The Hundred Hornets' Rusty Morris scored 16 points and grabbed nine rebounds against Clay-Battelle Jan 24 in Blacksville, but it wasn't quite enough, as the Cee-Bees won, 71-36.
The Cee-Bees took a 24-6 lead after one period of play and more than doubled that at intermission, 51-13. The Hornets played their hosts tough the rest of the way, but still fell a little short.
Kirk Shriver and Nick Phillips teamed for 15 points and 10 rebounds, while Courtland Armstrong, Josh King and Thomas Preston each added positive points in the loss.
"We played a lot better against a very good team, but still took some bad shots," said Hornet Head Coach Gregory Hostetler. "We are getting focused on the up-coming H.I.T. Tournament."
In what Hornet Assistant Coach Brian Bartlett said was the junior varsity's best performance to date, Hundred fell to Clay-Battelle, 52-38. "I was proud of the way the boys played tonight," said Bartlett.
After trailing 13-2 after one, the Hornets played right with the Cee-Bees bucket-for-bucket the rest of the way.
Preston had his best outing of the season, scoring 14 points, hauling in seven rebounds, making two steals and dishing off three assists to pace the Hornet jayvees.
Mhar Olayan netted a season-high nine markers and grabbed six boards, while Levi Simpson tallied six points. Courtland, King and Hunter Goddard, finished off the Hornets' scoring with positive points.
