TERRE HAUTE -- Shakamak was poised to remain in the winner's bracket of the Wabash Valley Classic Friday afternoon at Terre Haute South High School.

But they committed six turnovers in the fourth quarter as the Lakers lost to Northview 55-48.

The Lakers turned a Northview turnover into a three-point play as a result of hustle by Patrick Green, a nifty pass from Dylan Collins and a layup and free throw by Brodie Crowe, giving Shakamak a 37-33 edge with six minutes and 55 seconds remaining.

SHS still led 39-37 after two free throws by Crowe at the 5:45 mark.

But the first of two fourth-quarter 3-pointers by Joe Ball, who was on the bench for most of the second half with four fouls, put the Knights ahead for good at 42-39.

Northview made 9 of 13 shots in the fourth as they outscored the Lakers 16-9 over the final five minutes.

Shakamak had as many field goal attempts -- six, making four -- as they did turnovers in the final eight minutes.

"Not to take anything away from Northview, but we let that game get away," said Laker coach Steve Brett, who's team received a first-round forfeit Thursday when Owen Valley did not make the trip to from Spencer to Terre Haute. "We had turnovers early and we had turnovers late.

"We missed free throws early and free throws late."

Northview used their size advantage, as they had an 11-5 edge in offensive rebounding. Center Ethan Wilson had 18 points and six rebounds while forward Jim Mace tallied 10 points and five rebounds.

"Our defense wasn't very good all night long," said Brett. "They scored 10 of their 20 points in the first half within six feet of the basket.

"In the second half, they scored 22 of their 35 points within six feet. I know they are bigger than we are, but we have to be able to compete better defensively and on the boards than we did."

Shakamak led early as Crowe's floater in the lane off glass put the Lakers in front 10-4.

They were up 10-6 at the quarter break before Northview battled back to tie the game at 14-all after the second of back-to-back treys by Craig Peters, who reached double figures with 10.

SHS used an old-fashioned three-point play by Green and two free throws by Collins to take a 19-14 lead at the 2:11 mark of the first half.

But like they did throughout, Northview battled back.

Wilson scored on consecutive putbacks and then he took a pass from Travis Hakman and buried a jumper at the buzzer, giving Northview its first lead at 20-19.

In the third quarter, NHS went ahead 29-24 after a steal by Mace was converted into two points by Wilson.

But it was Shakamak's time to rally as they scored seven straight points, taking a 31-29 lead after Green was set up for a two-pointer on a pass from Collins.

Another Mace, who had five assists, to Wilson play resulted in two more points and a 31-all tie going to the fourth quarter.

"We were off two weeks (13 days), but that should not affect us at all," said Brett. "Northview is a good team, but it was disappointing that they did not get to see our best today.

"Turnovers have been a problem all year. We have to get some things corrected as we move forward."

Crowe finished with 20 points and Green added 16.

The Lakers (3-4) will face Terre Haute North at 4 p.m. Saturday (today). The 5-2 Knights will meet Robinson, Ill. at 7 p.m. Saturday.
