Bobcat pressure too much for Gators

“We want to see if we can get the tempo in our favor and hit some shots.”

In the early going the Paxton pressure didn’t seem to rattle the Gators. Six minutes into the first quarter the Bobcats (3-1) held an 11-10 lead.

The next three mintues of play saw Paxton go on an 8-0 run. A Forrest Wibbing basket with 5:57 left in the second quarter capped the run and extended the Bobcat lead to 19-11.

Baker (1-3) got a 3-point play from Josh Hartzog to close the Paxton lead to 19-14 and that’s as close as the Gators got the rest of the way.

A free throw by Asa Fayne started a 10-0 Bobcat run that extended the Paxton lead to 29-14 as the Bobcats led by double digits the rest of the way.

The Bobcats stretched a 15-11 lead after the first period to 37-19 at the half.

And the pressure continued throughout the game.
