Valparaiso (17-8) won the 4A Sectional 2 championship with an upset 53-52 win
over Chesterton on March 7. It was the 53rd sectional boys basketball
championship in Valpo school history.
Trailing all the way in the sectional semifinal game, Crown Point shot 43.5% (20 of 46) from the field, a percentage that mirrored their 24-game season percentage of 42.5%.
CP’s struggles from the foul line (8 of 16, 50%) reflected their season-long free shot woes. In 24 games, CP was 243 of 392 on free throws for 62% and even that percentage was misleading. Sophomore Drew Adzia was 45 of 49 (91.8%) so the rest of the team was 198 of 343 (57.7%).
Ty Smith, Drew Adzia and David Brown started all 24 games for CP (12-12) and all three are scheduled to return next season.
