The June Buchanan Crusaders rolled to an easy 84-39 victory over the visiting Jenkins Cavaliers Tuesday night in a 53rd district match-up.

The Cavaliers opened the contest by taking the early lead, but they were unable to stop the flurry of buckets that the Crusaders soon unleashed. Backed by solid 57% field goal shooting (36-63), the hosts were able to pull away quickly, as Coach Elisha Justice was able to freely utilize his bench.

For the victors (10-3), Idris Akinyemi paved the way with 18 points on 8-10 shooting. Princewell Anosike followed in double figures with 14 points and added a game high of 11 rebounds. Hunter Hammond also cracked double figures with 10 points.
