    Cannelton scored several times in transition as well.

    “We moved the ball down the floor well,” said Garrett.  “Our kids made some nice outlet passes.”

    Tired legs from playing on the third consecutive night may have hurt the Marksmen’s shooting. “They were three very physical basketball games,” said Hayes.
