Corbin snaps losing streak at Pineville

CORBIN — By Dan Connell / Staff Writer

PINEVILLE — Corbin's five-game losing skid came to an end on Friday night as the Redhounds departed Pineville with a 72-36 win.

The victory comes at a good time for the Redhounds as they get set for two key district battles with Williamsburg and Whitley County, respectively.

“We needed a win, plain and simple,” Corbin coach Tony Pietrowski said. “I thought our effort was really good on the defensive side of the ball and I thought that kind of charged us in to playing better offensively.

“I thought our movement was better and anytime you can do that, you get better looks and that's something we needed to see as a team and hopefully it will continue,” he added.  

The Redhounds utilized its full court pressure to create several points off turnovers in the opening quarter. Corbin's Andrew Taylor sparked the offense with 11 points and led the Redhounds in scoring by the end of the first period.

Pineville stayed close as Conner Ford's six points, along with a pair of three-point baskets by John Robbins and Tony Hoskins, kept the Mountain Lions within reach. Corbin maintained a 17-14 lead after the first quarter.

Defensive pressure created additional scoring opportunities for Corbin in the second quarter. The Corbin defense held Pineville to only five points in the period en route to a 31-19 halftime lead.

The lead was never in jeopardy as Pietrowski went to his bench and allowed all Redhound players to enter the contest by the final quarter. The 36-point win was Corbin's largest margin of victory of the year.

  • Shelton was a hero by any definition

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
