From staff reports • Jan 16, 2019 at 2:24 AM

BRISTOL, Tenn. — Christian Webb scored 31 points to power Tennessee High to a 76-59 win over Daniel Boone in Big 7 Conference boys basketball action Tuesday night.

Webb scored early and often, making 11 field goals on 19 attempts. He also threw down a pair of two-handed dunks for the Vikings (17-5, 5-1), who kept pace atop the Big 7 standings.

“I just try to be consistent and play with energy,” he said. “I try to cheer my teammates to get us going.”

Chad Heglar and Ayden Begley scored 13 points apiece to lead the Trailblazers (7-9, 2-4), who had 18 turnovers.

After Tennessee High dominated the first eight minutes to lead 22-9 at the quarter break, Boone quit giving the ball away and got its fast break going to claw to within 31-29 by halftime.

But just as quickly, the Vikings regained command in the third quarter, with Webb leading the charge up top, producing a number of steals and subsequent layups out of Tennessee High’s matchup zone.
