Williamsport added another chapter to its book of defensive accomplshments Friday night.
The Wildcats didn't allow Catoctin a shot in the second half until the 3:18 mark of the third quarter, and they limited the Cougars to just 14 total points in the second half. The defensive blanket the Wildcats threw over Catoctin in the second half allowed Williamsport to turn a slim 28-24 halftime advantage into a 60-38 rout of the Cougars.
The 38 points lowered opponents' per game scoring average against the Wildcats to 42 points per game.
"As a coach you have to love those numbers," Williamsport coach Kevin Murphy said. "There is never a night when you shouldn't play defense. When you play good defense, it allows you to overcome nights when you are not shooting the ball well or you are being too careless with the basketball and turning it over."
