Transylvania freshman Ethan Rowe, a Pikeville High School graduate, scored a career-high 23 points, but the Pioneers lost 105-97 to Thomas More at Crestview Hills.
Transylvania put a lot of points on the board. Three other players reached double figures, too.
"We definitely scored enough points to win the game," said Transylvania Coach Brian Lane said. "But we must find a way to be more consistent on the defensive end. We have to stay out of foul trouble to keep opponents off the foul line. It hurt us today."
Freshmen Logan Wade (Louisville Christian) and Mason Monroe (Pendleton County) scored 19 and 18 points, respectively, and sophomore Parker Stansberry (Dixie Heights) had 14.
