A big night by Jacarius Burks wasn’t enough as Hopkinsville fell 57-47 at Warren Central Tuesday. The loss marked the fourth time in their last six games the Tigers have failed to hit the 50-point mark – all losses.
Warren Central led 12-6 after one quarter and 31-21 at halftime. The Dragons kept the lead at double-digits most of the second half, although the Tigers used an 11-0 run early in the fourth quarter to cut the deficit to five.
Burks finished with 22 points, and James Nicholas scored 13 points.
Hopkinsville (6-10) will play in the Music City Classic Saturday afternoon Nashville against undefeated Murfreesboro Blackman. The Blaze are 17-0 and ranked third in the Tennessee Class 3A basketball poll.
