Cave Spring used an impressive inside game to jump out to an early advantage and the Knights held off a late charge by the Colonels to win the opening night match-up 79-67 in the Holiday Hoopla basketball tournament at the Salem Civic Center Monday night.

Cave Spring pounded the ball in the paint to 6’11” center Josh Henderson as they took a 40-22 half time lead. The Knights extended the advan- tage to 19 after three quarters before the always scrappy Colonels rallied to cut the deficit to 10 points in the fourth. Cave Spring responded down the stretch to secure the final margin.

Josh Henderson led all scorers with 25 points with teammate Clay Lacy pouring in 22 for the Knights. William Fleming was led by Miles Hen- derson’s 14 points, while Mack Tucker chipped in 13 for the Colonels.
