Payback

Corbin Cruises past North Laurel with 17-point victory

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CORBIN — What looked like another barn-burner at the end of the first quarter turned into a rout as the Corbin Redhounds cruised to a 79-62 win over defending 13th Region Champion North Laurel.

Kaleb Maguet led the way for the Redhounds with 23 points, while knocking down five three-pointers and Hunter Grubb added 20, connecting on four threes of his own.

Corbin led 15-12 after the first eight minutes of the contest, but that was as close as the Jaguars would get for the remainder of the game.

After the win, Corbin coach Tony Pietrowski said he was pleased with his team’s effort and gave credit to where credit was due.

“I’m really happy with the effort and the way we played,” Pietrowski said. “I felt like we came in with a good game plan and we executed it quite well.

“We’ve talked a thousand times before about when our ball movement is like that, we have a lot of weapons,” he added. “I thought we handled all the things they threw at us quite well, from top to bottom I though we executed well and it was a good team win.”

On the other side of things, North Laurel coach Brad Sizemore said he felt like his team played hard, but just didn’t do enough to stop the shooters Corbin has on the floor.

“They played really well and shot the ball extremely well and we didn’t, so this was a tough loss,” Sizemore said. “They’re hard to key up on them and you go with junk defense because they can spread it out.

“We tried to go man on them and we hung with them for a little while,” he added. “It comes down to we didn’t take care of the ball and we didn’t finish the plays we needed to finish, so we just have to move on to the next one.”

Corbin extended the lead to 37-29 at halftime and used an 18-14 third-quarter effort to push the gap to 55-43 with eight minutes to play in the contest.

The Redhounds outscored North Laurel 24-19 in the fourth quarter to seal the 79-62 win.

The lone bright spot for North Laurel was Marcus Carson’s 27-point effort, nine of which came in the fourth quarter.

With the win, Corbin improved to 14-5 on the season, while North Laurel fell to 10-10.

The Redhounds will be back in action Friday when they travel to Knox Central, while the Jaguars will host Clay County Friday as well.
