The Cavaliers took care of business in Highland County quickly by building a 29 point halftime lead over Hillsboro, on their way to a 64-37 win. Chillicothe scorched the nets from the three point arc, hitting six straight in the second quarter and 9 of 11 at one time in the first half and 13-20 for the game.
Junior guard Tre Beard was red hot hitting 6 of 7 trifectas on his way to a game high 19 points. Beard’s junior mates Brandon Noel and Jayvon Maughmer added 17 and 13 to the win. All three played a little over a half as the Cavaliers were up 61-24 after three quarters.
Seven Cavs scored and 13 saw playing time in the Chillicothe win. The Cavs move to 4-1 to finish the first half of FAC play and are tied with Washington CH heading to second round play.
Chillicothe nailed 13 threes and were 13 of 20 from the 3 point arc until the Cav subs went 0-5 in the final period. Hillsboro had a tough time getting good shots and managed only 23 attempts all night.
The Cavaliers continue a busy week on the road Wednesday when they travel to 13th ranked (Division 1) Canal Winchester. Chillicothe finishes the week at Miami Trace on Friday.
