Top Spartans scorers held in check: 63-50

KNOXVILLE — Holding Webb School’s top two scorers to a combined eight points told the story in Catholic’s 63-50 region road win Friday, Jan. 28.

“We took it personal, like the match-up with them,” said Blue Cain, KCHS junior wing who scored 18. The Irish (19-3, 4-0) were led by senior UT signee B.J. Edwards’ 22 points
