. Warren finished with 12 points on the night.

“I was really happy with the way we came out after halftime. We’ve struggled early in the third quarter sometimes this season,” Urban said. “Jake Warren is tough to guard when you have to worry about Jake Wadding too. Jake (Warren) is a really good basketball player and became a real force inside for us.”

The Trojans were not only red-hot offensively with 33-of-54 (.611) shooting from the field, but held Hobart to just 17-of-44 (.386) shooting.

“I thought the guys were really locked in on the defensive end and were able to dictate to them the shots they were going to get,” Urban said. “We still have to continue to grow as a basketball team and keep getting better.”

Travis Grayson led the Trojans with a team-high 14 points, while Wadding (11 points), Alex Schmidt (9 points), Tyler Vanderwoude (7 points), Chris Mullen (5 points), Carson Parrish (4 points), Sean Elliott (3 points), Malcom Harper (3 points) and Landen Johnston (2 points) rounded out the scoring.

Chesterton returns to the court on Friday night in a girls-boys doubleheader at home against LaPorte. The boys varsity game is scheduled for a 7 p.m. tipoff.

“LaPorte is a good basketball team,” Urban said. “They’ve got two really good scorers and a quality point guard. It’ll be a great game and hopefully the town of Chesterton will come out and give us that extra lift we’ll need on Friday night.”
