Northeast Vernon County held their homecoming basketball games Friday night in Walker, and Bronaugh was the visiting team.

The two teams played a boys-girls doubleheader at the NEVC gym, with each team coming away with one victory.

In the girls' game, NEVC jumped out to a 14-2 lead in the first quarter, and controlled the game throughout.

Katie Foreman scored 10 of her game-high 17 points in the first period, including two 3-pointers to lead the Lady Knights.

In the second period Bronaugh started to mount a comeback, scoring 17 points and holding Bronaugh to 12 to cut the lead to 26-19 at halftime.

Whitney Hinkle and Brittany Mart led the comeback, as Hinkle scored six of her seven points and Mart added five.

The Lady Knights proved too powerful in the second half with a 15-6 third quarter to put the game away.

Randi Carter had six points during the third period to help the cause.

Becca Price had 11 points for the Lady Knights and Carter had 10.

Stormi Wilson led Bronaugh with 10 points.

The NEVC girls improved to 13-7 with the win.

In the boys' game it was Bronaugh jumping out to the big first quarter lead as Tyler Judd scored nine of his game-high 37 points in the opening period to help the Wildcats take a 20-7 lead.

In the second period the Wildcats increased their lead to 26 points, going into the half up 44-18.

In the second half the Knights continued to struggle against the Wildcat defense and they never threatened.

Judd was the only Wildcat in double figures.

Steve Koshko led the Knights with 13 points as they fell to 5-15 this season.

The Wildcats improved to 12-5 with the win.

Both teams will be in action next week at the GVVC Tournament.
