Colonels dominate Lynn Camp, 79-41

CORBIN — By Dan Connell / Staff Writer

WILLIAMSBURG — A week after defeating Barbourville on the road, the Whitley County Colonels returned to Lawson Gymnasium and had no trouble with the Lynn Camp Wildcats.

It was the last home game of 2013 for the Colonels, who handed Lynn Camp its fifth loss of the season by a final score of 79-41.

“I thought our kids came out and played hard,” Whitley County coach Jerry Overbey said. “We got some easy buckets and defensively we were all over the floor. I thought we showed great composure.”

The Colonels jumped out to the early lead, but Lynn Camp stayed within striking distance.

Whitley County led 14-10 at the end of the first quarter. Overbey's squad ignited on a 27-point scoring effort in the second period that sparked big plays on both ends of the court.

Whitley County's rebounding was effective throughout the contest and defensive pressure created baskets off turnovers with the Colonel offense scoring from all sections of the court.

James Sasko cashed in for one of the biggest nights of his career with 27 points as the senior led the Colonels, but it was the contribution of several other Colonels that began to weigh heavily on the Wildcats.

Casey Crisologo and Luke Woods found the range from three-point territory during the first half of play. Each finished the night in double figures.    

Lynn Camp's Skylar McFarland paced the Lynn Camp offense in the first half as he finished eight points to close out the half, but Whitley County held a 41-22 lead at halftime and the lead continued to grow in the third period.

Again, the Colonels looked to Sasko who continued his big scoring night in the third period. Whitley County utilized its size advantage underneath the basket with rebounding and blocked shots in the third and fourth quarters.

The Wildcats were held to just four points in the final period. Crisologo finished with 15 points and Woods added 12. McFarland led Lynn Camp with 12 points. Nine Colonels reached the scoring column by evening's end. The win sends the Colonels on a two-game winning streak heading into two holiday basketball tournaments during the Christmas break.

“I thought they handled our press real well,” Lynn camp coach Eric Swords said. “They got a couple of easy buckets in transition and got some open threes. We're looking to get better offensively and hopefully we can come around to that.”

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
