GARY | When it comes to public school basketball in Gary, West Side is still the big cat in the yard.

The Cougars won their fourth straight Northwestern Conference crown on Tuesday night with their 57-47 win over Roosevelt.

Even though West Side's record doesn't show it, the Cougars (8-9, 2-0) are clicking right now. They will be a tough out in next week's sectional, which was evident in the first and fourth quarters.

West Side went on a 10-3 run in the fourth over a span of 6:23 to put both the win and title away.

Marlon Northern, who finished with a team-high 16 points, played like he was ready for the postseason, hitting his first four shots and scoring eight of West Side's first 10 points.

Northern was still perfect after the second quarter ended, as the forward scored four of the team's eight points in the frame.

West Side guard Ramone Adkins added six points, three assists, and two rebounds in the first half.

Roosevelt (9-5, 1-1) used an 8-2 run in the second quarter to climb back within 26-24 at the half.

After West Side opened the second half on a 5-0 run, Roosevelt drained three consecutive shots from downtown, eventually taking its first lead of the game 37-34 at 3:06 in the third.

The Cougars scored eight of the quarter's last 11 points to take back the lead, as the host Panthers trailed 42-40 after three.

West Side guard TuQuary Scott chipped in with 11, while Tremain Grubbs added ten.

Tevin Farris led Roosevelt with 12 points, including two 3-pointers.
