SOUTH WHITLEY – Churubusco Head Boys Basketball Coach Mike McBride opted to go outside of his team’s comfort zone in an attempt to slow down Whitko’s star guard Logan Irwin.
Busco opened with a zone defense Saturday night at Whitko High School, something they have done little of this season. While the zone stifled Whitko’s sophomore leading scorer, teammates Alex Stoddard, a freshman, and Zac VanDeWater, a junior, picked up the slack before Irwin found his shot.
