Outhustling the Tullahoma East Panthers on the road Monday night, the Warren County Middle School Pioneer 7-8 grade basketball team remains undefeated after the 43-24 win.Warren County (11-0) outscored East in every quarter, including the charity stripe as it shot 6-of-13 for 46 percent while the Panthers were a dismal 2-of-10 for 20 percent.Pioneer Kaden Jordan, always a big man on the boards for the Pioneers, created his own shot hitting a game-high 13 points. With a 19-11 lead going into the break, Warren County worked mainly from inside, increasing its offense in the second half with 14 points, countering the best offense of the night by East as it scored 9 points in the final quarter. Inside driver C.J. Anthony put 10 points toward the total tally in the first three quarters, while Aiden Grissom put a little icing on the cake by dialing long distance with a trey in the final minutes putting an exclamation mark on the win.The Panthers top threat was Jakobe Thomas, who hit double digits with 11 points, but it wasn’t enough as the second-highest scorer for East was Kyler Parker with 4 points, all in fourth-quarter action.“We have to come ready to play every game because our opponents are gonna bring their best every night,” said Warren County head coach Isaiah Phillips.Also hitting hoops for the Pioneers were Aiden Cummings with 6 points, C.J. Anthony 5, Tyler Taylor 4, Aiden Grissom 3, and Chase Simmerly hit a field goal for 2 points.The Pioneers stay on the road for their next two games, playing an afternoon contest in DeKalb County this Thursday at noon before making the trek to Coffee County on Thursday, Jan. 5 at 6 p.m.
