FAIRFIELD TWP. — The Cincinnati Christian School boys basketball team continues to roll.
The Cougars used defense on Tuesday night to get the job done.
Corey Rogers scored a game-high 18 points and collected five steals, Caleb Brown bucketed 15, Jacob Parnell had 13 and Cincinnati Christian cruised past Cincinnati Country Day 65-43 to remain unbeaten.
CCS moved to 11-0 overall and 7-0 in the Miami Valley Conference.
A steal and dunk by Brown was part of a 15-2 Cougar run that separated things heading into the second quarter.
Rogers knocked down a 3-pointer to end the scoring spree and give the Cougars a 19-11 lead with 5 minutes left in the first half.
“Our defense was on tonight,” Rogers said. “We were just trying get some defensive stops and get in transition.”
The Nighthawks never threatened the rest of the way.
“Rogers is a lockdown defender,” Cincinnati Christian coach Brian Gunter said. “The biggest thing our guys hang their hats on is that defense will keep us in the ball game.”
Brandon Rogers had nine points for CCS, while Alex Mullins had 6.
Cincinnati Christian travels to St. Bernard on Friday.
