Hoboes bombard Jaguars

Published: Saturday, November 23, 2013 at 02:09 AM.

The long shots continued to fall for the Hoboes, but they showed they could take the ball inside as well.

With 6:27 left in the half Laurel Hill point guard Josh Hartzog turned in the play of the game when he banked an assist off the backboard into the waiting hands of center Lane Strickland. Strickland finished the play with an emphatic slam dunk.

Later in the quarter Max Smith showed his ability to play above the rim. Smith stole a Jaguar pass and took the ball the length of the floor for a dunk of his own.

With the Hoboes leading 46-13 to start the second half the only question remaining was how long it would take for them to score the two points needed to start the running clock.

The answer came when Cooper hit two free throws 18 seconds into the third quarter.

Not even the running clock to keep the Hoboes from running up and down the floor for easy scores Laurel Hill scored 19 points in the third quarter and to push the lead to 45 points.

Zessin pulled most of his first and second string players midway through the third quarter allowing those that don’t usually play an opportunity to join in the fun.
