Morrison sets tone early
Morrison Eagle Ryland Holder, center, makes the quick pass on a drive Thursday as Dibrells Jordan Sandlin, left, and Aaron Ashburn, right, try to defend.
By the time Dibrell could make any adjustments, Morrison was off to a 24-8 halftime lead in the second round of the 7-8 grade basketball tournament Thursday night at Warren County High School.Despite a Dibrell rally in the third quarter, where the Wildcats scored 15 points, Morrison’s Eagles dominated the offense the entire way, handily winning the third quarter as well with 18 points and a tournament win, 47-23.“We set the tone early with our defense,” said Morrison coach Kyle Cannon. “We worked extremely hard and played smart basketball. The boys followed the game plan perfectly.”In a case of the usual suspects, Morrison’s power duo of Kason and Ryland Holder hit for 19 and 15 points, respectively, in the contest using the fast break and turnovers for many of their points.The Wildcats struggled at the charity stripe as well, converting 9-of-29 for 31 percent.
