HUNTINGTON – Share, share, and share alike – that was the motto of the Westfield Technical Academy boys basketball team.
Westfield Tech employed a balanced attack with everyone receiving equal playing time in Monday’s 70-30 road win over Gateway Regional.
Josh Bush led the Tigers with 12 points.
Ryan Orr paced Gateway, which played with just eight players as some of the Gators were a bit “under the weather.” He finished with a team-high 12 points.
