Four Watson Chapel boys basketball players each scored in double figures, and one of them had quite the night rebounding the ball.

Antwon Emsweller totaled 17 rebounds to go with 17 points, helping the Wildcats earn a 59-39 win at Hamburg on Tuesday night. The victory was the second in a row for the Wildcats (4-5, 3-2 in Conference 4A-8).

Khamani Cooper scored 19 points to lead Watson Chapel. Kamron Wilkins added 11 and Jaylon Ento had 10 in the victory.
