The Boylan Titans, ranked 6th in the 3A polls, are now 22-2 overall and still perfect in NIC-10 play, defeating Auburn 58-49 on Wednesday at Boylan.
Luke McDermortt (17 points), Anthony Foreman (12 points) and Kevin Diemer (12 points) all contributed double-figure scoring nights for the Titans, who jumped out to a 10-0 lead to start the game. The Knights fought back to take a 21-20 lead into halftime.
Boylan created separation in the second half, taking a 45-35 lead, but Auburn whittled that down to a two-point deficit in the final minutes. Clutch free-throw shooting secured the win for the hosts, who now head to Stephenson County on Friday for a battle with Freeport.
