They say revenge is a dish best served cold. On a frigid Saturday night, the Tribe laid the smackdown on the Merrillville Pirates with a final score of 70-50.

“Scoring 70 in a JV game was pretty unbelievable and doing it against a rival made it even better,” Michael Barrins (11) said.

Coach Andrew Locke, Math, took pride in his squad’s offensive onslaught.

“We did a nice job of recognizing the different defenses they were in and we shot well. The last few games, we have shot well,” Locke said.

On Dec. 14, the Indians suffered a tough loss at the hands of the Pirates, so the team wanted to come back strong against Merrillville on Saturday.

“Since [we lost the first game], we wanted to get revenge. [The] last game [against them] was in the back of our heads tonight,” Griffin said.

JV will proceed with their campaign on Saturday, Jan. 26, where they will battle it out with the Chesterton Trojans, another DAC rival, at 10:30 a.m.
