Lebanon stays unbeaten after top-10 showdown

Lebanon — Lebanon head coach Albert Hendrix knew that Friday night’s game against the Class 3A No. 10 Danville Warriors would be the first real test for his team this season.

He had to have liked what he saw. The Class 3A No. 8 Tigers controlled the glass and forced Danville into foul trouble, leading them to a 65-56 victory.

“It was a big win for us,” Hendrix said. “I think Danville is the best team we played so far and certainly (head coach) Brian Barber does a great job. I felt like our kids laid it on the line tonight. We knew we were going to turn it over tonight, and that there pressure would hurt us. But our kids hung in there and fought because Danville’s kids just keep coming after you. It has always been that way and I am really happy with the effort we got from our kids tonight.”

Barber said that the Tigers’ physicality took Danville out of some of the things they wanted to do.

“Lebanon has a very good team, they are very physical,” Barber said. “There defensive pressure took us out of some things we wanted to do on offense, you have to give them credit for that. It was just a typical Lebanon/Danville game — very physical. Lebanon has a good team and you have to give them credit.”

The game was back-and-forth early but Lebanon pulled out to an 18-9 lead early in the second quarter.

Lebanon held the lead for the remainder of the half, but Danville held the Tigers to just two points in the final 3:18 and used an 8-2 run to get within one at 28-27 at the break.
