NOTEWORTHY: Heritage Hall, ranked No. 13 in Class 3A, exploded for 40 second-half points and outrebounded Byng, 37-15, en route to the surprisingly easy victory. The Pirates shot only 14-of-44 (5-for-27 in the second half) from the field, and Heritage Hall went 27-for-51 overall and 6-for-10 from 3-point range. Byng’s leading scorer, sophomore center Caleb Timmons, went without a field goal and finished with just five points.

COACH’S QUOTE: “In the third quarter, the wheels just fell off. We weren’t playing hard enough, and they were muscling us around. Caleb picked up his fourth foul early in the third quarter, and the game just kind of got away from us. We just rested the starters in the fourth quarter to get ready for today.” — Byng coach Tommy Eaton.

Records: Byng 6-4.

Next Up: Byng vs. Shawnee JV today at 12:20 p.m.
