Lebanon charges past North Mont.

Linden — Lebanon head coach Albert Hendrix said he wants his team to continue to build to where they are playing 30 minutes of good basketball every game.

The Tigers took a big step  toward that Friday night. Class 3A No. 10 Lebanon had no problems with host North Montgomery in a 63-36 win.

“I think tonight we played about 25-26 minutes of really good, solid basketball tonight,” Hendrix said. “We are playing as a team right now. The kids are doing a good job of stepping up and hitting some shots. But our defense is winning games for us. I hope we continue. We are six to eight minutes away from being where we want to be. Hopefully that comes middle of February into March.”

The Tigers forced 17 turnovers in the game and held North Montgomery to 33.3 percent shooting (12-of-36).

Hendrix said the Tigers did a good job of trapping the Chargers.

“I think it was our rotation,” Hendrix said when asked what made the defense so strong Friday. “We had people in the right spots in the right time. We have been trapping some early in the year and were giving up the passes we couldn’t. Now we are getting good traps and it is hard for the opponents to see past you when you get a good trap and take away the passing lanes.”

Lebanon jumped out to a 7-2 lead in the contest and led 13-6 after a quarter.

The lead stayed that way until midway in the second quarter when the Tigers went on a 9-2 run highlighted by a one-handed dunk by Cord Barricklow and capped by a 3-pointer by Tre’ Comage with 2:58 left in the half to make it 29-15.
