Polsgrove his first win on the Bobcats sidelines. The Bobcats even
their record at 1-1 (1-0 CVAC) while Anderson falls to 0-3 (0-1
The Bobcats got out of the gates quickly in their home opener,
leading by ten, 12-2, just over four minutes into the game. The
Trojans would battle back through the first but could not get
closer than six, until finishing the final three minutes of the
half with a 10-2 run to close the gap to two, 25-23, as the teams
broke for halftime.
After a lackluster finish to the first, the Bobcats came out
hungry in the second, putting together an 18-0 run to extend their
lead to 20. The Bobcats would stretch their lead to 28 before the
Trojans would come to life with back to back buckets by Josh
Stanley, one of the three point variety, however the damage was
done and the Bobcats cruised to the 21 point victory.
Henry Williams led the Bobcats assault with 18 points, going two
for two from behind the three point arc and snagging four
rebounds. DJ Menifee had 12 points and five assists for the
Bobcats while Aaron Dugger chipped in with 11 and three
respectively. Mike Fox (pictured left), made his presence known
all over the court with five points, four rebounds, three steals
and a blocked shot.
Levi Ashworth led the Trojans with 11 points, seven coming from
the charity stripe. Stanley put in eight for the visitors while
John LeSueur and JR Howell dropped in five a piece.
The Bobcats will head to CVAC foe Pfeiffer for a tournament this
weekend, playing UNC-Pembroke November 24th at 5:00pm.
