Carmel rallied to beat New Haven in the IHSAA Class 4A Boy's Basketball Regional on Saturday at Marion.Here were five keys to the Greyhounds' victory:5 Keys to Carmel's victory over New Haven

New Haven saw its season come to an end at the hands of top-ranked Carmel on Saturday night at the Class 4A Marion Regional. Here is how they did it:

Carmel did a great job limiting Beachem's good looks at the basket all night. That said, you would like to see Beachem be more aggressive at getting the ball and getting to the basket, but I just don't think Beachem is that type of player. That's not a knock at all, he is just more of a team player and selfless to a fault at times.Carmel is the odds-on favorite to win the Class 4A state title, and for good reason. If they win it, a big part will be their three-point shooting, finished 7-of-12 from 3-point range against New Haven. Ryan Cline is deadly from anywhere on the floor, hitting 4-of-5.Good luck trying to make up points on Carmel by putting them at the free throw line. The Greyhounds converted 22-of-26 free throws, including 15-of-17 in the pivotal fourth quarter.The Bulldogs got some good looks in the final few minutes of Saturday's game, but couldn't knock them down. Some of that was due to the quickness of the shots. New Haven may not have taken ill-advised shots late against Carmel as much as it took them way too early. Working the ball inside to Steve McElvene or go to the basket and attempting to draw a foul may have worked better than settling for long jumpers just a few seconds after crossing the time line.As good as Carmel’s starting five is, it has no bench. The first time the Greyhounds have serious foul trouble in a game, they will lose. Of course, they only have to win two more games for the program’s second-consecutive state championship.
