SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Un-like I.U.â€™s three-point buzzer-beater to beat No. 1 Kentucky Saturday, Whitkoâ€™s attempt at a final comeback against Wawasee came up short.
After trailing 59-40 just before the fourth quarter, the Wildcats rallied to out score the Warriors 16-4 in less than three minutes of play in South Whitley Saturday, hours after the Hoosiersâ€™ win over Kentucky.
But the comeback wasnâ€™t enough and the â€™Cats lost 72-66.
â€śWe showed signs of improvement,â€ť Whitko Head Coach Rob Irwin said. â€śWe have young guys that arenâ€™t very experienced yet.â€ť
Whitkoâ€™s comeback began less than a minute into the fourth quarter with a 3-pointer by Logan Iwrin.
