Maroons end tourney with 92-64 loss to Doss

Somerset — Pulaski County didn't end their Lake Cumberland Holiday Hoops Classic as good as they wanted to, falling to Doss by a final tally of 92-64 on Monday afternoon at PC Gym.

The Maroons kept up with visiting Doss early on, but once Doss' pressure increased, Pulaski County's composure decreased. After that collapse, the Maroons fell by a 28-point margin, dropping their record to 7-3 on the year.

Maroon hoops head coach Al Gover says that his team must be able to respond from turnovers if they want to be successful.

"It looked like two very competitive teams playing there in the first quarter," told Gover. "The second half, they had some pressure on us and we made three straight turnovers that led to baskets for Doss. From there, we kind of just gave in - we didn't show a lot of fight and show a lot of composure after that. We have got to become more consistent in a game like that."

Sean Ross, a junior, led the charge for the Maroons with a club-high 16 points. Fellow junior Blake Burton chimed in with 14 points, while sophomore Riley Hall finished in double figures with 11 points. Peyton Gover had 8 points on the evening, while big man Austin Clark added in with 7 points. Trevor Ridner scored 4 points, Steffan Stephens tallied 3 points, and Cam Smith had 1 point.

The Maroons finished the Lake Cumberland Holiday Hoops Classic with a 2-2 record, picking up wins over Somerset and Cumberland County, while having losses to tournament champion Saint Xavier and Doss.

Pulaski County will crosstown rival Somerset in a 47th District showdown on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. at PC Gym.

"Since we've played four days in a row, we're going to take off New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, and then come back practice once or twice on Thursday to get ready for Friday's game against Somerset."
