Cyril has all the answers in 74-56 win over Lomega at Class B state tournament
From the start, it didn’t appear it would be Lomega’s day.
And it wasn’t.
The Raiders saw their season come to an end Wednesday as they fell prey to Cyril 74-56 in the Class B quarterfinals at State Fair Arena.
The ninth-ranked Pirates, who owned a two-point win over Lomega earlier this season, scored the game’s first nine points.
Although Lomega answered with its own 7-0 run and got as close as one 11-10, Cyril had an answer for every Raider run.
The Pirates led 17-12 after a quarter before Ryan Hart caught fire in the second.
The junior nailed four second-quarter treys as his team built a 39-24 halftime lead.
Lomega answered the third quarter bell with a 7-0 run, but yet another Hart trey was part of an 8-0 Pirate burst that pushed the lead to 47-31.
Cyril’s advantage was as big as 18 in the third before Noah Snowden and Riley Lumpkin buckets helped cut it to 11 entering the fourth.
Once there, the Raiders got within single digits, but never closer than nine points.
Lumpkin and Snowden scored 22 apiece for Lomega, but no other Raider reached double digits.
The Raiders were 6 of 32 from 3-point range and shot 31 percent overall.
Snowden also had a game-high 14 rebounds in his final game as a Raider.
Hart made six 3-pointers overall and scored 20 points to lead four Pirates in double figures.
Lomega’s season ended with a 22-4 record.
