 Hauk Sparks Junior Varsity to 33-28 Win Over Chargers

January 9, 2008 - Knightstown’s junior varsity boys basketball team desperately needed a shot in the arm Friday night against North Decatur. They got just that in the form of sophomore Jordan Hauk.

Hauk scored 10 of his game-high 14 points in the fourth quarter and overtime to lead the Panther JV to a 33-28 win over the Chargers. Hauk put the game into overtime with a basket and just nine seconds showing on the regulation clock.

He then scored six overtime points, putting up more markers than the entire Charger team, to help secure the victory.

The Panthers trailed by four points with just 2:30 showing on the clock when Hauk drove inside and nailed a short jumper. Following a North Decatur bucket that made the score 23-19, Drew Martin hit inside off a great feed from Lane Fields.

After the Panthers missed the front of a one-and-one, they followed that up with a turnover. But North Decatur couldn’t close the door and missed a pair of free throws. That’s when Hauk took the ball inside and tied the contest with nine ticks left in regulation.

In the overtime, Martin stole the ball and fed Colby Lane, who followed with a 17-foot jumper that put Knightstown ahead 25-23. After a Charger bucket tied it back up, Anthony Forshey hit inside to make it 27-25 with 1:50 to play.

The Panthers missed another front end of a one-and-one situation, but that would be the last time. Hauk went to the charity stripe three times in the last 45 seconds, nailing all six attempts to put the game out of reach. A key steal by Anthony Forshey ended the threat and Hauk’s last two freebies upped the lead to 33-25 with 16 seconds to play.

North Decatur hit a three-pointer in the final seconds to close the scoring.

Hauk led the Panthers with 14 points, getting just two of those in the first half when the Panthers trailed 12-11. Lane finished with five points, while Travis Titus and Chris Mefford scored four apiece. Fields, Anthony Forshey and Martin scored two apiece.
