Tigers blast Southmont Mounties, 72-29

There wasn't much Southmont could do to slow down the Lebanon Tigers Friday night.

Lebanon used an 11-0 run to grab control of the game in the first quarter and coasted to a 72-29 victory against the Mounties.

"I think it was a game we needed," Lebanon head coach Albert Hendrix said. "We have been playing some tough basketball teams and had a tough stretch. We were able to sneak away with a win against North Montgomery (last Friday) and to come in here tonight and get a confidence win was big. Southmont played hard, but they are struggling a little bit and have had injuries. I felt like all night long our kids played hard, and if we can get that to happen, win or lose on the scoreboard, that is a positive."

The game was tied at six early, but the Tigers used that 11-0 run to go up 17-6 after two free throws by Kolton McKinnies and eventually led 21-11 after the first eight minutes.

Lebanon put the game away in the second quarter.

The Tigers out-scored the Mounties 25-5 in the second quarter, leading by 30 at the half.

Hendrix said the Tigers were able to pull away thanks to their defense. Southmont shot just 8 of 41 (19.5 percent) in the game, including 4 of 26 (15.4 percent) in the first half.
