Wildcats drop 68-52 decision on the road to Monticello

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

MONTICELLO — Early foul trouble led to Lynn Camp’s demise against Monticello Saturday.

The Wildcats (15-14) had four starters have three fouls apiece during the first quarter and they could never recover, as the Trojans handed Lynn Camp a 68-52 loss.

Despite seeing 80 percent of its starting five on the bench due to foul trouble in the first quarter, Clyde Dixon’s squad managed to build a 14-10 edge.

But the second quarter was when Monticello took over by using a 20-9 run to take a 30-23 edge at halftime.

The game remained close going into the fourth quarter (Trojans led 42-35 at the end of the third), but Monticello got hot from the floor and outscored Lynn Camp, 26-17, to pick up the 16-point victory.

“After a hard comeback win last night, we were tired, but really didn’t have a chance to compete, much less win,” Dixon said. “We had four starters with three fouls each in the first quarter and five total fouling out of the game.

“Monticello shot 42 free throws,” he added. “Situations like this happen sometimes. We have to learn from it and move on.”

One bright spot in the game was senior Zach Smith’s 20-point, 17-rebound effort.

“Zach Smith had another big night with 20 points and 17 rebounds when officials only allowed him to play about half of the game,” Dixon said.
