Highlights/key moments: Needing a win to guarantee a playoff spot, Bow jumped out to a 12-7 after the first quarter and trailed by only three, 25-22, at halftime. But Pembroke upped its defensive pressure in the third quarter, led by Linscott and Tyler Smith, and opened up a 39-26 lead going into the fourth.
Coach’s quote: “We locked up the third seed in the tournament with the win, so now we’ve got to concentrate on the tournament and come ready to play. The Bow kids played hard and (coach) Frank Moreno is doing a great job with a young team. They are going to be a team to be reckoned with in the future.” – Pembroke’s Rich Otis
