CARLISLE - Carlisle, fighting to make sure it qualifies for the District 3 Class AAAA playoffs, had a little too much incentive for Greencastle-Antrim on Wednesday night.

The Herd copped a 64-52 non-league boys basketball victory by hitting their free throws down the stretch and extending their lead.

"We battled back and made it competitive - we had it to 53-49 with about two minutes to go - but when we missed we had to foul them and they made their foul shots at the end," Blue Devil coach Gary Martin said.

"Their 3-2 zone gave us trouble early and we were impatient on offense. We shot more than we should have."

Carlisle (12-10) led 26-21 at the half and increased it to 44-31 after three periods.

Jordan Neff (12) led the Herd in scoring and J.D. Hughes had 11, plus Jerome Evans was 7-for-8 at the foul line in the fourth period.

For Greencastle (16-5), Zach Faulkner scored 20 points, including four 3-pointers, and Joel Zola added 14.

Martin said, "Carlisle played like they were fighting for a playoff spot and we played like we were already there and didn't need it - and that's not what I wanted to see. We have some time to get prepared for districts now."
