HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Tony Bennett left his heart in San Francisco. The South Point Pointers left their offense in the locker room.
Trailing just 31-27 at the half, the Pointers’ offense went cold in the second half in a 70-46 loss to the Spring Valley Timberwolves on Friday.
“We played pretty good in the first half. We gave us six points with less and a minute to go,” said Pointers’ coach Travis Wise.
“We held Meredith scoreless in the second half and they were in foul trouble but we could not buy a basket in the second half.”
Brody Blackwell had 15 points on five 3-pointers and Austin Webb scored 11 for the Pointers (1-3).
Brock Booth and Carson Malashevich had 14 points each and C.J. Meredith 10 for the T-Wolves (1-2).
Webb scored nine points and Blackwell hit a pair of 3-pointers as the Pointers went up 21-15 in the first quarter.
But the Pointers got only six points in the second quarter while Booth and Meredith had five points each for the T-Wolves who took the lead.
The lead was 45-34 after three quarters and then the T-Wolves outscored the Pointers 25-12 in the fourth quarter.
“Hopefully, we regroup and go compete against Lucasville Valley,” said Wise.
The Pointers play Valley at Portsmouth next Friday.
