Family matters

INDIANAPOLIS -- So here we are at Bankers Life Fieldhouse for the Class 3A state finals matchup between Norwell and Guerin Catholic, and here comes a man with a dilemma.

His name's Greg VanMeter, and he's broadcasting the game for the Wells County Voice, an internet broadcasting outfit. He's also the father of Josh VanMeter, Norwell's standout point guard.

"Yeah, I thought long and hard about whether I wanted to do it, but they talked me into it," he said with a laugh.

The reason?

Apparently there are some Norwell alumni/fans who'll be listening in from Florida, where they're on spring break.

Now that's an audience.
