Warriors use big run to pull away from Manual, 76-51

Somerset —  

In part to a 14-3 run in the second quarter, Southwestern was able to pull away from visiting DuPont Manual by a final tally of 76-51 in the Lake Cumberland Holiday Hoops Classic on Friday evening at the Wigwam.
With the 25-point victory over the Crimsons of Manual, the home-standing Warriors upped their record to 11-2 on the year and earned a spot in the semifinals of the first annual tournament against a very familiar foe, Somerset. 
Manual’s William West cut the Warrior lead to 16-14 with a basket just over a minute into the second quarter of hoops action. Juniors David Kapinga and Justin Edwards would both tally a score for Southwestern, allowing them to run out to a six-point, 20-14 advantage. The pair of baskets would spark the 14-3 run.
Andy Tillman knocked down a trey with 5:50 remaining until halftime to lessen the lead to three points, but free-throws from Edwards, along with a steal and lay-up from Kapinga would allow the ‘Blue and Orange’ to run past Manual at 24-17. 
One free-throw from Edwards, along with two from sophomore Isaiah Collier, gave the Warriors a ten-point lead at 27-17. With 3:41 left in the frame, sophomore Adam Isaacs converted on lay-up to put Steve Wright’s ball club ahead by 12 points. Isaacs’ basket would be the final score on the 14-3 run. 
At the halftime break, Manual went into the locker room trailing the Warriors by ten points at 35-25. 
The third period, just like much of the contest, was a free-throw shooting contest. In the third quarter, the Warriors went to the charity stripe on 12 occasions. How many of those free-throw attempts did Southwestern make? How about all 12. 
Edwards tallied seven made free-throws, while Kapinga hit three and Schulz converted on two attempts. For the game, Southwestern went 25 of 33 from the line for 76 percent.
