    NEW HAVEN – Despite coaching a Class 4A program and at the largest school in the NECC, Angola first-year coach Andy Thomas is still dealing with a numbers crunch.

Blackhawk can play better

Blackhawk Christian certainly didn't play like the 10th-ranked team in Class A on Tuesday in a 66-50 home loss to Adams Central.

It was the team's worst performance of the season, considering who they were playing and where.

The Braves (12-9) have lost this year by bigger margins but those were to bigger schools in 3A No. 6 New Haven (74-56), 4A No. 3 Hamilton Southeastern (101-74) and 4A No. 14 Marion (79-62).

Two of those games were on the road, while Hamilton Southeastern was on a neutral court.

The Braves entered the game with the 2A Jets (11-8) 6-0 at home, including wins against SAC teams in Snider and Wayne.

"My dads always use to tell me things are never as bad as they seem after a loss and never as good after a win," Blackhawk Christian coach Marc Davidson said. "I try to keep that perspective. We know we are better than what we showed and so we just have to bounce back Friday night (at home vs. Heritage) and play better."
