Everett Duncan day-to-day with foot injury

Harrison High School’s 6-foot-6 junior forward Everett Duncan is listed day-to-day with a foot injury, said Warriors boys’ basketball coach Bryan Speer.

Duncan was injured late in Harrison’s 82-64 loss to Columbus North on Saturday in the Hall of Fame Securities Classic at New Castle and did not play in the Warriors’ 70-53 loss to Mount Vernon (Fortville) later that day. Duncan is leading Harrison in scoring (22-point average) and rebounding (eight.)

The Warriors (3-4), who have lost three in a row, will play Guerin Catholic on Saturday at Indianapolis Tech.

Jared Chestnut, a 6-1 senior who has been out two weeks with a fractured vertebrae, will be sidelined another two to four weeks, Speer said. Chestnut is averaging six points and three rebounds.

Mater Dei at Mount Vernon boys’ game ppd. to Tuesday

The Mater Dei at Mount Vernon boys’ basketball game, originally scheduled for Saturday, has been postponed to Tuesday, weather permitting.
The Mount Vernon at Mater Dei girls will play a varsity-only game at 6 p.m. Tuesday. The JV game has been canceled.
