Southwestern is bad luck for Black Cats, rolling 103-43

Somerset —

In the opening round of the second-annual Lake Cumberland Holi-day Hoops Classic South-western trampled the Black Cats of Prest-onsburg 103-43. 
“We shot the ball well early and we got a lot of people involved in the offence,” said coach Steve Wright. “Overall, it was a good night for our team, a lot of people got to play and these games are always good moral boosters.”
Thirteen of the 15 Warriors got their name in the scorebook Friday night contributing to the 103 points scored by Southwestern.
In the first quarter the Warriors put up 24 points, senior Justin Edwards scored 10 of those. The Black Cats made several bad passes, allowing Southwestern to capitalize from those errors. At the end of the opening quarter the warriors led by 13 points, 24-11.
In the second quarter Adam Isaacs came out strong scoring all 12 of his points in this quarter. Isaacs hit a three that got the team rolling with two more in the quarter one from Edwards and the other from Danny Butt. 
As the Warriors put on a shooting clinic in the first half, Prestonsburg was still making costly mistakes and was not able to get very many shot attempts to try and chip away at the lead the Warriors clinched onto. After scoring 35 points in the second quarter Southwestern led 59-22.
“We shot the ball well enough that we were able to put them (Prestonsburg) out of the game pretty early allowing us to play more guys,” said Wright.
The Warriors kept shooting the ball well even when the starters were pulled early in the third quarter. Hunter Cromer came off the bench and scored nine points in third after knocking down a three in the first half. Senior big man Robbie Miller stepped out beyond the arc to show his range, nailing a three in the third.
