MADRID — Leading just 25-24 at the intermission, Madrid used an 18-8 edge in the third quarter to help the Tigers pull away for a 64-50 win over the Woodward-Granger boys in WCC hoops Friday.
Madrid (4-2, 4-2) used a size advantage to full effect to finish with a 28-18 edge in rebounds and a 10-1 advantage in blocked shots, and while most other statistics between the teams were fairly close, the 14 offensive rebounds the Tigers managed to grab enabled the hosts to score easily on second-chance points.
W-G (1-5, 1-5) simply had no answer for Luke Hudnutt, who barely missed recording the almost unheard of quadruple-double by scoring 19 points, grabbing 15 rebounds, blocking eight shots and distributing seven assists. He also had two steals in the win.
Sinjun Harshbarger had 24 points for the hosts, with Carson Polich and Cade Kirkpatrick scoring eight points apiece while Trevor Mertz adding three points and Michael Santi two. Polich had five steals and Kirkpatrick four assists, with Polich and Santi each making three assists.
Nick Squires led W-G with 15 points, with Bodie Harrison hitting for eight, Brady Aunspach seven and Marcus McConahay and Derick Morgan six points apiece. Five points from Brody Easter and three from Jake Greenwood capped the Hawk scoring.
Squires had five rebounds and McConahay four, with Aunspach making four assists and Greenwood three while Aunspach, Harrison and Morgan had two steals apiece.
W-G visits Panorama Tuesday for a WCC boys/girls set that will wrap the pre-holiday portion of their season. The Hawks will return to action Jan. 5 with a trip to Earlham.
