INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.  — An exception to the backcourt violation and a clarification regarding specifications of the ball comprise the changes approved for the 2018-19 high school basketball season.

Rule 9-9-1 states that “a player shall not be the first to touch the ball after it has been in team control in the frontcourt, if he/she or a teammate last touched or was touched by the ball in the frontcourt before it went to the backcourt.”

An exception was approved to note that any player who was located in the backcourt may recover a ball that is deflected from the frontcourt by the defense. Theresia Wynns, NFHS director of sports and officials, said the committee approved the exception to ensure that a team is not unfairly disadvantaged on a deflected pass.

The score was not indicative of much of the game. Darlington led only briefly in the first half, but the Eagles were unable to put the Redbirds away until the waning minutes of the second half.

Trailing by 11 at the 10:55 mark, the Redbirds outscored the Eagles 17-8 to cut the lead to 55-53 with 5:37 remaining. The Eagles sealed their destiny with 18-2 run to end the game.

Two-time defending champion Stevens Point (23-4) will go for its third straight championship following a 48-41 win over Madison Memorial in the Division 1 semifinals of the State Boys Basketball Tournament at the Kohl Center.

The Panthers led throughout most of the first half and led by as many as seven which was the largest lead of the period by either team. The Spartans shot 59 percent for the half, including 2-for-2 from beyond the arc. However, the Panthers hit 3-of-5 three-point attempts and held a 5-0 edge from the charity stripe to take a 26-22 lead into intermission.

Stevens Point increased its lead to eight points early in the second half before the Spartans responded with a 9-0 to take their only lead of the half. A basket by Joey Hauser at the 7:20 mark broke a 35-35 tie and gave the Panthers a lead they would not relinquish.

Arrowhead (21-5) advances to the Division 1 championship game with a thrilling 63-62 overtime victory over Brookfield Central in the semifinals of the State Boys Basketball Tournament at the Kohl Center in Madison Friday night.

The entire game was closely contested. Both teams held leads in the first half. The Lancers largest lead of the first period was by virtue of scoring the first six points of the game. The Warhawks had a 6-0 run of their own to take a five-point lead that matched their largest lead in the half before going into halftime with a 28-25 lead. Each team struggled finding the range from beyond the arc in the half, combining to shoot 2-of-21.

The Lancers heated up in the second half. They went on a 13-1 run midway through the period to open a double-digit lead. They led by as many as 12 with 5:27 remaining at 56-44. That’s when Arrowhead began its three-point barrage and a 12-0 run to end regulation. 

Mark Matejic hit the first three-pointer to get the Warhawks deficit to under double digits. Ben Seefeld cut the lead to six, and Matejic made his second three-pointer under a span of two minutes. Three free throws in the last 2:37 tied the game at 56-56 at the end of regulation. Tommy Durand rolled in a one-handed shot on a short drive with eight seconds to play in overtime to provide the margin of victory.

Trevell Cunningham led the Warhawks, falling one assist shy of a triple-double with 17 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. Seefeld tossed in 16 points; Alec Hamilton added 13; and Matejic scored 11. Gage Malensek led all scorers with 18 points for the Lancers, and Andres Peralta-Werns added 17 with Cole Nau chipping in with 12 points and 11 rebounds.

The Red Raiders also enjoyed a considerable advantage in the paint, outscoring the Warriors 40-20 in the lane and outrebounding them 43-30 for the game.

Barneveld (25-2) will play for the State title for the first time in school history following its 72-52 victory  over Columbus Catholic in the Division 5 semifinal of the State Boys Basketball Tournament at the Kohl Center in Madison Friday afternoon.

The Golden Eagles and Dons changed leads five times and were tied four times in the first half. Barneveld possessed a 30-26 advantage at halftime. In the second half, Barneveld led 42-41 at 12:02 when the Golden Eagles went on a 20-2 run take control of the game.

However, the Miners erased an eight-point deficit early in the second half with a 19-4 run, putting the Miners up 45-38 at the nine-minute mark of the second half. They increased their lead to double digits at 51-41 with 6:11 remaining. The closest the Macks could get the rest of the way was eight points.

The turnaround in the second half was evident in the shooting statistics. The Macks went cold from the field, hitting on only 29 percent of their shots in the second half. They made just 2-of-17 three-point tries in the game. The Miners scorched the nets at a 63 percent clip in the second period and 52 percent for the game.

Darlington 63, Cameron 52

Destiny (24-1) will play for the State championship in Division 3 Saturday following a 71-54 victory over Roncalli in the semifinals of the State Boys Basketball Tournament at the Kohl Center in Madison Thursday evening.

Romaine Robinson came off the bench to ignite the Eagles in the first half, scoring 15 points of his team-high 19 points. His efforts contributed to Destiny’s 21-0 scoring advantage from players  off the bench in the half. Destiny used a 9-0 run to end the period to take a double-digit lead into the locker room at halftime, 35-23.

The Jets fought back to get within seven points at 48-41 with 10:47 remaining, but a 14-4 Eagles’ run extinguished any hopes for a Roncalli comeback.

Darlington (27-0) remains undefeated with a 63-52 triumph over Cameron in the Division 4 semifinals of the State Boys Basketball Tournament Thursday evening at the Kohl Center.

The Comets scored first, but it would be their only lead of the game. Ryan Glendenning hit a three-point shot that put the Redbirds up to stay at the 16:28 mark of the first half. The first period statistics were relatively even. The difference that led to a 35-22 halftime lead for the Redbirds was their 6-1 edge in three-pointers and their 13-0 advantage in points off turnovers.

In the second half, Cameron could only trim its deficit down six points with just under 11 minutes to play before Darlington answered by building its advantage back to 13 points with five minutes remaining and again at the 1:14 mark. The Redbirds clinched the victory by making 11-of-12 attempts from the charity stripe in the final 2:39.

Trevor Johnson led all scorers with 20 points for the Redbirds. Glendenning added 17 points, and Wll Schwartz chipped in with 14. Hunter Johnson contributed a team-high seven rebounds and six assists. Cameron was led by Victor Martinez with 18 points and a game-high 10 rebounds.Gunner Wilder also scored in double figures with 13 points.
