The Cowboys hit the road for a conference matchup against the Bobcats of Glenn High School. The Cowboys are coming off of a convincing road victory over previously unbeaten High Point Central in Conference play. The Bobcats are coming off of a tough road loss to conference foe Ragsdale. The Cowboys are looking to stay perfect in conference play as well as win a 12th in a row versus this conference opponent.
The Cowboys opened the game up with a made free throw, but the Bobcats responded with corner 3 pointer to give them a 3-1 lead at the 6:55 mark. Twelve seconds later the game was tied at 3, and thirty seconds later it was 5-3. The Bobcats battled back to make it 7-6 at the 4:41 mark. From there it was all Cowboys, as they ended the quarter on a 16-1 run to make it 23-7 at the end of the frame.
The second quarter was a little more even, but the Cowboys pressure defense forced several turnovers. The Cowboys were able to run together some solid possessions and go into the halftime break up 52-26.
The Bobcats wouldn’t go down without a fight. Glenn utilized some sloppy Southwest possession to go on a 7-0 spurt to get it to 57-35 at the 6:00 mark. Southwest regained some traction and got the margin over 30 at 72-37 with 2:50 to go. The Bobcats once again refused to quit an ad even went on a 6-0 spurt before the quarter closed. Southwest got an excellent inbounds set from half court for a layup at the buzzer to end the drought and made the score 78-46.
The final frame was sloppy and disjointed. The Bobcats continued to fight and claw back, and then the Cowboys would push and control the lead back out. In the end it was too much Southwest and the Cowboys cruised to a 101-73 road conference win.
The Bobcats were led by Rachard Daniels with a game high 30 points. Southwest was led by Brandon Lamberth with (22, 6 Rebs, 3 Asts, 3 Stls), Keyshaun Langley with (20, 3 Asts, 3 Stls), and Christian Martin with (16, 8 Rebs, Ast). Southwest improves to 16-2 overall and 5-0 in the Piedmont Triad 4A.
