SOUTH POINT — Third became first.

The problem third quarter became the best quarter for the South Point Pointers as they beat the Rock Hill Redmen 74-58 Wednesday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.

“That was our best third quarter of the year,” said South Point coach Chris Barnes. “We’ve been awful all year in the third quarter. I didn’t even talk at halftime. We just went out and did some drills and played.”

Payne Meadows scored 27 points including four 3-pointers to lead South Point (8-10, 3-5).

Brandon Barnes scored 15 points, Phillip Kratzenberg scored 10 points and Brandon Boggs had 10 points and 10 rebounds in the winning effort.

“Payne did a great job. He was able to do what he wants. And Kratzenberg came in and played well,” said coach Barnes.

Austin Collins scored 21 points to lead the Redmen (6-12, 1-7). Layden Delawder scored 15 points and Joey Stidham had 10 points.

Rock Hill took a 15-9 lead in the first quarter despite 8 points by Meadows.

But Meadows scored 8 more points in the second quarter as South Point rallied to take a 31-24 lead at the half.

The Pointers outscored Rock Hill 18-17 in the third quarter and it was 49-41.

Brandon Barnes then scored 9 points in the fourth quarter including a pair of key 3-pointers as the Pointers put the game away.
