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


Somerset —

After three quarters of play, the Warriors held a 61-44 lead over the Crimsons. In the frame, Southwestern outscored Manual, 26-19.
In the 25-point victory over Manual, Southwestern had three different players have big nights scoring-wise, as Edwards, Kapinga, and Collier, all scored in double figures. Manual, meanwhile, had only one player make it into double digits.
Kapinga’s 26 points were more than good enough for a game-high. The junior’s points were pretty well spread out, as he scored six points in the first quarter, eight in the second, seven in the third, and five in the fourth.
Following Kapinga was Edwards, who finished with 18 points in the game. Of Edwards’ 18 points, 12 of them came at the free-throw line. 
Collier wasn’t far behind Edwards, who tallied a double-double in the victory. Collier had 15 points and 11 rebounds in the contest. 
The leading scorer for the Crimsons was Jarrett Harness, who tallied 12 points in the game. 
 Wright was happy with his team’s performance after downing a good team in Manual, who defeated North Hardin earlier this year. North Hardin, along with Somerset, Pulaski County, and Southwestern, is one of four teams remaining in the winners bracket of the tournament.
“I thought it was a pretty good performance,” told Wright, who is in his second year as the Warrior basketball coach. “(DuPont Manual) beat North Hardin about two weeks ago, so they are pretty good. I thought we were really impressive defensively and we moved the ball well offensively.” 
“There were certain things in this game that were successful. Our guys followed the game plan and did exactly what they were supposed to do. We kept (Andy) Tillman and (Simon) Clifford both from having big games, so I thought that was a big plus for us.”
Southwestern returned to action last night, hosting the Somerset Briar Jumpers in the semifinals at the Wigwam. In the other winners bracket semifinal Pulaski County and North Hardin went toe-to-toe with another. 
MAN  - 12 13 19 7 - 51
SW - 16 19 26 15 - 76
DUPONT MANUAL (7-5): Harness 12, Reed 7, Thompson 6, Clifford 6, Tillman 5, Boyd 4, West 4, Sutton 2,  Dixon 1.
SOUTHWESTERN (11-2): Kapinga 26, Edwards 18, Collier 15, Schulz 7, Isaacs 5, Gaskin 3, Estes 2.

  • DOWNTOWN SIDEWALK FOTO.JPG Heated sidewalks provide sparks for workers
    A heated sidewalk to melt snow and ice was “quite the thing” a half century ago in a small town like Somerset. This town’s first and only electrically warmed sidewalk was installed facing Fountain Square alongside First and Farmers National Bank when the bank’s downtown headquarters building was constructed in 1963-64.
    As snow fell, the warm sidewalk melted a walkway about 2 feet wide alongside the bank. It was the talk of the town; quite a gimmick.
