Jonathan King continued his tear on Senior Night Friday at Wildcat Gym. King scored 30 points for the second straight night, leading Trigg County past Caldwell County, 94-71 in a 5th District boys’ basketball game. King, who led the Wildcats with a game-high 30 points, was recognized as a McDonald’s All-American Nominee Friday when Trigg County hosted longtime rival Caldwell County.

One day earlier, King had scored 30 points and snatched up a career-high 22 rebounds in a loss to Fort Campbell.

As a team, Trigg County connected on 13 three-point field goals. The Wildcats were able to hit from the outside both early and late during the 5th District game.

King hit five three-point field goals. Bradley Davis connected on a trio of three-pointers for the Wildcats.

Trigg County, which improved to 15-11, featured five different double figures scorers. Shelton Burruss netted 14 points, Jalik Alexander scored 13, Dustin White dumped in 12 and Davis added 11 for the Wildcats.

“Senior Night went really well for us,” said Trigg County Coach Mike Wright. “Our seniors all had good nights in their last regular season home game. It was good to see Jonathan King, Dustin White, Bradley Davis and Shelton Burruss go out like that.”

Trigg County dominated from start to finish, doubling up Caldwell County 22-11 in the opening quarter. The Wildcats carried a comfortable 50-28 lead into halftime. Trigg County led 76-47 at the conclusion of the fourth quarter.

Brandon Sigler and Jordan Choate led Caldwell County (2-13) with 17 points apiece as the Tigers dropped their seventh straight game.
