Dalton Brown scored seven points and grabbed six rebounds. Dalton Brown and Hayden Roe scored three points each and Dalton Thornsberry, Chase Hanshaw and Jacob Nunley each had two points.

West Carter had 16 turnovers, 14 of which Rowan County forced. Rowan County set back in their zone and at times frustrated the Comets when they were looking for open shots.

“We weren’t patient enough against their zone to get a good look at the rim,” Webb said. “We would make one or two passes and try to force it into the interior and shoot a contested shot. You have to get the zone to move side-to-side a couple of times to loosen it up to find an opening to get a higher percentage shot and we didn’t do that. It was an ugly game on our side but we’ll get better.”

West Carter had its home opener Tuesday night against one of the top teams in the 15th Region in Sheldon Clark. They will travel to Fleming County Saturday night to take part in the EKC Tournament.

“We’re making progress,” Webb said. “We’re playing some very good teams early in our schedule. Our guys are getting tested early so we’ll see what they’re made of.”
