  • Cold Shooting Hurts Triton In Season-Opening Loss
    Triton did most everything right in its boys basketball season opener Wednesday against sectional rival Oregon-Davis. But the Trojans’ frigid shooting enabled the Bobcats to leave town with a 42-31 victory.

    The Trojans, with just three seniors on their roster, missed all 10 of their shots from the floor in the opening quarter, and were down 9-0 before sophomore Quentin Thornburg sunk a three-pointer with 6:20 to go in the first half. Midway through the second period Triton trailed 15-4.

    Warsaw transfer Ross Johnson scored the last eight points of the half and got the first bucket of the third quarter to cap a 10-0 run that pulled Triton to within one, but the cold shooting returned and the Bobcats methodically pulled away

    Admission to watch the games is $7 per day, and all proceeds will go to Kosciusko County Cancer Care Fund (KCCCF). The tournament is sponsored by Wyndham Garden of Warsaw and the Warsaw Morning Optimist Club. All cancer survivors are welcome to attend the tournament free of charge.

"We chose to channel our money to KCCCF rather than the Jimmy V Foundation like most other schools do because all of the money stays local to benefit the area. It's been a neat thing for us to be involved with as a team."
