While the Freshman team won big (to remain undefeated), and Junior Varsity held on for a very gratifying victory, the Indian Hill Boys Varsity Basketball Team fell behind early and, despite a frenzied fourth quarter, never came as close as the final 62-56 score in defeat to cross-town rival Madeira. Down 11-4 after the first quarter and 30-16 at the half, poor shooting cost the Braves and a 25 point effort in the final period would not be enough to catch the Mustangs in their home gym. For the game, Indian Hill shot a dismal 32% from the field, compared to Madeira's 49%. Interestingly, both teams had the same number of made field goals (20), but the difference came in three point field goals made, with Madeira ahead, 7 to 3. The Braves actually took 21 (yes, 21!, 62 vs. 41) more field goal attempts than did the Mustangs, but the number made, including only 3 of 20 from behind the three point line, clearly was the difference in the game.

INDIAN HILL – The good news among the hard working swimmers at Indian Hill High School is that tapering begins soon. For the non-aquatic, that means workouts are trimmed down prior to big meets.
Coach Emily Hardy will cut back her non-club swimmers shortly, with the club kids eventually following suit.
Fresh off the Southwest Ohio Coaches Classic Jan. 17-18, Indian Hill is preparing for the postseason that begins with the Cincinnati Hills League Championships. Many area swim schools use the Classic meet featuring the Tri-State's finest as a measuring stick.

Each of the Braves' Freshman, Junior Varsity, and Varsity boys basketball teams won by a margin of 20 points or better over the Reading Blue Devils on Tuesday. It was a good day for the Indian Hill program, not so much for Reading.
After a slow start and at a slight 10 points to 8 deficit after the first period, the Varsity Braves scored 62 points over the next three quarters and handily won the game, beating Reading by a 70-41 final score. The Braves picked up the pace of the game, passed the ball well which led to better shot attempts, consequently making a higher percentage of shots to compliment aggressive defensive play against a smaller Blue Devil squad. Another big key to a well-played game and victory: balanced scoring.
