Saturday, February 16, 2002

McDERMOTT – Workman went to work. Scoring all his points the second half, Adam Workman provided a needed spark as the South Point Pointers beat the Northwest Mohawks 69-59 Tuesday in a non-league game.

"Workman made a big difference for us," Pointers coach Mark Lafon said. "And Shane had another big game that kept us alive."

The Pointers needed some life. After taking a 19-13 first quarter lead, they watched as the Mohawks rallied to take a 36-27 halftime lead.

But Holsinger – who had 16 points the second half – scored eight points the third quarter and Workman drained a pair of three-pointers as South Point tied the game at 49-49.

"We had a seven-point lead and (Northwest) cut it to one. But after a time-out , we forced some turnovers and got up seven without them taking a shot," Lafon said.

Holsinger had 25 points to lead South Point (12-7). Justin Eaches scored 14, Workman 12, and Bryan Maggard grabbed 10 rebounds.

The Pointers play at Rock Hill Friday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.

Mark Cotton had 17 points to lead Northwest. Josh Keeney and Dale Altman scored 12 each.
