Tigers sweep Warriors in doubleheader

(Continued)

LEBANON —

The main key of the run was turnovers. Danville forced the Tigers into eight second-quarter miscues.

“We were trying to make defense our best offense,” Barber said. “I thought in the second quarter it got us back in the game. We got some turnovers and got back in it. But they controlled the tempo for most of the game and that is why they won it.”

A jumper by Scott Amor to start the second half gave Danville its first and only lead of the game.

The Tigers responded with a 6-0 run and held the five-point lead throughout the quarter.

“I thought all of our guys moved the basketball tonight,” Hendrix said. “The turnovers were bad, but I still felt like, when we needed to get a score to keep the comfortable lead, we got it. They made a nice run and scored right out of the gate, then we went on a 6-0 run. I thought that our defense was the difference and we made some free throws down the stretch.”

Danville battled foul trouble all night and lost starting center Jackson Stone to his fifth foul with 3:29 left in the third quarter.  Stone was 4-of-6 from the field for eight points, but only played 7:08.

Fellow starter Scott Amor fouled out in the fourth quarter, and the Warriors committed 29 fouls in the game, leading to 38 Lebanon free-throw attempts.

“He never got into a flow,” Barber said of Stone. “That is why we left him in there with four fouls. At that time we were going for broke. When he was in there he capitalized, so we put him back in there and rolled the dice. Jackson had a good game going other than that, but you have to give Lebanon credit, they beat us and Albert Hendrix has done a great job with those guys. They are a hungry team.”
