Chillicothe came off a 14 day layoff and gradually gained their rhythm to easily knock off the Waverly Tigers at Hatton Gym on Saturday night.

The Cavs exploded in the third quarter, finding the open man, hitting 10 of 12 shots, and out scoring the Tigers 22-9 to take control of the game.

Chillicothe used a hot second half to shoot a sizzling 56% from the field on the night, including 9 of 16 from three point land. Waverly shot only 16 of 48 from the floor and were often affected by the Cavalier defensive height in the lane.

The Cavs junior duo of Branden Noel and Jayvon Maughmer scored 16 of Chillicothe’s third quarter points and combined to miss only one shot in the third stanza. The duo led all scorers with Noel hitting for 25 and Maughmer 17.

Senior Cody Remington was the only Tiger to score in double figures as he took the ball to the basket for 18 points.

The win sends the Cavalier record to (7-3) as they face a busy week with trips to Hillsboro Tuesday, undefeated Canal Winchester Wednesday, and Miami Trace Friday. You can hear all three road games on News Radio WBEX 92.7FM/1490AM & iHeart Radio.

Coach Eric Huffer was very pleased with the Cavs contesting and affecting Waverly shots in the paint and had a smile when told that 8 Cavaliers scored in the game.
