Last week, the Buckhorn Wildcats participated in the Pine Mountain Classic. Their first opponent would be the McCreary County Raiders.
Buckhorn was unable to shake McCreary Central in the first period, and the frame ended with a 12-all tie. However, the Wildcats would assert themselves in the second period, and went into the locker room with the 37-20 advantage.
The two teams once again played even in the third period, giving Buckhorn a 61-43 lead going into the final frame. The Raiders outscored the Wildcats in the final eight minutes, but could do nothing to stop Buckhorn from claiming the 85-74 win.
Buckhorn (85) Austin Bennett 44 (6 rebounds), Donovan Engle 19 (4 rebounds), Austin Morris 10 (4 rebounds and 3 assists), Daniel Hurley 7 (5 rebounds), Shannon Blank 2 (7 rebounds and 5 assists), Jarred Griffith 2 and Danny Abner 1 (3 rebounds).
