Barbourville knocks off Pineville at home, 51-48

CORBIN — By John Stepp For The Times-Tribune

BARBOURVILLE — Despite losing six seniors off last year's 23-win team, the Barbourville Tigers picked up where they left off, capturing their first district win of the season with a 51-48 win over the Pineville Mountain Lions.

“Coming into the season we knew it would be a rough year because we lost six seniors to graduation, and only returned one player with a lot of game experience,” said Barbourville Coach Dinky Phipps. “But this team has done everything I've asked them to do. They won't quit”

The Tigers controlled the game in the first half, jumping out to a 24-18 lead at halftime. But Pineville came out on fire in the third quarter, scoring the first eight points of the second half, taking a two point lead. The teams exchanged baskets for the remainder of third period, and headed into the fourth quarter all tied up a 35-35.

Barbourville opened the final quarter with a three-point basket by senior forward Zach Strong followed by a put back from senior guard Devon Mills, to give the Tigers a 40-35 lead. The Mountain Lions continued to claw back throughout the quarter, but could never take back the lead, falling 51-48.

The Tigers were led in the scoring column by Mills who finished with a game-high 21 points, followed by Strong with 12 points.
