In what was easily their best game of the season, the Edgewood Freshmen posted an impressive 53 – 40 victory over Owen Valley in the final of an abbreviated WIC tournament. Better team defense and better movement on offense were the keys to avenging a loss to the same OV team just 5 days earlier.
Owen Valley jumped out to an early lead, but Xzander Hammonds’ half-court shot at the 1st quarter buzzer brought the Mustangs to within 2. From there, Edgewood gradually took control by outscoring the Patriots by 5 points in each of the last 3 quarters.
Hammonds led the Mustangs with 25 points, while Joe West scored 11 and Nick McCullough had 9 points and 6 rebounds. In addition, Zach Fulk had 6 points, and Anthony Gough had 1, as did Kannon Collier, who also grabbed 5 rebounds.
