Wildcats fall short against Tigers, 75-63
In the first game of the double header against Caldwell County, the Wildcats were defeated with a score of 75-63.
Still, it was a huge game for Connor Barnes as he scored 20 points for the Wildcats. Micah Brown and Cam Jordan followed with 11 points each. Caldwell knew that Devron Triplet was Trigg's powerhouse with the ball, so the focused more on him. This allowed other players to step up and score big for the Cats.
The Wildcats need to win two of their next three games in order to reach double-digits in wins for the 17th straight season.
