NEW PALESTINE — New Palestine center Seth Cox entered the weekend having strung together six solid quarters, according to NP coach Adam Barton.
Make it 10.
Cox scored a career-high 16 points, leading a potent inside game offensively, and was key defensively for the Dragons in a 54-39 victory over visiting Westfield Friday.
Cox, the Dragons’ 7-foot senior center, hit 7-of-11 shots from the floor and grabbed five boards, while frontcourt running mate Connor Roach had six points and team-highs with six boards and four assists in New Palestine’s fourth straight victory.
“I told him as he came out, he’s had 10 great quarters in a row. He’s very consistent,” NP coach Adam Barton said of Cox. “Their kids would get in the lane, and even pull up at 15 feet, and know that big hand is coming at them, that makes it tough.
“Offensively, we only took eight threes. We didn’t have to — we knew we could throw it in the post and know Seth, Connor and Brandon (Jonas) were going to take care of things.”
