BOURBON | Glen Cole's only basket of the game could not have come at a better time for Westville.

Cole followed up a Dan Warnke miss with a shot off the backboard and made a free throw to complete the 3-point play with 1:50 left in the game to give the Blackhawks the lead for good in a 46-44 win at the Class A sectional at Triton on Wednesday.

In the other game, Michigan City Marquette jumped out to a 13-point lead early in the second quarter and beat South Central 65-52. The Blackhawks and Blazers will square off in the semifinals on Friday.

Cole's basket came after the Dragons had taken a 42-41 lead on a Brian Snyder free throw. Warnke's 3-point attempt was no good, but the rebound came right to Cole and he absorbed contact and made the basket. The ensuing free throw gave Westville (11-10) a 44-42 lead.

"He got just a great rebound," Westville coach Rob Walker said of Cole's play. "He's been sitting on the bench, and he came up huge for us."

Argos (2-19), which lost 14 straight games to end the season, had two chances to win the game in the final six seconds, but 3-point attempts by Max Bailey and Snyder were no good.

The Blackhawks scored 33 points in the second half after managing just 13 in the first half. Warnke had 17 of his game-high 19 points in the second half.

"Dan Warnke started to find his stroke, and that's big," Walker said. "He stepped up and had a great second half."

Christian Porter and Shawn Gerron each scored six points for the Blackhawks. Brian Popp added nine rebounds.

Taylor Ogle scored 12 points to lead the Dragons, who led 23-9 late in the second quarter.

Tommy Anderson had 17 points on 5-of-9 shooting from behind the three-point line to lead the Blazers (11-10) past the Satellites in the second game.

The Blazers led 21-8 early in the second quarter, and the Satellites (10-11) were to get closer than nine the rest of the game. Marquette shot 8-of-17 from the field in the first quarter, including 3-of-5 from behind the arc.

"We didn't go inside much at all in the first half, much less than I thought we would," Marquette coach Donovan Garletts said. "Shots were falling. We were getting open looks, and they were falling."

Adeleke Solanke recorded a double-double for the Blazers with 10 points and 16 rebounds. Ryan Fazekas scored eight points and had eight rebounds.

Adam Clindaniel scored 18 points to lead South Central. Ben Rosebaum chipped in with 12.
