MICHIGAN CITY (01-23-2018) It appeared as if the Crown Point Bulldogs were headed for their first Duneland Athletic Conference victory. On the road against the Michigan City Wolves on January 23, the Bulldogs held a third quarter lead of 30-21.

However, the Wolves gained momentum and outscored the Bulldogs 14-8 in the fourth quarter as Michigan City picked-up a 46-44 win.

With the win, Michigan City improves to 6-10 overall, 2-0 in the DAC. Crown Point slips to 5-9, 0-3 in the DAC.

In a game that featured eight lead changes, seven alone in the first half the Wolves got production from junior guard Jaivion Reid, who had 13 points; while junior guard Daejon Reddix had 12, including two of six from three-point range.

Matching Reid’s total for the Bulldogs, junior guard/forward Elias Gerodemos chipped-in 13 points, while junior forward Sam Decker had 10.

Yet the Bulldogs struggled in connecting from beyond the arc, they hit 20 percent on 2 of 10 three-point shooting while also turning the ball over 20 times.

Despite the loss, the Bulldogs connected for almost 91 percent of their free throws, hitting 10 of 11 from the line.

Dog Notes: This game marked the Bulldogs first trip to Michigan City since they lost in the sectional title game to Merrillville last season. On March 4, 2017, Crown Point’s season ended with a 71-60 loss.

The Bulldogs have now lost five-straight against the Wolves at Michigan City, including the sectional tournament. The last win for Crown Point at Michigan City came on January 21, 2011, a 49-37 victory.
