Man senior Jeremiah Harless broke a single-game school record with 45 rebounds as the Hillbillies defeated Parkersburg Catholic 101-42 Saturday evening at Parkersburg Catholic High School.

Jackson Tackett previously held the record for most rebounds in a game with 32. Tackett, who transferred to Logan before the start of this season, set the mark April 10, 2021, at Van.

In addition to his 45 rebounds, Harless scored a career-high 26 points, dished out seven assists, blocked four shots and had one steal. Caleb Blevins led Man with 29 points, Aiden Martin added 14, Zayden Sherod had 11 off the bench and Trey Brown 10 for the Hillbillies.

It was the second consecutive double-double for Harless, who scored 12 points and hauled down 14 rebounds in a 106-48 victory over Richwood in the New River CTC Invitational at the Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center on Wednesday night.

Man (7-2) dominated Parkersburg Catholic (0-8) from the opening tip scoring the game’s first 20 points and led 20-2 after one quarter. The Hillbillies led by 21 at halftime and outscored the Crusaders 58-20 in the second half.

For the third consecutive game, Man scored 30 or more points in one quarter. The Hillbillies scored 39 points in the second quarter of a 90-36 victory at Tolsia on Monday night and scored 35 first quarter points in the win over Richwood Wednesday night.

It is the first time in recent memory, and it is believed to be the first time in school history that Man has scored 100-points-or-more in consecutive contests.

Blake Lewis led Parkersburg Catholic with 17 points and Carson McMinn scored 10 off the bench for the Crusaders, who will host Class AA No. 3 Williamstown Wednesday night in search of its first victory this season.

Man, ranked third in Class A, will host Liberty (Raleigh) Thursday night at the Man Memorial Fieldhouse.
