Junior guard Lindell Wigginton picked up right where he left off from Tuesday, scoring 19 points in the first quarter of Oak Hill’s blowout win over St. Ignatius Academy, 114-41.
Wigginton finished the night with 24 points, following up Tuesday’s 25-point performance against Mountain Mission.
The Warriors outscored St. Ignatius 33-11 in the first quarter, including a 20-4 run to start the ballgame. Khadim Sy scored four points and Braxton Key added two while Wigginton accounted for the other 14 points opening the game.
Things continued to get out of hand for St. Ignatius in the second quarter. Already trailing by 24, the Warriors closed he second quarter on a 15-0 run to take a 57-18 lead at the halftime break.
Mario Kegler returned to the lineup after missing Tuesday’s game and the senior did not appear to miss a beat, burying a long three-pointer and then converting an old fashion three-point play after finishing strong near the basket and drawing a foul. Wigginton, Sy, Devontae Shuler, Matt Coleman and Montez each scored a basket to close out the first half.
