Woodland Invitational

MARBLE HILL -- Seth Gaines scored a game-high 37 points and hauled in nine rebounds as the Woodland Cardinals pulled off a mild upset with a 72-50 victory over the Oak Ridge Bluejays in the first round of the Woodland Invitational Basketball Tournament.

Woodland, 1-0 overall and the fifth seed in the tourney, used a strong defense to force 30 Bluejay turnovers.

"I was real pleased with our effort on defense," Woodland coach Dave Mirly said. "Our intensity level was really high, and we played really well overall. We out-rebounded them by 14, and that was a big key."

The Cardinals took a 17-6 lead after the first quarter of play before Oak Ridge stormed back to trim the lead to 26-25 at the half. Woodland extended the lead to 45-39 going into the final period before exploding for 27 points in the final eight minutes of regulation.

Chance Barham handed out 10 assists in the win, helping Cody Barrett score 12 and Jordan King tally 10.

Johnnie Price led the Bluejays with 20 points, while Ryan Pohlman added 12 and Jon McMillan chipped in with 11 in the losing effort.

Four Meadow Heights players reached double figures as the Panthers (No. 2) rolled to a 79-47 win over the Zalma Bulldogs Tuesday in first-round action.

Anthony Bollinger led the charge with 19, Keith Fulton poured in 16, John Long added 14 and Nathan Revelle scored 13 for the Panthers.
