The Panthers, quite frankly, were sick of stall ball. So when the opportunity arose in Saturday’s championship game against Gary’s Bowman Academy to get out and run, Park Tudor jumped all over it.
No. 1 Park Tudor throttled fifth-ranked Bowman 79-57 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse to claim its second consecutive 2A crown as senior point guard Yogi Ferrell carved up the press on the front end and his teammates buried 3-pointers on the backside.
“Drive and kick,” said the 5-11 Ferrell, the Indiana University recruit who tied a championship game record with 12 assists. “That’s what coach (Ed Schilling) told us before the game. Paul (Bayt) hit some shots early in the game and that opened up the game for us. We just took it from there.”
