CAPE CENTRAL -- On Senior Night at Cape Central High School it was two seniors combined with poor shooting from the Dexter Bearcats that lifted the Tigers to a 57-35 SEMO Conference win on Friday night.

Seniors Josh Harris and Rick Russell combined for 30 points and 21 rebounds, including all of Cape Central's first quarter points as the Tigers jumped out to a 13-5 lead and never trailed the Bearcats en route to their easy win.

"Rick and Josh both have come a long way," said Cape Central coach Drew Church. "This is both of their first years playing varsity basketball. They have learned through the season and they get good shots out of our offense now."
