Morgan, the Broncos defeated Holloway 60-48 to improve to 5-3 in Middle Tennessee Athletic Conference play.In the girls game, Ashley Newby scored 11 and Marisa Hillis added 10 as the Lady Broncos won 45-26.The Broncos never resembled the team which lost to Van Buren County by 40 points against Holloway.Morgan never attempted a shot outside of five feet and coach Chris Sullens didn’t want him to. Morgan was able to use his brute strength to finish 11-of-15 in the paint and get within 11 points of 1,000 for his career.Morgan wasn’t the only Bronco doing work against Holloway though. Senior Brody Fernandez scored 20 points, 10 of which came from the free-throw line as Fernandez drew a number of fouls on forays into the paint.Sophomore Christian Barrett added 16 points, including hitting two 3-pointers, as the trio combined for 58 of the team’s 60 points.
