Stopped by Stone, ready for regionals
Pioneers push Panthers
WCHS Pioneer KRojhn Calbert drives through the paint Tuesday at the Dalt. Calbert had back-to-back games in the district tournament where he scored 22 points and was honored on the all-tournament team for his performance.
With just under a minute left to play, down by 3 points, Warren County post K’Rojhn Calbert made the defensive play of the night by stealing a Stone Memorial pass and turning it into 2 points with a fast-break layup bringing the Pioneers to within 1 point of Stone Memorial, 47-46.Starting an aggressive full-court press in hopes of forcing another turnover after the change of possession sent Panther Brett Newcome to the foul line for two. Newcome hit both widening the gap to a 3-point game, 49-46.Now with only 28 seconds left in regulation, the Pioneers had the ball but the Stone defense played like a wall and Warren County had trouble penetrating. With 3 seconds on the clock, Pioneer Isaiah Grayson made a last-ditch effort drive to the basket hoping to make the points and draw a foul.Neither happened and Stone won, 49-46, Tuesday night at WCHS.“Once again I am pleased with way our guys competed,” said Warren County coach Chris Sullens.
