Spartan boys beat King’s Academy, G-P


The Webb School Spartans boys basketball team had a recent string of success after a slow start to the 2006-07 season, defeating both King’s Academy, 64-42, and Gatlinburg-Pittman, 68-63.

Webb established an early lead on King’s Academy and never looked back. The Spartans’ defense was solid, causing 27 turnovers and holding King’s Academy under 50 percent shooting.

Webb controlled the tempo of the game throughout, and had 16 team assists to only nine turnovers.

On the offensive side of the ball, the scoring was very evenly distributed. The Spartans were led by Matt Mitchell and Dwight Tarwater’s 14 points each.

The Spartans’ second game of the week, against Gatlinburg-Pittman, proved to be a much more contested game. The two teams’ scoring each quarter was neck-and-neck with neither team winning a quarter by more than two points.

However, the deciding factors in the game for the Spartans were stout defense, high shooting percentage and ability to control the boards.

Webb held Gatlinburg-Pittman to 38 percent shooting from the field while the Spartans shot 56 percent from the floor while winning the rebounding battle by 14 boards.

The Spartans were led by Matt Mitchell, who dropped in 28 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Also in double-figures scoring for Webb were Neal Robinson, 11, and Dwight Tarwater, 10.

These victories improved Webb’s record to 2-3.
