Sheeran also had five steals and four assists, while junior guard Kelton Ford added 19 points, seven rebounds and five steals. Senior guard Kyle Meredith chipped in with 10 points and senior forward Jonathon Firquin and junior guard Gabe Shirley each scored eight.
LaRue County (4-0 overall, 1-0 district) led wire-to-wire, and began pulling away after a close first quarter.
Hart County (2-2, 2-1) remained within striking distance in the first period, but the Hawks outscored the Raiders, 26-11 in the second to take control.
It was a good thing LaRue County had a comfortable halftime margin because the Hawks came out of the break and struggled to get anything going. LaRue County didn't score until Meredith converted a three-point play with 3:46 left in the third.
Hart County had pulled within 44-30, but could get no closer after Meredith's three-point play. The Hawks led 62-38 going to the fourth quarter.
