"The second half, we played better. We still didn't play real good, but that goes to Logan. Logan made us play this way.''
Sorsaia tallied 11 of his 19 points in the final quarter as the Redskins started to build their lead. Also finishing in double-figure scoring were Ace Estep (12 points), Jake Lemmerman (11) and Dawson (10).
Logan's chances soured when point guard Zach Acord (14 points) fouled out with 3:50 left and Street (15 points, six rebounds) picked up his fifth at the 1:58 mark.
"[When Acord fouled out] we go from three ball-handlers to two ball-handlers,'' Hatcher said, "and those two are a freshman and a sophomore. I think Hurricane sensed that, felt that and came after us even more.''
Trevor Abbott led Logan's bench play by hitting a pair of 3-pointers and scoring 10 points. The Wildcats, shuttling a dozen players into the lineup, outrebounded the Redskins 43-37 with no one getting more than Street's six.
"I think this may be like one of my double-A teams,'' Hatcher said. "Five guys may play one night and five more may play the next night. We may use different guys at least through December. It may take us a few games to sort out who's ready for this and who's not.''
Sutherland realizes the expectations of his program changed when the Redskins reached the state tournament last winter.
"Maybe we were a little overconfident coming into the game,'' he said. "If we play like that, we'll never make it back to Charleston. We've got to get better. But we won. I'll take it. A win's a win.''
