    North Harrison called a 30 second time out down 14-8, but it didn’t really help.
    Providence led 20-8 after a three and a 3 of 4 free throw stretch right before the 2nd quarter.
    Southard scored a pair of freebies right before the quarter end to give north Harrison a brief respite.
    Edwards and Colin Book scored to get the Cougars within 20-14, but the pioneers pulled out in front again 25-14. Lincoln Jones’ bucket (4:51) was the only scoring the Cougars could muster until Dakota Bosler scored on a pair of free throws with 51 seconds left in the 2nd quarter.
