HODGENVILLE — The Southwestern Warriors snapped a two-game losing slide on Friday afternoon, moving to 6-7 on the season, with a 60-37 win over Louisville Collegiate on the second day of The Magnolia Bank Holiday Classic at Larue County High School.
Chris Baker’s club blew open a close game beginning in the first half of play, by outscoring the Titans by a 35-14 margin over the second and third quarters to take complete control of the contest.
After only leading the Titans by a score of 12-9 after the first period, the Warriors extended that margin out to 16 points by the intermission at 30-14, and led Louisville Collegiate by a whopping 47-23 score at the end of the third stanza.
The Warriors got contributions from just about everybody, as Baker and crew had 10 players place their names in the scoring column in the win.
Southwestern was led by Cole Dysinger’s 15 points, while Brayden Sims and Hunter Coffey each added 10 points for the Warriors, who rebounded from a 63-56 loss to Bullitt Central the night before in the opening round of the tournament.
The Warriors will conclude play in the tournament tomorrow night taking on the host — Larue County — with tip off slated for 6:30 p.m.
