CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

WILLIAMSBURG — Patrick Robinson’s Williamsburg Yellow Jackets stopped a three-game skid by knocking down nine three-pointers while hitting 21-of-30 shot attempts from the charity stripe during their 84-64 win over Garrard County.

Guards Skylar Griffith and Corey Shelton showed up in a big way by combining to score 57 points during the 20-point win. Griffith led all scorers with 30 points while hitting five three-pointers and finishing with a seven-of-nine effort from the free-throw line.

Shelton scored 27 points and finished the game with four three-pointers while teammate Dalton Sizemore added a 16-point effort.

“It was a total team effort tonight,” Robinson said. “I thought everyone contributed a great deal. We shot the ball well, but I was more pleased with the intensity and the effort that our team showed. The guys responded to the coaching staff really challenging them and demanding more effort and it showed tonight. I’m really proud of our guys.”

The Yellow Jackets (2-3) got off to a fast start in the first quarter, thanks to the shooting of Griffith. He scored 13 points while hitting three three-pointers to give his team a 22-16 edge at the end of the period.

Shelton added seven points in the second quarter as Williamsburg’s lead grew to a commanding 42-25 edge.

The Yellow Jackets sealed the deal in the second half by coming through at the free-throw line, connecting on 15-of-19 during the final 16 minutes of play.

  • Shelton was a hero by any definition

    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.
