LOG MOUNTAIN — The Barbourville Tigers are peaking at the right time, picking up their fourth straight win Tuesday, knocking off Bell County, 64-58.

Devon Mills led the way for Barbourville, pouring in 30 points to lead the Tigers to their 17th win of the season, improving to 17-10 overall and 10-6 against 13th region opponents. Jason Mills added 16 points for the Tigers, while Zack Strong scored seven.

After the win, Barbourville head coach Dinky Phipps said he was pleased with his team’s effort and called it a “good win” for his squad.

“This was a good win for the kids because they played real hard,” Phipps said. “Hopefully this will give us some momentum heading into these final few games and postseason play.”

Barbourville took a 16-8 lead at the end of the first quarter, but the Bobcats trimmed the gap with a 22-19 effort to make the score 35-30 at the break.

The pace slowed in the third quarter, but the Tigers extended the lead to 49-40 with eight minutes to play in the game.

Bell County tried to close the gap in the final quarter, outscoring the Tigers 18-15 in the final eight minutes of play, but the deficit proved too large to overcome as Barbourville held on for the six-point win.

As the regular season winds down, Phipps said he has only one goal in mind for the Tigers in the final two games.

“We just want to stay healthy,” Phipps said.
