EPC crushes BIC
Another team effort, complete with Rashad "Ky" Madden, and another step closer to tournament time as the EPC Warriors handily defeated the BIC Mustangs, 74-39, Friday night in Monette.
"We played really well defensively," said EPC coach Josh Hill. "They hustled and I am proud of them for that.
We just have to keep doing what we do and get better defensively because our offense will take care of itself. As long as we keep defending and rebounding, we will be all right."
Jammar Sturdivant, Madden and A.J. Turner each led the Warriors with 10 points. Darius Barnes, Chaivey Freeman and Martin Powell each had nine points. Byron Ford had eight points, Jori Ford five, and Brady Jones and Jaron Snyder each had two points.
This was one of Madden's first games back from sitting out to rest his ailing foot. Hill said Madden looked to be getting back to form on the court.
"Ky looked back to his old self tonight with some speed and jumping," Hill said. "We need him back for a few weeks before the end of the year to get some continuity."
The Warriors are now 20-3.
The Junior Warriors won a hard-fought ball game with a 36-29 victory over BIC.
Malik Monk led EPC's Junior Warriors with 18 points. Paul Pilgrim had eight points and Chris Bly had six.
"You could tell we had been out of school all day," Hill said. "We were really immature. Didn't play well at all on offense. But they played hard and did well defensively. We were lucky enough to get that win."
The Junior Warriors are 14-2.
