Roundup: Springer boys basketball beats Maysville for 9th straight win
A winning streak is never easy to keep alive, especially when the regular season is winding down and opponents are looking for momentum.
The Springer High School boys basketball team knows that, but the victories keep piling up as the Cardinals won their ninth straight Tuesday in a 66-52 decision over Maysville.
Springer wasted little time out of the gate as three different athletes helped the Cardinals jump out to a 22-10 advantage at the end of the first quarter. That fast start was plenty as Springer extended the lead to 38-23 at halftime.
It was closer in the third quarter as Springer was outscored by a slim 14-10 margin, but a strong fourth clinched the win.
Malik Brown led the Cardinals with 21 points, while Mickey Hunnicutt added 18 and Cory Leu finished with 16.
