Big Red routs Edison, 71-27

December 22, 2012
Morning Journal News

STEUBENVILLE It has been said that opposites attract. That was the case Friday night, until Big Red pulled away from the Wildcats.

The Big Red boys' basketball team scored at least 15 points in all four quarters, and Big Red led by as many as 46 points en route to a 71-27 win Friday over visiting Jefferson County rival Edison at the Crimson Center.

With the win, Big Red improves to 4-2 on the season. With the loss, the Wildcats drop to 1-6.

Edison coach Nate Moses declined to comment.

The Wildcats came out and wanted to patient on offense, and Edison was successful early on as the Wildcats took an early 4-0 lead. On the other hand, Big Red wanted to get out and run up and down the floor, and after a slow start Big Red was able to just that in pulling away to the 44-point victory.

"We were chasing them while they were running their flex," Big Red head coach Mike Haney said. "We were getting behind their picks, and they were able to get off to a good start."
