For the second time this season the Bulldogs handled the Jennings County Panthers with ease; this time it was in the first round of sectional Feb. 28, 84-73.
For about half the first quarter there was good basketball, until junior Romeo Langford took over. Romeo went on a 6-point run midway in the quarter and the Panthers could not stop him. Langford had 10 at the end of the first quarter and the Bulldogs were riding on an 18-8 lead at the end of the first. The Bulldogs kept pouring it on during the second and never looked back as the 4A defending state champions were leading by 21 at halftime.
With a double digit lead at the half, the Bulldog fans could rest easy and enjoy watching their team cruise to the end of the first round of sectionals.
New Albany’s big three senior Isaac Hibbard, juniors Romeo Langford, and Sean East all had double digit games. Langford finished with 31, followed by Hibbard with 16, and East ended with 11.
