WESTFIELD - Westfield senior Ian Kristensen scored a game-high 23 points on 10-of-15 shooting, not missing a basket inside the three-point range Friday at home against Hoosier Crossroads Conference foe Brownsburg.

The only problem was the Bulldogs had two players combine for 14-for-17 shooting and 40 points, as Brownsburg picked up a 60-46 victory over the host Shamrocks.

Brownsburg sophomore Cameron Alford scored a team-high 21 points, on 6-for-9 shooting from the field and 9-for-10 from the line, and Bulldog senior Landon Hall added 19 points, on 8-for-8 shooting.

The theme for the night was the taller Bulldogs being able to get inside and hit easy buckets. For the game, Brownsburg hit 23-for-29 shots, for a blistering 79 percent. All but one of the shots came within the three-point line, as Brownsburg hit 22 two-point field goals, and missing just four.

"The game really came down to them hitting about 79 percent from the field," Westfield coach Shane Sumpter said. "And, they were all easy shots, inside the lane. It came down to us not being able to get any stops all night long."

Westfield's bright spots came from Kristensen and fellow senior Jonah Welch. Kristensen hit eight shots from eight to 12-feet, as he was able to get open on drives, hitting several with a Brownsburg defender's hand in his face. Welch added 14 points on 5-for-9 shooting and four three throws.

"(Kristensen) had a nice game out there for us," Sumpter said. "He was able to drive to the basket and get some good looks."

Westfield was only able to enjoy the leads very early in the game. Kristensen opened the scoring with a rebound bucket, and a couple minutes later, sophomore Caleb Welch hit a three-pointer to give Westfield a 5-2 lead with 4:38 to play in the opening quarter. But Brownsburg ended the quarter on a 15-4 run for a 17-9 lead after one quarter.

Turnovers kept Westfield from being able to make any kind of rally in the second quarter. The Bulldogs forced turnovers on three consecutive Westfield possessions midway through the quarter, and a 17-11 Brownsburg advantage swelled to 27-13 at the half.

"We had some turnovers in the first half that kept us from getting anything going," Sumpter said.

A bright spot for Westfield came on a 7-0 run in the third quarter, as the Shamrocks closed to within 11 points. Brownsburg led 37-26. However, the Bulldogs closed the quarter on an 8-4 run to lead 45-30 after three.

"We were able to make a nice little run there," Sumpter said. "But the story of the game is we just couldn't get any stops at all."
