WARREN — A 13-point halftime lead didn’t do much for Warren G. Harding coach Gabe Bubon.
The first-year Raiders coach was worried after Chaney hit a few shots and cut into what was a 22-point advantage. With a young team returning just two starters from last year, Bubon wasn’t sure how Harding would react to a momentum swing.
“I’m not going to lie to you, I got a little nervous there toward the end of the half,” he said, “but they responded.”
It helped that the Raiders’ two returning starters are really good.
Dom McGhee and D’Muntize Owens combined for 51 points, and Harding dominated upstart Chaney, 79-51, in their home opener Tuesday.
