The Callaway Cavaliers, facing an overmatched Bremen squad, eased to a 77-40 victory on Saturday night.

The Cavaliers (10-6 overall) improved to 7-3 in Region 5-AA, and they remained in second place, a half-game ahead of the Temple Tigers.

If Callaway finishes the regular season in second place, it will earn a first-round bye in the region tournament and earn an automatic place in the state tournament.

Callaway closes its region schedule with a game at Jordan on Tuesday and a home game against Lamar County on Friday.

Callaway also has a non-region game at Valley on Wednesday.

Callaway didn’t figure to have much problem with a Bremen team that’s only won one game this season, and that’s how it played out.

The Cavaliers were ahead 26-5 after the first quarter, and they were ahead 45-17 at the half and 67-28 through three quarters.

Antinez Blount led Callaway’s balanced scoring attack with 16 points, and Javontay Boddie and Duke Simpson had 14 points apiece.

Demetrius Coleman chipped in with eight points, and 12 different Callaway players scored.
