Kolby Morgan scored 20, Dalton Yancey added 13, Andrew Dewitt flushed a two-handed slam as an exclamation point, and Oneida rolled to a 60-24 win over Rockwood at OHS Gymnasium on Friday to remain undefeated in District 3-A play.
The game was an excellent bounce-back effort by the Indians after a frustrating game against Barbourville to cap the South Fork Physical Therapy Christmas Classic at the beginning of the week.
Friday’s game was never close, as Oneida jumped to a 20-4 lead in the first quarter and rolled from there. The score was 42-14 at halftime.
Morgan had 15 first half points, including 10 in the second quarter. Yancey scored eight of his 13 in the final period.
Besides a 10-point second quarter, Rockwood didn’t score more than five points in any 8-minute period, and the Indians were able to limit Nate Brackett to three points, though the standout Rockwood senior did have 12 rebounds.
The win improved Oneida to 6-0 in District 3-A play, keeping the Indians a half-game ahead of Harriman in the district standings. The Indians and Blue Devils are the last two undefeated teams in the district, and will meet in Roane County on Tuesday.
