CANNELTON - Cannelton used a strong defense to beat Cloverport 36-21 in eighth grade boys basketball Thursday.
"We played a 2-3 or 2-1-2 zone and packed it in tight because they had a real big kid," said Cannelton Coach Corey Jennings. "He was an inch or two taller than Quinn (Duke, Cannelton's 6-foot center)."
Dylan May had 16 points, seven rebounds and four steals for Cannelton.
Duke added nine points, 13 rebounds and four blocked shots and Hunter Herzog had six points, six rebounds and four steals.
