MARSHALL, Ill. — Leyton Ivers' late 3-point attempt for Lawrenceville was off the mark, and Marshall survived the Indians' threat with a 47-44 Little Illini Conference boys basketball win Saturday.

Ethan Kelly scored 14 points to lead the Indians (0-4, 0-1 LIC), and Bryant Jenkins and Brenyn Winningham each scored eight.

Lawrenceville never led after falling behind 10-0. It was 17-7 after one and 27-18 in favor of Marshall (4-1, 3-0) at halftime, and Ivers and Kelly each had 3s in getting the Indians within 38-34 after three.

The Lions' biggest lead in the fourth with six, and they missed the front end of two one-and-bonuses in the final 35 seconds, giving the Indians an opportunity down three with 14 seconds left. Ivers' shot came with about four seconds left, and Marshall cleared the rebound before Lawrenceville could foul.

Daniel Tingley led the Lions with 17 points.

“All you can ask for is an opportunity at the end, especially against a team like (Marshall) on the road,” Lawrenceville coach Ian Laughlin said. “In the end, they made a few more plays than we did. But the thing I'm happiest with is that we've gotten incrementally better in each game. We just went toe-to-toe with a team that's going to be at the top of our league. We put a full game together, and we put a half together (Friday). If we continue to build like this, we have something going here.”

On Friday the Indians kept pace with Mount Carmel for a little over a half before the Golden Aces took off for a 66-45 victory.

Hunter Scott scored 14 for Lawrenceville, Damon Zollars 10, and Brayden Sherman nine, on three 3-pointers.

The score was 17-13 after one and 32-24 at halftime, and Sherman opened the third quarter with a 3-pointer to get the Indians within five. Mount Carmel's Kaleb Applebey scored 11 of his game-high 23 points in the stanza to push his team's lead to 54-33 after three.

Beau Stipp chipped in 19 points for the Golden Aces, and he and Applebey each had 12 in the first half.

Lawrenceville's junior varsity eked out a 45-44 win over the Golden Aces. Jenkins paced the JV Indians (2-2) with 20 points. Marshall's JV topped the Indians, 50-20.

Lawrenceville hosts Newton at 6:15 p.m. CST Tuesday.

Busy Salukis claim basketball split

Red Hill's boys basketball team split a pair of road games in less than 18 hours, winning at Martinsville on Saturday morning, 56-44, after losing a Little Illini Conference game at Newton on Friday night, 68-58.

The Salukis (2-2) rode the trio of Camren Ray (18 points), Drake Allen (16) and Anthony Jerrell (14) in their victory over Martinsville. They led at all the quarter stops, 16-13, 29-23 and 38-28. Ray's seven-point fourth quarter allowed Red Hill to hang on to its double-figure lead.

Despite Jerrell's five 3-pointers and career-high 27 points, Newton (3-3, 2-0 LIC) erased an early deficit to take the LIC tilt. The Salukis (0-2 LIC) led 19-15 after one quarter, but the Eagles claimed a 33-30 halftime lead and expanded it to 47-42 after three quarters. Ray had 11 points, and Allen and Andrew Maxfield added 10, as only four players scored.

Red Hill's junior varsity only played against Newton, losing 48-28, with Hayden Arbuckle scoring 13.

The Salukis are at Paris at 6:15 p.m. CST Tuesday.
