Tanner Winchester and Quinn Barnhart combined for 18 first-quarter points as Unatego bolted to an 18-point lead en route to a 58-44 Midstate Athletic Conference boys basketball victory over visiting Delhi on Tuesday.
Winchester scored all 10 of his points and Barnhart had eight of his game-high 17 points in the opening eight minutes as the Spartans opened a 22-4 lead.
“The half-court defense did it and we scored a lot in transition,” Unatego coach Jim Knight said.
Barnhart tied his season high for scoring and also grabbed 10 rebounds. Phil Youngs contributed 12 points and Kellen Komenda finished with eight for the Spartans.
“We’re averaging four (players) in double figures,” Knight said. “We share the ball and everyone gets out and runs. We don’t count on one guy, that’s for sure.”
Unatego (5-3, 4-0) will host Harpursville on Thursday in its Coaches vs. Cancer game. All proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society.
