January 8, 2015

The Barbourville Tiger basketball team took back to the hardwood on Dec. 29 to compete in the Pine Mountain Classic tournament at Pineville High School after a six day break for Christmas.

The Tigers won three straight games to capture the title with an opening day win over Middlesboro 80-38. The second day of the competition, Barbourville defeated a scrappy Cumberland Gap, TN team 65-32 and finished up with a hard fought win over Powell County on day three 70-59.

The Middlesboro game saw the Tigers shoot over 62% from the field while connecting on 41% from the three point line.

Eleven Barbourville players made it into the scoring column with Tate Carter pouring in a team high 16 points. Brently Perry added 14; James Witt tossed in nine while Bradley Warren and Collin Grubb each had seven points.
