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.

  • Kentucky dubbed ‘houseboat capital’ by lawmakers

    Lake Cumberland’s rising waters and reputation as a “Houseboat Lake” no doubt were inspiration for Kentucky Sen. Chris Girdler’s resolution naming Kentucky the “Houseboat Capital of the World.” The resolution was adopted recently by the Kentucky Senate, making the title official.
    The houseboat designation made national news. A story and photographs about Kentucky’s houseboat industry and Somerset being the birthplace of houseboat construction were published online March 27 by Houseboat Magazine, a Harris Publishing Store publication based in Idaho Falls, ID. Houseboat Magazine will host National Houseboat Expo 2014 June 6-8 at State Dock Marina on Lake Cumberland.
