Somewhere between the end of the second quarter and the start of the third, the Warren County High School boys basketball team is forgetting how to play.For the second straight game, a big run by a Pioneer opponent in the third quarter was enough to change the course of the game. On Friday night, Cumberland County outscored the Pioneers 16-1 in the third to coast to a 68-54 victory.Warren County (12-11) suffered a similar fate three nights earlier in DeKalb County. After playing the Tigers to a draw in the first half, the Pioneers were outscored 24-2 in the third quarter and ended up losing by 28 points.The Pioneers went to halftime in Cumberland County trailing 26-23, but the deficit was 18 by the time Warren County relocated its offense in the fourth quarter.Even 30 points in the final eight minutes weren’t enough as the Pioneers’ third-quarter struggles were too much to overcome.Warren County was hoping to end a three-game losing streak on Friday when it took the court in Crossville.
