Back To Front Page



The Chesterton boys basketball team scored the game’s first 13 points Tuesday night and never looked back.

The Trojans’ only went to single digits once as they cruised to a 69-58 victory over Class 3A No. 8 Bishop Noll heading into Christmas Break.

“It’s a good win and a good way to head into the Christmas break,” Chesterton coach Tom Peller said.

Chesterton hit three 3’s in the first quarter, including two from senior Jack Mullen to build a 13-2 lead after one period. Noll would score five straight early in the second quarter to make it 15-7, but never got closer.

Mullen hit two more triples in a 16-2 run that pushed the lead to 31-9 with 2:35 to go in the half.

“We really controlled things early on,” Peller said. “We got good shots and our defense was solid. We played that sagging man-to-man and it really seemed to bother them.”

Rhyss Lewis led the Trojans with 18 points, while Mullen added 14 points. Austin Peterson tallied 12 points and grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds.

“We wanted to get better with our balance in scoring and we did that,” Peller said. “I thought Austin Peterson really gave us some great play inside. He scored and rebounded the ball. That was big for us.”

Bishop Noll’s Roman Penn scored a game-high 22 points, but 11 came in the fourth quarter after the game was over.

“I thought Niles (Dilosa) did a great job on (Roman) Penn,” Peller said. “He’s their main guy and we knew we had to slow him down. It was Niles’ job and he did it with his athleticism.”

The Trojans held Noll to just 19-of-52 shooting (36 percent) from the floor and were just 3-of-19 from 3-point range.

“When they made a run, we got a basket or made a stop on defense when we had to,” Peller said.

The Trojans return to the court next Tuesday when they play Columbus East in the Noblesville Holiday Tournament.

“We’re 5-2 heading to Noblesville next week,” Peller said. “I’m really happy with the way we’ve been able to make adjustments after each game. We learn and that’s only going to help us grow as a team.”
