Redhounds cruise to 69-55 victory over Lynn Camp

CORBIN — By Dan Connell / Staff Writer

CORBIN — Head coach Tony Pietrowski has consistently emphasized the fact that his Redhound squad needs to improve in many areas as the season progresses. Perhaps Corbin's latest win streak of three consecutive games, along with six wins out of the last seven, may have given Pietrowski the improvement he has searched for in his club.

The Redhounds took on 13th Region opponent Lynn Camp at Gilliam Gym on Monday night and handed Lynn Camp a 69-55 loss. The win moves Corbin to the top part of the 13th Region standings with a 10-5 record overall.

"I thought our effort was really good," Tony Pietrowski said. "That's something I've been harping on with the kids. Our execution is headed in the right direction and the team is hungry. I do think they have a chance to achieve things that a lot of people don't necessarily think they feel like they can do. If we can iron out a few wrinkles and get better in certain areas of our offense and defense, I feel like we can compete for another district and region title."

The Redhounds scored on their first four possessions of the game and jumped out to an early lead, but the Wildcats weren't showing signs of backing down.

Lynn Camp went to work on the boards and went to Austin Allen underneath and Justin Hammonds from three-point territory to give the Wildcats a slim lead early.

The Redhounds fought back as six players found the scoring column, led by Kevin Goins, Andrew Taylor and Trevor Browning. Corbin found themselves with a 16-12 lead at the end of the first quarter and both teams continued to battled to gain momentum.

Andrew Taylor's three-point basket gave Corbin a five-point 23-18 advantage at the 3:50 mark in the second quarter, but it was the last-minute surge that gave Corbin the momentum heading into the locker room. Two consecutive three-point baskets by Goins and a Trevor Browning bucket closed the half, giving Corbin a 31-22 lead which Lynn Camp struggled to recover from throughout most of the second half.

The Redhound defense created several turnovers which resulted in Corbin baskets to begin the third quarter. The Wildcat execution could generate past the scrappy and quick Corbin defense who quickly pushed the lead out to 44-22 with just under five minutes remaining.

Trevor Browning and Kevin Goins continued to pace the Corbin offense in the third quarter by scoring from the post and from the outside. The surge gave Corbin a 53-36 lead at the end of the quarter.

As Lynn Camp's back was against the wall, the Wildcats managed to cut the lead to single digits.

Skylar McFarland and Austin Allen led the Wildcats back to within striking distance, but Corbin went to its full-court press and once again forced the Wildcat offense into turnovers.

Andrew Taylor's basket at the 2:21 mark wiped away doubts of a late Wildcat rally. The basket gave the Redhounds a 61-49 lead and would secure the victory heading down the stretch.

Despite the loss, Lynn Camp coach Eric Swords was positive and praised his team for its effort. The Wildcats would finish the evening with three players in double figures.

"I thought we played really well defensively, especially there in the first half," Swords said. "I should have switched defenses, but when I did the guys responded and we made a run. We're making major improvements. We still need to get a little better offensively. We struggled to score at times, but when we share the ball we're a lot better offensively and a lot of that's off our defense and our rebounding, which we've been doing alot better job of."

Corbin was led in scoring by Kevin Goins and Trevor Browning who each had 19 points on the night. Lynn Camp was led by Austin Allen with 19 for the Wildcats.
