Harrodsburg pays for missed layups in loss to Southwestern

January 21, 2004

HARRODSBURG - Two free throws by Jonathan Edwards with 4.6 seconds to play lifted Pulaski Southwestern over Harrodsburg 46-44 Tuesday night.

But while those shots provided the difference in the game, Harrodsburg coach Spencer Tatum said his team was denied a chance to win because it missed too many easy shots during the game.

"This was just another game in which we had an excellent chance to come out with a victory, but throughout the course of the game we missed entirely too many easy shots," Tatum said. "That's been a problem for us all season long, missing too many opportunities for easy baskets, whether it be off offensive rebounds or in transition."

Tatum said the Pioneers missed 12 layups.

"We played pretty good defense, but we missed too many easy baskets to come away with the victory," Tatum said.

Harrodsburg (5-9) shot 47.2 percent (17-for-36) overall from the field and hit eight of 12 free throws. The Pioneers also had 20 turnovers and only seven assists.


Mark Dunn led Harrodsburg with 14 points, going 5-for-9 from the field and 4-for-5 at the free-throw line. Mariqus Brown, who was 5-for-5 from the field, added 11 points.

Justin Doolin had eight of the Pioneers' 27 rebounds, while Dunn had 11.

Edwards led Southwestern (7-7) with 15 points; Chris Roberts added 13.
