Princeton, WV (WOAY) – Princeton boys basketball welcomed Wyoming East to Mercer County on Friday, with the Tigers looking for a second win against the Warriors, having won at the War Zone in January.
Like many games throughout the region, this contest began with a moment of silence in honor of Don Nuckols, the legendary Mullens basketball coach who passed away Thursday.
Both teams had quick starts on offense, with Princeton being led by Cole Cochran, who had 19 points on the evening. Just like last Friday against Westside, Corey McKinney had a standout first half, as he also totaled 19 points.
With the game tied at 10 after the first quarter, Princeton gained momentum in the second quarter to lead 31-18 at halftime. The Tigers would go on to win 55-44.
