Tony Pietrowski's squad dropped their second game in a row after seeing the Warriors outscore the Redhounds, 30-19, during the fourth quarter while picking up a 77-76 win.

The Redhounds were leading 76-75 with less than 10 seconds remaining, but missed both shots as C.A.K.'s Oteriah Lee raced down court and layed the ball in at the buzzer, giving his team a one-point win.

Corbin led by as many as 16 points, but an 11-of-23 effort at the free-throw line, including going 7-of-14 during the fourth quarter did the Redhounds in.

“We played really well for a quarter,” Pietrowski said. “But we reverted to the same things that have hurt us all year - lack of execution, turnovers, missed foul shots and missed block outs.

“We are whipped pups right now,” he added. “It will be interesting to see how we respond. The next couple of weeks are really tough games for us.”

Corbin shot nine-of-14 from the floor in the first quarter and built a commanding 20-5 lead, and held a 36-26 edge at halftime after hitting on 15-of-27 shot attempts.

The Redhounds still held a 10-point lead (57-47) going into the fourth quarter after hitting nine-of-14 shot attempts in the third period, but that's when the Warriors began to chip away.

Corbin led 61-52 with 5:00 remaining before seeing C.A.K. go on a 25-15 run to pull out the win.

Kevin Goins led the Redhounds with 25 points while Lee led the Warriors with 24 points. C.A.K. finished the game connecting on 24-of-30 free throws attempts.

Jason McDaniel's Corbin Lady Redhounds improved to 15-5 on the season, as they ran past visiting Christian Academy of Knoxville, 81-78.

The game was close throughout, but Corbin used a 10-2 run midway through the third quarter to build a big enough lead to hold on for the win.

The Lady Redhounds were led in scoring by Natalie Gallagher, who did most of her damage in the second half. Gallagher scored 14 of her team-best 18 points during the game's final 16 minutes, including an eight point effort in the fourth quarter.

Sara Ashley added 16 points in the win for Corbin while Kayla Wilson scored 14 points and Miranda Wilson added 13 points.

McDaniel's squad led 21-19 after first quarter action, but railed 43-42 at halftime despite seeing Miranda Wilson knock down two of her team-high three-pointers during the game.

The Lady Redhounds began to take control of the game in the third quarter by knocking down seven straight shots at one point. Corbin finished with an eight-of-12 shooting effort during the quarter, as Gallagher led the way with eight points.

The Lady Warriors raced out to a 71-67 advantage with 4:32 remaining in regulation after opening the fourth quarter with a 14-6 run, but the Lady Redhounds turned up the defensive pressure and forced five turnovers during the final eight minutes of play.

A layup by Gallagher with 3:53 remaining gave her team a one-point lead (72-71) it wouldn't relinquish, as a three-pointer by Brooklyn Ashurst with less than three minutes left gave her team a comfortable 76-71 edge. Corbin wrapped up the win by knocking down its free throw attempts during the game's final two minutes.
