The IHSAA boys basketball tournament reaches its next to last week as the semi-state round is now upon us. On the line is a berth in the state finals and a trip to Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Marion, Griffith, Warsaw and McCutcheon will be at Jeff. Indiana Basketball Source takes a look at the teams in the north semistate for 3A and 4A, taking place Saturday afternoon at Lafayette Jeff.
Warsaw likes to impose its tempo on the game. It was surprising to see Warsaw give up 17 points in the first quarter to South Bend Riley on Saturday morning. The Tigers locked down and held the Riley to 59 points in regulation. Warsaw took things to another level Saturday night against Crown Point.
Westview was the surprise participant of the North Judson Regional. Westview plays five freshmen in its rotation. The Warriors were only 11-11 in the regular season but nine of the losses were close. Canterbury played a strong schedule throughout the regular season. They were preparing for the postseason and it has paid off.
