It wasn’t Columbian’s best night of perimeter shooting, but that was only half of a double-whammy for the Tornadoes. The other half was what Willard did at the other end. The Crimson Flashes had the get-out-and-go offense running in top form in racing to an 85-64 non-league win at ...

Bowerman powers Tigers over Carey
