ALLEN – Brady Benedict tossed in 11 points, including one 3-point basket, and Trayson Miller tallied 10 points as the Class A 10th-ranked Roff Tigers outlasted the eighth-ranked Asher Indians, 41-29, for third place Saturday in the Pontotoc Conference Tournament.
Roff also received seven points from Wil Joplin.
Mike McDonald led Asher with 11 points and Patch Hamilton ended up with 10 as he also pulled down 10 rebounds for a double-double. Juston Melton followed with six points.
“Roff is very talented and well-coached. They were stunned by Allen in the semifinals, but continue to be a problem for us,” said Asher head coach Scott Hamilton. “We held on for 3 ½ quarters in a 3-point ball game, but they seemed to step on the gas in the end to make it a 12-point difference in the end.”
The Indians, 6-2 on the season, play at Wapanucka tonight.
