The boys' opening round game of the 20th District tournament Wednesday night featured little drama as the No. 1-seeded Indians coasted to an easy win over Campbellsville, 89-43. The heavily favored Adair County squad jumped out to a commanding 51-29 lead through one half of play and went through most of the fourth quarter with a running clock.
"Last night was the big for us in making sure we get to region," says head coach Deron Breeze. "Win or lose Saturday [in the district title game] - obviously we want to win - but we're going to region either way."
Adair County controlled the game from the opening tip, employing a full court press to turn Campbellsville over and get easy buckets in transition. Senior Cameron Lasley was the primary beneficiary of the aggressive defense, racking up five steals and a team-high 24 points. Still, Breeze sees plenty of room for improvement.
"I thought in the first half we took some bad shots and dribbled a little too much," Breeze says. "We didn't move the ball like we can. Then in the second half we did a little better."
In addition to Lasley's big night, three other Indians cracked double figures: Corey Melton and Kel Stotts each had 14, and Chance Melton added 11. Stotts also grabbed 11 rebounds. Sophomore guard Layndon Carter provided a spark with nine points off the bench in 10 minutes of action, while senior Dylan Feese chipped in seven points, eight boards, and a team-high four assists. Anthony Payne scored six, Jordan Lasley two, and Blane Brazier two to round out the Indians' scoring. Malachi Corley was the only Campbellsville player to reach double figures, scoring 19 first half points before being shut out in the second half.
