The Wossman boys basketball team took care of St. Helena in the first round with a 81-39 victory Wednesday night in the Belton/Williams Classic.

Wossman raced out to an 11-2 lead in the first quarter. Nick Lavender and Nick Traylor occupied space inside and muscled St. Helena around in the post.

Meanwhile, head coach Casey Jones elected to have Traylor, along with guard Brandon Dennis utilize a full court press, which gave St. Helena fits.

Traylor showcased his versatility as a defender and a scorer as he drained a triple early into the first quarter.

Wossman controlled the tempo as the Wildcats raced toward a 29-10 lead in the second quarter.

The Wildcats owner the offensive glass all night.

A 3-pointer from Jaylen Hall allowed Wossman to take a 30-point lead with less that two minutes left in the half.
