Gary Franklin, Sports Writer

A weekend of Jac-Cen-Del Eagle vs Batesville Bulldog basketball followed the Thanksgiving holiday. On Friday night, November 25, the high school girls' games were contested at JCDHS, followed by a Saturday afternoon freshman boys' game and the nightcap of HS boys' action contested at BHS.
Friday night @ JCDHS
One of the biggest highlights of the Friday night JCD vs Batesville girls HS basketball game at JCDHS, was the pre-varsity game singing of "The National Anthem" by JCD junior, Brytton Rogers. Many remarked even at Saturday's games that it was possibly the best they had ever heard. Most honorable!
Lady Eagle JV Game
JCD Lady Eagle JV Coach Matt McNew's team was the only one left standing against the Bulldogs when the battles were over, scrapping to record a three point, 30-27 victory.

Boys HS Varsity Game
The Eagle varsity boys found their efforts fruitless against the 2012 "Land of the Giants" Bulldogs. Battling against a team that has only one player under the 6' mark, and the rest ranging from 6' 2" to 6' 8", the Eagles were quite simply out sized.
Quarter One
Eagles' efforts kept them in the game, capturing their first lead at 6-4, then 8-7 before trailing at the close of quarter one 12-18.
Quarter Two
Second period action resulted in a senior Jayson Purdy basket at the get go, with sophomore teammate Adam Siebert connecting on a turn around jump shot shortly thereafter to pull the Eagles to within four at 16-20.
As the second quarter progressed so did the Eagle deficit, as the teams headed to the locker rooms for the halftime break with BHS up by 23 points at 41-18 JCD.
Quarter Three
Highlights for the Eagles were few and far between in second half action. Senior Purdy's steal and lay up cut the Bulldog advantage to 15 at one juncture, but periods end found the Bulldogs leading by 25. A 3-point buzzer beater launched by Eagle senior Andrew Snyder ended third period scoring, BHS 53-31 JCD.
Quarter Four
Final scoring of the contest was accomplished by senior Eagle Codey Martin's delivery of two FT's and junior teammate Cord Comer's steal and break away lay up.
Both counted but were merely too little too late for the Eagles who fell by the final score of 44-66 to the Bulldogs.
