The Corbin Redhounds jumped out to a 22-7 lead in the first quarter and never looked bad, smashing the Lynn Camp Wildcats 67-30 at Gilliam Gymnasium on Thursday.
Corbin bounced back from a hard-fought loss against Clay County just two nights earlier when they lost 72-66.
"We wanted to see if we were going to go out and have a hangover after the Clay County game, which was an emotional hard-fought game. Our kids laid a lot on the line in that game," said Corbin coach Tony Pietrowski. "Sometimes when you come up short in those games, it's hard for kids to come out and refocus, but I thought our kids did a good job of regrouping and coming out ready to play."
It was Kaleb Maguet who led the way for the Redhounds, scoring 11 of his game-high 16 points in the first quarter, helping his team get off to a hot start. Zach Farley and Kevin Goins finished with 10 and nine points, respectively, while 11 different Redhounds found the scoring column.
"We really have to maintain that balance. I really feel like we have five kids, who on any given night can lead us in scoring," Pietrowski said. "We have kids who have the ability to shoot the ball and it really is about that extra pass. We have kids who are hungry to get better."
After building a 41-17 halftime lead, Corbin wasted no time putting the final nails in the coffin, outscoring the Wildcats 19-3 in the third quarter. With subs in the game, Corbin had four different players to score in the final period, claiming a 67-30 victory.
The Redhounds return to action tonight, taking on Jellico, Tenn., serving as Corbin's third game in four days.

THE WAY IT IS: Football is in the air in the Tri-County
These cool summer days are reminding me of the cool football Friday nights of September and October, and with that said, these cooler temperatures have me in the mood of writing about things to come for our local football teams in the Tri-County.
It’s never too early to talk about what games will be the big ones for the Tri-County high school football fans to watch this upcoming season. I’ve tried to narrow my list down to 10 games, but honestly, it really wasn’t easy to do — but I did manage to do it.
Let’s just say things should be very entertaining, and interesting, for you the fan this season.

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.
