Wayne dropped to 4-14, 0-9.

The Wildcats swept the season series with the Pioneers, also winning 64-42 on Jan. 3 at home.

Dino Noe led Logan with an 18-point game. David Early had 16, while Will Akers had eight and T.J. Mullins and Braxton Goff tossed in six points each. Terrance Chapman had four and Jamal Minter, Nate White and Joseph Lowe had two each.

Devin Hall paced Wayne with 18 points.

The Wildcats led 17-7 after one quarter, 34-18 at the half and 49-34 after three. A 14-11 fourth by the Cats then set the final score.

Logan is scheduled to return to action with Friday night’s showdown at No. 4-ranked and county rival Chapmanville Regional (15-4). The Tigers beat Logan, 67-60, in the previous meeting this season.
