Boone blowout brings Crockett to 9-0

Nearly three weeks into the 2014-15 season, the David Crockett Pioneers have yet to lose a game and have rarely been challenged. In what is shaping up to be the best season in school history, the Pioneers took another step forward last week with an 85-41 statement win over rival Daniel Boone.
Prior to defeating the Blazers, the Pioneers opened the week in Blountville on Dec. 2 against another conference opponent, Sullivan Central.
The Pioneers opened the contest with a 25-7 first quarter and extended their advantage to 45-17 by intermission.
While Crockett took their foot off the gas for much of the second half, they did have 10 players score in the contest in a 71-48 win. Patrick Good led the way for the Pioneers, finishing with 16 points.
Before traveling to Jonesborough on Dec. 5 to take on the conference’s top team, the Trailblazers opened their week with two conference matchups.
Boone defeated Volunteer 62-58 in overtime on Dec. 2 and lost in the final seconds of their Dec. 4 contest against Sullivan Central, 57-56.
The rivals concluded the week’s action against one another on Dec. 5 where the Pioneers captured their ninth straight win of the season in dominant fashion.
Crockett piled on 25 points in the first quarter while holding Boone to just eight points and extended their lead to 51-17 at the break after outscoring the Blazers 26-9 in the second.
Boone would slow the Pioneer offense in the third quarter and actually outscore the Pioneers 17-14 in the stanza, but the swing was short-lived as Crockett finished as they had started, with a 20-7 advantage over the final eight minutes.
The Blazers, who only eclipsed 10 points in one quarter, had just one player reach double-figures with Ryan Keever leading all Blazers with 10 points.
The Pioneers had three players score in double-figures with Good leading the way with 25 points. Dustin Day and Ian Martin added 13 and 11 points respectively.
With holiday tournaments set to tip off over the next few weeks, the Pioneers hold the top spot in the Big 7 with a 3-0 conference record. The loss dropped Boone to 1-3 in the conference and 2-7 overall.
