Class 1A No. 1 Lanesville had an 11-game win streak halted on the road on Monday night, Dec. 28, suffering a 61-46 setback at No. 11 Tecumseh.

That outcome, coupled with a subsequent Tecumseh win over Loogootee on Saturday, caused a shakeup in this week’s rankings.

Trinity Lutheran (13-3) moved to No. 1, while Lanesville (12-2) slipped to No. 2. Tecumseh (6-5) jumped to No. 5, moving past Loogootee (6-3), now at No. 6.

Tecumseh used a big second quarter to take control of its game with Lanesville. The Lady Eagles led 17-13 after one quarter but were outscored 20-3 in the second for a 33-20 half-time deficit.

Gracie Adams led the Lady Eagles with 11 points.

The Lady Eagles were hampered by 29 turnovers and struggled from the field, shooting 36% on 18 of 50. They were 5 of 22 (23%) from three-point range.

Lanesville bounced back two nights later to rout visiting Floyd Central 50-20.

Adams scored 23 points and grabbed five rebounds, while Linzie Wernert added 15 points and had six boards.
