Juliet, came in with a 5-4 record against competition from the Middle Tennessee Athletic Conference.Warren County (4-3) looked like it had picked a pushover on “Whiteout” night when the Pioneers opened up a big lead.Senior Thomas Locke, who earned his first start of the season, was the Pioneer who set off the toilet-paper throwing on Tuesday night.Locke buried a 3-pointer from the right corner for Warren County’s first points and the fans immediately showered the court with toilet paper. The Pioneers were called for a technical foul and the Heat hit one free throw.Locke was a big spark in his first start.
