Catholic edges Red Devils, 55-50

Feb. 10—Luke Beickman scored a game-high 19 points, including eight points in the fourth quarter, to lead the Owensboro Catholic High School boys' basketball team to a 55-50 win over district foe Owensboro in front of a raucous crowd Friday night at the Sportscenter.

The victory improved the Aces to 16-6 overall and 3-3 against 9th District competition, though Friday's outing was only a preview of the already-determined first round of the upcoming district tournament.
