Score
COWBOYS: 79
BEN L. SMITH HIGH SCHOOL: 61

After nearly a week off for exams, the Cowboys got back into action tonight as they hosted conference foe Smith High School. The Golden Eagles are coming off of a disappointing loss from last Saturday afternoon, while the Cowboys are coming off a strong win against a solid Hickory team 84-48. The Cowboys were looking to stay undefeated on the year, while the Eagles were looking to stay in the hunt for second place in the competitive Piedmont Triad 3A. In their first match-up on January 7th, the Cowboys managed to keep the Eagles at arms distance for most of the night and finished off with a 69-55 win over at Smith. How would both teams handle the long layover? Tonight started as a back and forth battle. The Cowboys got up as much as 8-2 at the 6:31 mark. The Eagles scored to cut it to 8-4, but a quick turnaround made it 11-4 in favor of the Cowboys. Smith went on a quick 5-0 spurt and it was 11-9. A three point play by the Cowboys pushed it back out to 14-9. Yet again, it was the rangy athleticism of Smith that sparked another 5-0 blurb to tie it up at 14 apiece at the 1:50 mark. This time the Cowboys scored back to back field goals to make it 18-14, but Smith fought to make it 18-17 at the end of the first quarter. The second quarter started with the teams trading baskets to make it 20-19. A small 4-0 spot by the Cowboys got it to 24-19. Smith got a free-throw, and the Cowboys got another basket to make it 26-20. Slowly the Cowboys started to be more effective on the defensive side of the ball and got some stops and got the lead out to 9 4 times in the frame. Each time however, the Eagles would respond with a basket. With under a minute to play Southwest got the margin into double digits, and a deep three pointer just before the halftime buzzer by Keyshaun Langley made it 46-33. The second half was a slow, physical, and choppy war. The game seemed to grind to a halt with a parade of whistles and foul trouble. Despite the sloppy play, and inconsistent play on both sides of the ball, Southwest made more plays than the visitors and the lead got out to 25 three times in the frame until it ultimately settled at 62-43. The final frame was the same story-line. Both teams playing through foul trouble really showed the depth of Southwest as they managed to keep the Golden Eagles at bay. Despite some sloppiness, the Cowboys overcame a strong conference opponent to hold on for a solid 79-61 win to stay undefeated on the year at 18-0, and 7-0 in the Piedmont Triad 3A Conference. The Eagles were led my Silas Mason with 21 points. The Cowboys once again had several players in double figures. Highlights were: Jayden Turner with (21, 8 Rebs, 2 Stls, Blk), Keyshaun Langley with (17, 5 Asts, 4 Rebs, 2 Stls), Kobe Langley with (11, 6 Asts, 6 Rebs, 2 Blks, 2 Stls), and Christian Martin with (10, 3 Asts, 3 Rebs, 2 Stls). The Cowboys will hit the road for 2 difficult road games next week against conference foe Dudley, as well as 4A contender Northwest Guilford.
