Boys Varsity Basketball · Another Win! Cats Dominate Opener In Holiday Tourney


Lexington tied a school record of 12 straight wins to open a season when they made quick work of the Jellico (TN) Blue Devils, 73-37.  It was the opening game for the Wildcats in the 24th Annual Hilton Sandestin Beach Blast in Florida.  They will take to the court again tomorrow at 4:30 PM when they face the William Blount Governors from Maryville, Tennessee.

In their first 4 possessions Thursday afternoon, Lexington sunk 3 three-pointers from Mason Carver, Ryan Green, and Bradley Foulks.  Green was also 2 of 2 from the stripe as the Cats took an 11-0 lead after just 75 seconds of play.  That set the stage for the 36 point rout.

Lexington committed just 1 personal foul in the contest and kept Jellico off the free throw line.  Mason Carver led his team with 16 points.  The Cats got 12 from Bradley Foulks and 9 from Ryan Green.  All 14 players saw playing time with 11 making the scoring column.
