Ringgold had one of the hottest players in Ridgeland's Thanksgiving tournament going into its final game Saturday, but Cass High's boys basketball team turned him ice cold.
The Colonels routed the Generals, 59-24, to finish the tournament unbeaten.
Cass coach Greg Scott said Ringgold's junior shooting guard, Nick Scott, had scored 75 points in two games, including 14 made 3-pointers.
"We played tremendous defense on him tonight," Greg Scott said of the Colonels, who held Nick Scott to 6 points and one missed 3-point attempt.
Cass led 33-18 at halftime and held a 47-20 lead after the third quarter.
Trey Walker scored a team-high 14 points for the Colonels with other scorers including: Tarris Batiste, 7; Ian Clay, 7; Kadeem Sutton, 6; Tony Mitchell, 5; Michael Saunders, 4; Walter Johnson, 2; Zeke Reed, 2; Jozelle Payne, 2; Jay Stephens, 2; Sam Taylor, 2; and Kaleb Reed, 1.
Cass won its other two games of the tournament, which was held in Rossville. The Colonels beat Heritage-Catoosa, 62-50, on Wednesday -- they led 33-24 at the half and 48-37 at the end of the third quarter -- and also picked up a season-opening win Tuesday over the host Ridgeland Panthers, 64-43.
Cass led Ridgeland 29-16 at halftime and 49-30 going into the fourth quarter.
Scorers for Cass against the Generals were Walker (14), Stephens (10), Taylor (9), Reed (8), Mitchell (7), Batiste (6), Payne (4), Elijah Windom (2) and Clay (2).
Walker led the Colonels in scoring against the Panthers, too, totaling 15. Taylor (8), Reed (8), Batiste (7), Stephens (7), Windom (5), Clay (4), Sutton (3), Payne (2), Zeke Reed (2), Mitchell (2) and Saunders (1).
Cass (3-0) returns to action Saturday as it travels to face rival Cartersville.
