In the boys’ game, illness forced coach Will Pannell to dress only 12 players including student manager Stevie Boles.  All 12 played in the game including Boles who scored his first career 2 points on a 3rd quarter basket.  Westwood built a 27 to 2 lead at the half before playing 6th graders in the 2nd half.  Jayden Carter led Westwood in scoring with 14 points, all of those coming in the 1st half.  Caiden Warren added 9 points while Matt Moore chipped in 4 points.
