Hornets wrap winning season

The Cowden-Herrick Hornet basketball program wrapped up a winning season in 2012-2013, a conference title, and historic wins.

Cowden-Herrick finished the season at 16-11 overall and 6-1 in the Egyptian-Illini Conference, earning the EIC Championship.The Hornets knocked off St. Anthony for the first time in 35 years and Neoga for the first time in 10 years. C-H won their Homecoming Game against rival Beecher City and beat preseason favorite St. Elmo twice. They also were St. Elmo Tourney Consolation Champs.

Cowden-Herrick had two heartbreakers. They lost to Altamont twice, by a total of three points. Once they lost by two in OT. The other time in the regional by one point. That kept them from playing state-bound Nokomis.

The Hornets did all this with the help of 1200-point senior scorer Luke Moore. Moore was a 1st Team pick in the NTC conference, 1st Team in the EIC conference, was voted the MVP of the EIC regular season by 14 points over the second place vote-getter. He also was named to the St. Elmo Tourney all-tourney team.

Moore scored 406 points and grabbed 286 rebounds this year, averaging 17.1 points and 10.6 boards to average a double-double. He nailed 41 3-pointers. Moore didn’t just score. He dished a team-high 40 assists. On defense, he had 44 steals and 19 deflections. He also wrapped up 210 defensive boards.

Although he was the only Hornet to average double figures, two other Hornets were near double figure scorers and an up-and-comer joined the party late in the season. Moore wasn’t the Hornet only stinger.

Senior Tyson Morgason was Moore’s Sundance Kid to his Butch Cassidy, early in the season. Morgason scored 252 points this season, averaging 9.3 points per game. He shot 74% from the line and 38% from the arc. Morgason was named Honorable Mention in the EIC conference.
