BOURBON - Triton boys basketball coach Jason Groves didn't know what to do against Rochester Tuesday night.

The Trojans tried a zone defense, and that didn't work. They tried a man-to-man defense, and that didn't work. Out of answers, he asked his players what they wanted to do. They went back to a zone.

Zebras seek to extend John Glenn skid
Sports Editor, The Sentinel

Boys basketball

Rochester (3-12) at John Glenn (6-12), 6 p.m./7:30 p.m. (JV/Varsity): A decade ago, Travis Hannah was the head coach and Rex Reinholt an assistant coach on the Oregon-Davis boys team that won the Class 1A title. And while that championship might forever link them, Reinholt and the Zebras will try to beat Hannah and the Falcons in Walkerton tonight.

"It's just his headiness of the game," Reinholt said of John Glenn star Matt Strong. "He just seems to have a knack for when to go and when to knock down shots. His older brother was a good offensive player for coach Hannah. It's just kind of passed down. Sometimes that basketball savvy you can't always teach. And he's got a good understanding of when to go and where the ball needs to go for coach Hannah."

Super comeback: Down 28-3, Pats rally to win Super Bowl in OT
HOUSTON (AP) - They looked old and outmanned. Their star quarterback was frazzled, their stingy defense was a sieve.

So what? Tom Brady and the New England Patriots shrugged and did what they always seem to do: Win the Super Bowl.

Brady led one of the greatest comebacks in sports history highlighted by a Julian Edelman catch that was almost beyond belief. The Patriots pulled themselves out of a 25-point hole against the Atlanta Falcons to a 34-28 win for New England's fifth NFL championship. It was the first Super Bowl decided in overtime.

Valley wins third straight
LIGONIER - "You are like a hurricane," Neil Young once sang. "There's calm in your eyes."

He might have been describing the Tippecanoe Valley girls basketball team.

Any obstacle one throws at them, any banked-in 3-pointer, any player you might get into foul trouble, any turnover you might force, and the Lady Vikings are only going to come up with something bigger and better.

What happened in the Class 3A, Sectional 21 final against Fairfield at West Noble High School Saturday was just a continuation of a three-year run of dominance that ended with Valley winning their eighth sectional title in school history and their third straight.

Hoover makes Valley history
Do you think high school students just ignore those school announcements that come over the intercom system?

BOYS SWIMMING

The Rochester boys swimming team's competition wasn't just Plymouth Tuesday. It was also competing against itself.

In the 200 freestyle relay, RHS coach Stephanie Brown intentionally put junior Jeff Ruppert at the anchor leg of the "A" relay and freshman Mason Beall at the anchor leg of the "B" relay to see if Ruppert, a sprinter, could overtake Beall, more known for his distance work.
