"They started guarding us man-to-man, and that's what we're best at [attacking]," said Matt Chandler, who led with 21 points. "Our offense always works on man-to-man defense, we had very good movement and we went down the floor really fast, got fast-break points really easy."
Poca (7-1) scored every which way, also hitting 9 of 20 from 3-point range and scoring 24 points on 15 Scott turnovers. Freshman Elijah Cuffee hit three 3-pointers en route to his 19 points, and four other Dots chipped in at least six.
The Dots held Scott to 16-of-49 shooting, 32.7 percent. Coach Allen Osborne wasn't happy with the defense in the fourth quarter (picky, picky), but otherwise was pleased with his team's efficiency at both ends.
"We've got some kids who can shoot it," Osborne said. "We've got some balance, and they always find the open guy, and they're fun to coach."
The result leaves Cabell looking for an answer or two with his Skyhawks, who were led by Eric May's 13 points.
"We're not where we need to be right now," he said. "We're nowhere close to where we were last year, and we've got some issues to figure out, maybe some personnel to figure out, and hopefully everything pans out before sectionals roll around.
"We definitely want to win our sectional so we don't see Poca in the region."
