Berryville basketball coach Brent Compton got his 200th win with the Bobcats Monday night, as Berryville recorded an 84-57 home victory over Kingston.

Five players finished in double figures for the Bobcats.

"Last night was the first time we have had five guys in double digits," Compton said. "That's a goal of ours, to spread the ball around like that. Anytime you can get five guys in double digits, that really makes our team hard to guard. If we can continue to do that and our guys be willing to share the ball and not care who gets the credit, we will continue to improve."

Berryville jumped out to a 9-0 lead and took a 21-13 lead into the second quarter. Ty Allen, Brady Smith and Jarrett Ray all made three-pointers in the first quarter. The Bobcats extended their lead to 44-31 at halftime. Zack Webb and Allen each added eight points in the second quarter.

Compton was pleased to get his 200th victory.

"I am starting my 14th season here at Berryville," Compton said. "This is home. The Bobcats mean everything to me. To have success and watch these kids come through here year after year, develop them into young men and be successful outside of school is special."

Scotland Lucas added two three-pointers in the third quarter and Allen made another, as the Berryville lead grew to 70-44 entering the fourth quarter. Ray finished the game with 18 points, while Lucas had 16. Webb and Allen each scored 14 points, while Kyler Kendrick added 11. Berryville played its final game before Thanksgiving break on Tuesday at Cassville, Mo.

"I have never been a part of a game in Cassville and none of our kids have been either," Compton said. "It will be a little different experience. We are crossing the border. The basketball is going to be a little different. It's round, but it's not a Wave ball so that could affect us a little bit. I have very little information on Cassville because they haven't played a game yet, so I'm not sure what we are getting into, but hopefully we will play hard, execute and things will work out for us."
