EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Boys sectional basketball champions were crowned last weekend, and one of the surprise winners was the North Huskies.

It had been 20 years since the North boys basketball team won a sectional, but that all changed this past Saturday night when they beat Castle in overtime.

Confidence may not have been high, after a 1-6 start, but as the Huskies began to understand Coach Roach's expectations, the wins started to follow.

That confidence enabled them to come back from a 12-point halftime deficit and beat Castle for the sectional.

The Huskies will tip off the 4A regional Saturday morning at 9:30 against Center Grove up at Seymour High school.
