WEST TERRE HAUTE — Sullivan finished perfect in the West Division of the Western Indiana Conference with a 55-39 win over host West Vigo on Thursday night.
The Golden Arrows improved to 9-3, 5-0 in the conference while West Vigo slipped to 4-9, 1-4 in the WIC.
Sullivan scored the first 11 points and was challenged. After that start, the only time the Arrows were not ahead by double digits was at 11-2 after a basket by Kaleb Hannah of the Vikings.
Sullivan was able to exploit center Ike Chastain early. The 6-5 junior scored eight of his 14 points in the first quarter as Sullivan led 19-2 at the first break. Chastain added six rebounds and two blocks.
The Arrows, who made 8 of 15 shots to begin the game, only made 1 of 10 attempts in the second quarter, but still led 23-10 at intermission.
Ty Drake led the winners with 16 points and four steals, giving him 76 points in his last three games (25.3 ppg).
Shane Garner made a pair of 3-pointers, like Drake, and tallied 10 points.
Sam Steimel also made two 3-pointers as part of his eight-point performance. He also contributed five rebounds, three rebounds and one steal.
Despite West Vigo making 5 of 11 shots in the fourth quarter, Sullivan limited the Vikings to 35 percent shooting (14 of 40).
Sullivan will play at Vincennes Lincoln on Saturday.
