Columbus East scored off Seymour turnovers, made baskets in transition and had some putbacks.
That combination resulted in a 51-18 lead at halftime of Saturday’s Hoosier Hills Conference boys basketball game at Seymour, and the Olympians moved to 4-0 in the HHC and 8-1 overall with the 75-41 win.
Owls coach Scott Miller said his team needed better intensity against one of the top HHC teams.
“Columbus East is the best team in our conference. They have the best basketball players in the Hoosier Hills,” Miller said. “We were disappointed in the putback baskets and how easily they got to the rim in the first half. Our intensity dropped when we started getting sloppy with the ball.”
