Building on some perceived momentum gained during the Bluegrass Conference Tournament, the Twin Cedars girls basketball team notched a 45-30 win at home last night over Moravia, while the boys put up a 68-51 win over the visiting Mohawks.

The girls’ contest saw the Sabers jump out to an early 14-2 advantage, but then things slowed down offensively for the remainder of the game, as the Twin Cedars lead was whittled down to just five points entering the final quarter. Alee Hugen’s 15 points was tops on the team, with Ayla Crosby close behind in the scoring column at 13. The win pushes the Twin Cedars girls to an impressive 14-4 overall record and a 9-1 mark against conference opponents.

Four players scoring in double figures went a long way for the Twin Cedars boys, pushing the Sabers to a comfortable 17-point win. Hunter Embray had a game-high 20 points, while Derek and Dylan Springer were close behind with 14 and 10 points respectively. The win puts Twin Cedars at 5-4 against Bluegrass Conference teams this season, while improving the team to 8-10 overall.
