Defensively, CMS held West to just 3 points in the third quarter to help the Raiders pull away. Red Raider Levi Rollman led the way with 9 points, followed closely by Luke Campbell with 7. Campbell started red hot – with 7 points in the first quarter, including a 3-pointer.

The Raiders move to 4-11 on the season with the win.

Both Raiders and Lady Raiders were scheduled to host Warren County Thursday and play at Harris Friday. Both games have been postponed due to weather.

CMS will now host Warren County Monday for 8th grade night, and travel to Harris next Thursday, Jan. 13. The CTC tournament has been pushed back a week.
