Taylor County still controls its own 20th District Tournament destiny after downing visiting Adair County 67-55 on Tuesday night.
The Cardinals (12-7 overall and 4-1 vs. district foes) need to defeat Marion County next Friday (Feb. 3) at home to earn the No. 1 seed for the district tourney, which TCHS hosts Feb. 21-25.
Taylor County used a pair of Lucas Bradshaw buckets and two free tosses by Quentin Goodin to lead 6-0. However, Adair County (14-6, 2-3) came back to take a 9-6 advantage on Chase Melton’s basket and two Kel Stotts’ treys.
Caleb Wigginton’s free-throw jumper gave the Cardinals a 32-30 half-time cushion while Bradshaw had a seven-point third quarter and Wigginton had nine in the fourth frame and Goodin six as coach Troy Young’s club posted the double-digit triumph.
Taylor County visits Barren County on Saturday and will host Russell County on Tuesday before next Friday’s showdown with the Knights.
Note: The Cardinals will make up their game at North Hardin on Saturday, Feb. 11.
