HAMMOND | The Bishop Noll boys basketball team is like a prize fighter. It will take the opposition's best shot on the jaw, but ultimately will come away as the victor.

That's what happened Saturday night in the Times No. 3 Warriors' 84-73 nonconference win over city rival Hammond.

The momentum appeared to shift at the 1:32 mark of the third quarter. Noll senior guard Larry Crisler stole the ball and finished the breakaway with a thunderous dunk, capping a 9-2 run.

Hammond (2-3) didn't score in the fourth quarter until Aaron Haggard's layup at the 6:37 mark, while Noll scored eight points in that span.

Noll (4-0) trailed most of the first quarter, but thanks to Marquis Tarver, it came back and held an 18-17 lead after one.

Tarver tallied precisely half of the Warriors' points in the first half behind four 3-pointers and a perfect 6-for-6 from the foul line for 18.

There were seven lead changes in the second quarter, including three within the last 90 seconds of the period. After Hammond went on a 7-1 run, Noll responded with an 8-2 spurt to go into halftime ahead 39-38.

The Warriors came out on fire in the aforementioned third, hitting four of their first five shots. After going scoreless in the first half, Bishop Noll senior guard Tyreon Gates scored all 15 of his points after the break.

Tarver finished with 25, while Crisler added 23 points, five assists, and five steals.

Haggard scored 22 points for the Wildcats.
