Guerin Catholic won their fourteenth boys basketball game of the season Tuesday night as they defeated Anderson 63-56 at the Eagles Nest. Anderson held the lead three times in the first half, highlighted by a 9-2 run in the middle of the second quarter that include three consecutive slam dunks. A baseline jumper though by Will Morris put Guerin Catholic ahead for good 28-25 late in the stanza. The Golden Eagles overcame ten first half turnovers to lead 30-28 at halftime. Both teams had trouble hitting shots in the third quarter, but GC did built its’ largest lead of the contest, 41-32. A buzzer beater 3-pt. field goal by the Indians cut their deficit to six points heading into the fourth quarter. In the fourth quarter both teams’ offenses got hot. Jack Hansen, who came off the bench as Coach Pete Smith started his five healthy seniors, had 15 points in the final period as the athletic Anderson team tried valiantly but could not cut the margin under three points at any time. Matthew Godfrey knocked down four consecutive free throws in the final minute to ice the victory.
