Senior guard Matt Weber drilled five 3-point baskets en route to a game-high 19 points to lead the Pontiac High School boys basketball team to a 76-61 win over Hoopeston Area at the Watseka Tournament.

The Indians improved to 8-0 overall and 2-0 in tourney play.

Pontiac jumped out to leads of 22-12 after one quarter and 37-24 at the half and were never threatened as the Indians outscored Hoopeston 24-14 in the third period to take a 61-38 lead with one quarter to play.

"We came out and shot the ball well from the perimeter early when they were packed in a zone," said Pontiac coach Jake Krause. "That forced them to come out and really opened things up on the inside for us."

Junior forward Kevin Lyons added 12 points for Pontiac while David Shepherd, Kody Strong and Eric Davis each had eight points for the Indians. Strong grabbed 11 rebounds to lead Pontiac on the boards.

The Indians return to action at 7:30 tonight in tournament play against host Watseka.
