Eastern Pulls Away From Corbin In Boys Sweet 16

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Speed dominated power as Eastern held off
Corbin 75-61 to advance in the Boys' Sweet Sixteen State Basketball
Tournament at Rupp Arena on Wednesday.
Senior guard Chris Dowe scored 27 points to lead the Eastern

The Eagles managed to claw their way through eight first half
lead changes and hold at least a 10-point lead throughout most of
the second half. Over-matched in the paint, the Eagles still
out-rebounded the Redhounds 49 to 29.
Corbin (29-4) was led by senior forward Josh Crawford with 33
points.
Eastern will play Louisville city rival Central on Friday at
1:30 p.m. in the quarterfinal round.
