Indians remain unbeaten

Looking to continue their recent run of success, Coach Josh Arey and his Peebles Indians varsity basketball squad have started the 2015-16 season in perfect fashion with four wins in four tries, including a sweep last weekend with wins over Fayetteville and Western Latham on the Peebles home court.

On Friday, Dec. 11, the Indians hosted Fayetteville in Southern Hills Athletic Conference action and got off to a slow start, leading the Rockets just 11-10 after the first quarter. That changed quickly in the second quarter when the Peebles offense caught fire and racked up 19 points, spread among the scoring of six different players. The 19-point outburst gave the Indians a 30-21 halftime advantage.

“After the first quarter, we started to play more team oriented, moving the ball around and taking great shots,” said Peebles head coach Josh Arey. “Dillon Evans gave us a great lift in the second quarter and Jase Conley would do the same in the third.”

In that third period, Conley racked up 7 points while teammate Camron Gordley tallied 11, but the Rockets worked their way back into the game, outscoring the Indians 23-20 in the third to shrink the deficit to 50-44. In the final eight minutes, the Indians spent a lot of time at the charity stripe, but struggled, hitting just 7 of 15 attempts, but that was good enough. Tanner Arey tossed in 8 fourth quarter points and the Indians held on to post the 69-60 win.

Three Indians hit double figures in the win, with Camron Gordley pulling off the double double night with 20 points and 13 rebounds. Tanner Arey scored 12 while Tyler Ryan added 8 with 9 rebounds and 4 assists. Peebles had 24 second chance points in the game and only turned the ball over 11 times.

“We had three guys in double figures and two more with 9 so our balance was great,” said Coach Arey.

The Indians were right back in action on Saturday night, finishing up their back-to-back weekend with a home game against the Western Latham Indians. As they had the previous night, the Indians led throughout the game and made it four wins in a row by downing the Indians 77-65.

Peebles struck quick on Saturday night from long distance, getting a trio of three-pointers in the first quarter, one each from Jase Conley, Tanner Arey, and Camron Gordley, and taking a 19-15 lead. Gordley stayed hot in the second stanza, hitting three buckets with Tyler Ryan, Dillon Evans, and Ethan Parrett getting two scores apiece. Add in another Arey trey and the home team took a 40-29 lead to the halftime break.

Arey continued his long distance bombardment in the third quarter, nailing two more from beyond the arc, while cousin Scout Kremin hit three buckets as the Indians extended their lead to 56-43 after three. Again, as the night before, the Indians spent most of the fourth period at the free throw line but this time fared much better, converting 10 of 13 to seal the deal on a 77-65 win.

“We led throughout the game and pushed it to 18 points in the second half,” said Coach Arey. “Our ball movement keeps getting continually better and tonight we got great shots through ball reversal and relocating after the pass. We do have to get more focused on defense and eliminate our lapses but we are improving.”

Balanced scoring was on display again for the Indians, with again three players in double figures, led by 22 from Tanner Arey, who also dished out 6 assists. Camron Gordley scored 16 with Ethan Parrett adding 15 and 5 assists. Scout Kremin scored 8 and had a team-high 12 rebounds in the win. Tyler Ryan scored 7 and hauled down 9 boards as the Indians moved to 4-0 on the season.

Peebles was back in action on Tuesday, Dec. 15, again on their home court, as they hosted the West Union Dragons in SHAC play. The Indians then face a trip to one of the tougher venues in the conference on Friday night when they travel across county lines to battle the Eastern Warriors.
