H.S. HOOPS: Abshear helps Southern top Rockcastle, Indians roll

RICHMOND — Despite playing with an injured shoulder, senior Tyler Abshear lead Madison Southern to a victory Tuesday in Berea.

The point guard had a game-high 30 points as the Eagles defeated Rockcastle County, 73-56. Michael Rothermel added 17 points and Damien Harris and Spencer Stone each had eight points for Southern (12-8).

“I’m glad that he played,” Southern coach Shane Buttery said of Abshear. “That was a courageous effort.”

Southern led for most of the game. The Eagles were up 18-15 after the first quarter and 31-26 at halftime.

Southern out-scored the Rockets 21-14 in the third quarter to take control.

Devante Linville provided the Eagles with a spark off the bench in the first half after some starters got into foul trouble. He scored four points and had nine rebounds.

Drew Taylor and Marlin Taylor each had two points.

Southern had 16 turnovers.

The Eagles are set to return to action Friday at West Jessamine.
