It was too little, too late Tuesday night for the White Pigeon boys basketball team in a 55-45 boys basketball setback at the hands of host Marcellus.
The Chiefs dug themselves into a deep hole during the first two quarters of the contest and trailed, 34-13 by halftime.
Stone Kemp scored 15 of his 16 points following the intermission, and teammate Carter Grant knocked down three 3-point shots during the second half, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the first-half deficit.
Austin Yoder scored a team-high 17 points for White Pigeon, while Grant finished with nine points. Kamren Garten was the lone other Chief to score, netting three points.
Marcellus got a team-high 14 points from Gavin Etter, while Kaler Stafne and Eli Robinson scored 11 and 10 points, respectively.
Also breaking into the scoring column for Marcellus were Jack Summers (7 points), Trevor Henry (6 points), Zachary Shelton (3 points), Derek Flory (2 points) and Carson Summers (2 points).
