CRESTVIEW — Crestview High School's boys basketball team jumped to a quick 13-0 lead over Milton on Friday and never looked back.

When the final horn sounded, the Bulldogs walked off the court with a 67-52 win over the Panthers.

Crestview (12-2) could do nothing wrong in an impressive opening run.

Josh Hinton scored the game's first basket with just 10 seconds off the clock, giving the Bulldogs a lead they wouldn't relinquish the rest of the game.

A pair of Ronnie Baylark 3-point baskets pushed the lead to 8-0. Denzel Ware finished off the run, scoring five points on a basket and a 3-point play with 3:30 left in the quarter.

 The game seemed to be out of reach when Andre Flakes scored the first Panther basket of the game with 2:59 left in the first quarter.

Crestview led 23-6 at the end of the first quarter as Baylark had 10 of his game-high 22 points and Ware had nine of his 15 points.
