Southwestern 83, Somerset 56


Somerset —

Jeff Cothron, the head coach of the Jumpers, was very disappointed in the way his team played in the 27-point loss to the Warriors.
“On a scale of one to ten, we played at probably a one - we just didn’t show up tonight,” stated the Somerset hoops coach. “We did the same thing against West Jessamine - we’re looking for consistency. We play one really good game, play mediocre a couple of games, and then lay an egg one game.”
“Southwestern played well and shot the ball well, but we didn’t show up to play.”
Southwestern continued to roll in the second quarter of action, as the Warriors outscored Somerset by a margin of 22-15. At the intermission, the Warriors went into the locker room with an 18-point, 42-24 lead over the Jumpers. 
The Warriors outlasted Somerset, 21-10, in the third frame to take a 63-34 advantage after three quarters. Somerset would outscore the Warriors in the fourth by two points, but it was too little, too late for the Jumpers. 
Southwestern, scoring-wise, was led by Isaacs, who came off the bench to finish with 20 points. Edwards was right behind Isaacs with 19 points, while Kapinga hit double figures with 13 points. Edwards led all players with eight rebounds.
The Jumpers had two players make it into double figures, Williams and T. Dishman. Williams’ 14 points was a team-high for Somerset, while T. Dishman finished with 11 points.
With the win, the Warriors advanced to the championship game, where they earned a match-up with another cross-town rival, Pulaski County.
“Since you’ve got to play four games anyway, you might as well play in the game that means the most,” Wright concluded. “It will be a good experience for our kids.”
SHS - 9 15 10 22 - 56
SW - 20 22 21 20 - 83
SOMERSET (9-3): Williams 14, T. Dishman 11, Weddle 8, Dockery 7, R. Dishman 6, Gordon 5, Cheuvront 2, Farris 2, McWilliams 1.
SOUTHWESTERN (12-2): Isaacs 20, Edwards 19, Kapinga 13, Gaskin 8, Hansford 6, Collier 5, Schulz 5, Phelps 3, Carrington 2, Groves 2, Burkhart 1.
