Corbin knocks off Colonels in district battle

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CORBIN — The Corbin Redhounds remained perfect in 50th District play Friday after knocking off Whitley County at home, 68-52.

Hunter Grubb led the way for the Redhounds with a 22-point effort, knocking down five three-pointers in the process.

Though the atmosphere made the gameseem like it was a close one throughout, Corbin had a 19-point lead in the second quarter and led by as much as 17 points in the fourth, but never seemed to put the game away. After the win, Redhound coach Tony Pietrowski said his team needed to do a better job of closing teams out when they have leads that large.

“We extended the lead a couple times and I thought we played really well in spurts tonight,” Pietrowski said. “We’ve got to do a better job because it seems like when we get into that 15 to 20 point range, we lose movement offensively and we probably don’t play quite as hard in the defensive end and that’s something I’ve been harping on with this team.

“It’s hard when you’re up 20 to keep that same mental approach that you used to get that lead,” he added. “So many times you’ve seen a team lose a big lead and momentum change, but I’m really happy with my team tonight overall.”

Corbin jumped out to a 10-4 lead early in the first quarter before closing the period with an 18-13 lead.

The Redhounds continued to shoot well in the second period, connecting on eight-of-twelve shot attempts in the quarter and 15-of-24 in the first half, to extend their lead to 37-24 at halftime.

The Redhounds were able to stretch the lead again in the third quarter, outscoring Whitley County 15-13 en route to a 52-37 lead as the period came to a close.

Whitley County was led by Michael Powers’ 21-point effort, while Luke Woods added 10.

The Redhounds used a 16-15 fourth-quarter effort to seal the 68-52 victory. The Colonels dropped to 5-12 on the regular season and 0-2 in 50th District play after the loss, while Corbin improved to 13-5 overall and 3-0 against 50th District foes.
