Indiana signee and Mr. Basketball candidate Derek Elston was on the verge of seeing his high school season end in the sectional. His Tipton Blue Devils, No. 1 in Class 2-A, were down 38-30 with six minutes remaining. Tipton responded with a 15-0 run to get past No. 7 Oak Hill, 48-44, in a first round sectional game.

Elston finished with 19 points and 14 rebounds. Tipton will play Eastern on Friday night.
