"They are about the young men and I give them all the credit."The Pioneers led most of the way behind the post play of Gaines, the team's most consistent offensive weapon. He couldn't be stopped down low and was a perfect 4-of-4 from the free-throw line.Point guard Isaac Golden added 10 points, while Krojhn Calbert scored eight.The Pioneers were up 31-22 at the half and iced the victory by holding Rhea County to six points in the third."We led the whole game and were up by 20 at one point," said coach Sullens.
