With the Carmel Greyhounds reeling late on Friday night after leading the Class 4A Noblesville Millers by as many as 15 points, the least likely of heroes emerged.

Scoring 10 of his team-high 20 points in the fourth quarter, 4A Carmel sophomore guard Ethan Merriweather buried 8 of 10 free throws in the final eight minutes to fend off the resilient Millers 55-45 in front of a frenzied crowd at The Mill.

Merriweather was 6 of 8 from the field and 8 of 12 from 15-feet out, helping the fourth-ranked Greyhounds (13-1) extend their latest winning streak to 10 consecutive games.

Huskies fall to Eastern for first time in two decades
ARCADIA - Hamilton Heights has been playing without its second-leading scorer, while dealing with sickness throughout the team.

The Huskies had dropped two of their previous three games, and nothing that happened on Friday is going to make them feel any better.

Mid-Indiana Conference rival Eastern made a dozen free throws in the fourth quarter and pulled out a 53-52 win, their first victory at Hamilton Heights in more than 20 years.

Golden Eagles clobber rival Braves
INDIANAPOLIS - The Class 3A No. 6 Guerin Catholic Golden Eagles dropped the hammer against rival Brebeuf Jesuit, 65-48, on Friday night.

The win over the 3A Braves (7-8) snaps a two-game losing skid for the Golden Eagles (11-6), who have played against some very tough opponents these past few weeks.

The game was close after just one quarter of play but that wouldn't last very long. The Golden Eagles offense got it going in the second and increased their existing three-point lead to 10 at halftime.

INDIANAPOLIS - Make it two in row for the Guerin Catholic Golden Eagles girls' basketball team as they defeated rival Brebeuf Jesuit 38-28 in front of a packed house on Friday night.

The Golden Eagles (7-14) were in command for the entire game but sealed the deal in the fourth quarter with a strong 12-point effort to get past the Braves (2-15).

Junior Abigail Wampler and the Golden Eagles came out firing in the first quarter scoring 12 points in the period to take an early 12-10 lead. They further extended their lead to five points behind a Kristy Theim buzzer-beating 3-pointer in the second period, but the lead wasn't big enough to get comfortable just yet.

Bulldogs subdue Shamrocks
BROWNSBURG - Starting and finishing games haven't been an issue for the Westfield Shamrocks boys' basketball team this season. For the most part it's been the in between quarters that have been an issue.

That problem continued on Friday night as Westfield fell to Hoosier Crossroads Conference rival the Brownsburg Bulldogs 58-43.

The Shamrocks (2-12, 0-4) had the lead over the Bulldogs (12-4, 2-1) after the first quarter but struggled in the second and third periods.

Mark Morrow: Lend me your ears, and your hoops opinion
In some circles, Class Basketball remains a hot topic among many of the Hoosier basketball faithful.

Oh, it might not surface in a heated manner all that often, but I still believe that there are many folks with an opinion about the way it was and the way it is, and maybe the way it could be better.

Touch on the subject with the Old Guard and see the response you get. They will never come around and be content with the four-class format that has been in place since the 1997-98 season.

Both teams ended a hard-fought first half with the score knotted up at 19 apiece. However, the halftime break was just what the Shamrocks needed as they came out on fire in the third quarter.

Notebook: Royals finish season on high note
CARMEL - The tenth-ranked Hamilton Southeastern wrestling team knew it had something to prove on Wednesday night before closing the book on the 2014-15 regular season.

Not necessarily to their opponents, the defending sectional champion Carmel Greyhounds, but more for themselves.

As a team, they delivered that message - internally.

Carmel crushes MIC rival Pike
INDIANAPOLIS - Carmel didn't reinvent itself for a mid-week top-5 matchup. The Greyhounds simply played to their strengths.

It all adds up to a statement win: No. 4 Carmel 66, No. 5 Pike 49. Cline had 25 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds. Culp added 21 points and made five 3-pointers.
