Coming off their best performance of the season in their final game of 2019, Oblong High School's boys' basketball team was hoping to build off that to start the 2020 portion of their schedule Tuesday night (Jan. 7), but their opponent had other ideas.

The Panthers were blitzed from the start and never got untracked on their way to a 60-37 loss to St. Elmo-Brownstown.

Oblong fell behind 23-7 after one quarter, then was outscored 15-9 in the second period for a 38-16 halftime deficit. Things got worse in the third quarter, as the Panthers were outscored 20-10 to make the score 58-26 heading into the final period. With the clock running continuously in the fourth quarter due to the IHSA's 30-point mercy rule, the Panthers outscored St. Elmo-Brownstown 11-2 to reach the final margin.

Caleb Black led OHS with 16 points, while Caleb Newman and Jon Littlejohn scored six points apiece, Hayden Johnson tossed in four, Caleb Hawkins netted three and K.J. Davis added two.

Bryton Pruett led St. Elmo-Brownstown with 19 points, while Andy Goldsborough and Jaxson Tish also reached double figures with 12 and 11 points, respectively.

Oblong also lost the junior varsity game 64-14.

Javen Sweitzer led OHS with six points, while J.D. McPherson scored four.
