Lapel boys rout APA

LAPEL — Fundamentals and good defense will win most every game, and that is exactly what Lapel did in their 84-37 thrashing of Anderson Prep on the Bulldogs’ home court in the opening round of the boys Madison County basketball tournament.

Lapel committed just one turnover in the first quarter compared to the 10 by the Jets as the home team cruised to a 28-1 lead after the first eight minutes of play. Brady Cherry and reserve JonRoss Richardson led the Bulldogs with six points each in the period.

Anderson Prep did show a spark in the second quarter, committing just three turnovers, and reserve junior Noah Long connected on his first five shots, four from 3-point range, to score 14 of his team’s 20 points. The Jets outscored Lapel 20-18 in the second stanza.

The home squad ran away with the final two periods, outscoring the Jets 38-16 in the final 16 minutes of play and putting five players in double figures.

Lapel coach Jimmie Howell said that despite the lopsided score it was good for his kids to get a game under their belt after not playing for about two weeks.

“The kids have had to do a lot of practicing the last two weeks since we haven’t had a game, so it’s good for them to get out there and play a game," Howell said.

Half of the Bulldogs’ 84 points came from their bench as Richardson led with 12 points and Triston Carpenter had 10.

“A lot of kids got a lot of experience, especially the young kids that we need to gain more and more experience when we get into the sectional,” Howell said.

Anderson Prep coach Corey Scott showed some frustration during timeouts, and he said that his players need to understand the direction of the program in order to get a complete buy-in.
