Boys basketball: Titan first-half flurry stops Pioneers

The Hill-Murray Pioneers traveled to Tartan Jan. 29 for a Classic Suburban Conference boys basketball confrontation and ended up on the bottom side of an 85-70 final tally.
From the stands, it may have appeared there were two different teams playing two different games. The first half belonged to Tartan and the second half to the Pioneers, as they came back and outscored the Titans by 11. But for the Pioneers it was not enough to overcome Tartan’s domination in the first 18 minutes.
