Redhounds recover from pair of weekend losses to beat Bell Co.

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

NORTH LAUREL — Despite trailing by five points at halftime, the Corbin Redhounds came away with a 56-50 win over 13th Region foe Bell County Thursday in the opening round of the Legacy Nissan Shootout at North Laurel High School.

Hunter Grubb and Robbie Igo each scored 12 points in the win to lead the way for the Redhounds. Eight of Grubb’s 12 came in the first half, while all 12 of Igo’s came in the second half, including four of four from the free throw line.

After the win, Corbin coach Tony Pietrowski said he was pleased with the way his team responded after a pair of losses last weekend.

“We had a rough weekend and I don’t think we played as well as we could have in those two games,” Pietrowski said. “I think we still had a little bit of that spill over to start this game, but we did enough down the stretch.

“I didn’t think it was a pretty game for about three quarters and then I thought we started to execute a little bit better,” he added. “We started doing things better on the defensive side of the ball and we did enough to win and in tournaments, that’s really what it’s all about.”

Corbin took a 9-4 lead to start things out, but fell behind 15-13 as the first quarter came to a close.

A 9-4 run to start the second quarter put the Redhounds on top, but Bell County closed the half with a 6-0 spurt of their own to grab a 32-27 lead at halftime.

Corbin outscored the Bobcats 14-10 in the third quarter, but still trailed 42-41 with eight minutes to play in the game. The Redhounds nearly doubled Bell County up in the fourth quarter, outscoring them 15-8 in the period to grab the 56-50 victory and move on to play Pineville today in the second round of the Legacy Nissan Shootoutat 5:30 p.m. at North Laurel High School. Pietrowski said he expects a good matchup against the Mountain Lions.

“It’s going to be a tough one for us,” he said. “They played without their point guard the first seven games of the season, he’s only played two games with them and he obviously makes them better.

"That group of kids is battle-tested and they’ve been together for a while,” he added. “They know what they’re going to do and they know how they’re going to do it, so we’ll see how we stack up. I think they are one of the upper echelon teams in the 13th Region.”
