To this basketball fan's way of thinking, a critical characteristic of a good point guard is to handle high energy defensive pressure at the end of a game and to make all free throws that result from the fouls an opponent must commit in an effort to make up a score deficit. Senior Austin Schneider and freshman Colin Shaw did just that in the closing minutes as Indian Hill fought off a frenetic effort by Hughes Center at their home gym to overtake the Braves or force overtime. While the Big Red came within a basket, those free throws allowed the Braves to match points with Hughes in the fourth quarter and leave with a quality 65-57 road win.

Friday night was a "clean sweep" for Indian Hill Boys High School Basketball, as the Freshman, Junior Varsity, and Varsity teams each defeated its respective Mariemont opponent by a margin of greater than 20 points. Each team appeared to have matured greatly in the week since the season openers.
For the Varsity team, perhaps it was the new warm-ups that had the Braves looking, and shooting, like a totally different team than the one that played just one week earlier. A sure fire formula for success is to outscore one's opponent in each of the four quarters played, which the Braves did, beginning with a fast paced 21 point output in the first quarter, while the Warriors could manage only 9 points themselves. Such a great start to the game, and adding to the lead after each quarter, allowed the Braves to ultimately have all of their Varsity players see action in a solid 67-41 victory over Cincinnati Hills League opponent Mariemont. An exciting exclamation point to a well-played game was added when senior guard Anish Bhati hit his long three point attempt to the delight of teammates and fans.
