It took the Apalachee High School boys basketball team a little bit of time to get rolling but once the Wildcats did, the visiting Salem High School Seminoles didn’t know what hit them.
AHS did not hold a lead until the second half Friday night, but the Wildcats suddenly got hot from 3-point land and would lead by as many as 30 points before eventually posting an 87-67 Region 8-AAAAA win. AHS has now won a program best 10 games in a row and is now 12-1 overall.
Sophomore Kamar Baldwin scored 28 points for the night after being limited to seven in the first half. Baldwin also had 10 rebounds and five assists. Kent Knowles had a career-high 22 points.
