Oak Ridge topped 100 points and senior Tajion Jones scored 32 as the Wildcats beat Halls 108-56 at home on Monday. It was the fifth-highest point total for an Oak Ridge game in program history, according to broadcaster David Clary. The record of 137 was set in 1971.
It was an apparent career high for Jones. Eighteen of his points came from six three-point shots, and he had 24 points in the first half alone.
“He’s shooting well,” Oak Ridge Coach Aaron Green said.
Senior Tyshawn Young, who has had some high-scoring games in the past month, added 27 points, and senior Anthony Gibson had 17.
