STAT TRACKER

INSIDE THE BOXSCORE

  • The Pilots jumped out to as much as a 52-30 lead in the second quarter before the Lancers closed on a 12-5 run to end the half at 57-42 Pilots.
  • Trey’von Covington picked up where he left off against Great Lakes Christian, knocking down his first two three-pointers and scoring 10 of the Pilots 19 points in the first 5:30 of the game.
  • The Pilots hit the century mark in points for the second consecutive game, shooting 54.2% from the field and held the Lancers to just 34.6% shooting.

COACH LIGHTFOOT SAYS

  • “Trey’von once again got us off to a great start. Then we were carried by a solid performance by Paul and Kyle Thompson off the bench. It was a good two-game travel schedule for us as we prepare for the second half of the season and return home for two big league games next week.”
