MILDRED — They're all even now.

Mildred shot the ball well and used a balanced attack with four scorers hitting double figures to position itself for a playoff spot. Blooming Grove likely dropped out of the race with the loss.

Mildred (10-5, 7-4) moved into a third-place tie for third-place with Buffalo (18-10, 7-4). Blooming Grove fell to 17-9 and 5-5 in district play.

Nic Shimonek, who was held to 14 points in BG, led all scorers with 22 points Tuesday night. He made five 3-pointers. Mikey Muncy scored 16 points while Johnathan Harrison had 14 points and Connor Hill had 13.

Juanya Pyburn had 22 points and Daniel Pelzel had eight for the Lions.

Mildred guard Connor Hill opened the game with two 3-pointers and made a long 2-pointer at the halftime buzzer to highlight an entertaining first half.

Hill helped Mildred start the game with an 8-2 lead. Blooming Grove's Tyler Ellis tied the game at 12-12 with a 3-pointer with 3:37 to go in the first half.

Shimonek made a 3-pointer for a 17-12 lead late in the first quarter and the Eagles never trailed the rest of the game.

He made two more 3-pointers in the fourth quarter as the Mildred lead swelled to 20-plus points.

Harrison scored eight points in the fourth quarter and had a monster dunk that drew a loud applause from the Mildred fans.
