Corbin stings Yellow Jackets, 73-45 on the road

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Sports Editor

MIDDLESBORO — The last time Corbin and Middlesboro squared off on the basketball court, the Redhounds were eliminated from postseason play via a 86-80 loss in the 13th Region Tournament.

The Redhounds got revenge in a big way Tuesday, knocking off Middlesboro, 73-45, on the road to improve to 11-5 on the season and 6-2 against 13th Region competition.

Corbin freshman Andrew Taylor led the way for the Redhounds, pouring in 15 points, while Trevor Browing added 14. Kevin Goins added 12 points, knocking down four 3-pointers, while Zach Maguet’s 10-point effort gave Corbin four players in double figures on the night.

Corbin jumped ahead early and never looked back, using a 24-12 first-quarter effort in the early going. After watching his team extend its lead, while adjusting to Middlesboro’s plan of attack, Corbin head coach Tony Pietrowski said he was pleased with the effort of his Redhounds.

“I thought our ball movement was really good tonight,” Pietrowki said. “They came in and keyed on Andrew (Taylor) and I thought we did a good job, number one — of moving the basketball and number two — of making in-game adjustments.

“I’ve been on our team about being able to do some of that stuff on the fly,” he added. “Teams are going to play you different at times, so I was really happy with the way the guys adjusted throughout.”

While the offense slowed slightly in the second quarter, Corbin was able to stretch its early 12-point lead to 20 (43-23) by the time halftime rolled around.

The two teams played to a draw in the third quarter, scoring 13 points each, as the Redhounds maintained a huge lead (56-36) heading in to the game’s final eight minutes.

Corbin used a 15-9 fourth-quarter showing to close out the win, cruising to a 73-45 victory.

Corbin’s offense took center stage on the outside looking in, but Pietrowski was especially pleased with his team’s defensive effort, limiting the damage against two of the better players in the 13th Region in Austin Poindexter (15 points) and Donnie Foister (five).

“I thought defensively we did a really good job throughout the game,” Pietrowski said. “They’ve got two kids in Foister and Poindexter who can really play the game and hurt you on any given night, but our kids took them out of a lot of things they tried to do.

“This (Middlesboro) is a scary team and we found that out firsthand last year, but I’m really proud of the way our team played on the road tonight,” he added. “I think we’re headed in the right direction and we’ll try and continue to do so.”
