Tigers win third straight by topping Westfield

The Lebanon Tigers boys basketball team got above .500 for the first time this season Saturday night.

The Tigers topped Westfield 60-44 to improve to 7-6 on the season.

"I thought our kids really played hard defensively, especially in the first half," Lebanon head coach Albert Hendrix said. "Jordan Davis and Trevor Lakes really played well and got us going. Jordan hit a couple of 3s in the first quarter that got us out to a nice lead."

The Tigers held the Shamrocks to 15 points in the first half while building a big lead.

Westfield came back a little bit in the second half, but never threatened in the game. Hendrix said Tigers took their foot of the gas in the second half.

"They made some adjustments defensively against us in the second half and we took some bad shots," Hendrix said. "They cut into the lead a little, but that was a situation we really haven't been in much. We hadn't had a lead like that except against Southmont on Friday. We fell asleep a little bit, but we did enough to get the win."

Hendrix had praise for the way a couple of the Tigers played, especially on the defensive end.
