The Ouachita boys basketball team got off to a near flawless start in the 2019 Belton/Williams Classic Wednesday night by beating North Caddo 82-32.
Ouachita opened with a 21-0 run, consistently attacking the paint and converting underneath. North Caddo scored its first two points with 1:52 remaining in the quarter as the Lions forced several turnovers, which led to east buckets on the other end.
Ouachita head coach Jeremy Madison made a platoon swap midway through the second quarter after Quez Owens’ 3-pointer gave the Lions a 35-8 lead. Madison implemented the two-platoon system throughout the contest.
Matt Hayman drained three triples to lead the Lions with 13 points in the victory.
