Tanagers down C-Hawks 44-33 by Jim Prosser The Vermillion Tanagers downed the Canton C-Hawks 44-33 in boys' basketball Feb. 27 at Canton as the winners led after each quarter.

"I wasn't sure how we would play having almost two weeks since our last game," said Vermillion varsity coach Jason Huska. "We came out a little slow but then got back on track. I felt the difference was our defense. Canton slowed things down and so we didn't have a lot of chances on offense. Our defense was challenged and I thought everyone played hard. Another good road win!"

The Tanagers committed only 9 turnovers while forcing 19.
