BOONE, N.C. — “Blackout Night” at Lentz Eggers Gym brought arguably the best performance of the still young 2022-23 season for Watauga’s men’s basketball team. It started out promising enough when Hibriten was charged with a technical foul before the game even started — and the Pioneers kept pushing to a resounding, 70-63 finish.
