Libbey was just holding its own with Bowsher last night after a 14-10 first quarter of a City League game.
But the league-leading Cowboys (9-0) turned up the heat in a 24-8 second quarter with a press that ultimately led to a 76-54 victory.
Ronnell Isom led the way with 18 points and Ernie Reed and Quinton Mitchell each added a dozen for 11-5 Libbey.
Marquel Jefferson had 20 for the Rebels and Derrick Cruse contributed 11.
Mike Matthews tallied 23 points to lead five Indians in double scoring figures.
Mike Lucas, Sean Cope, Darrion Griffin and King Wilson added 14, 13, 12 and 10 points, respectively, for Waite (4-13, 2-7), which scored 12 of the game's first 14 points.
Alex Malone scored 22, Mike Fench had 15 and O'Dante Harris 11 for the Polar Bears (2-15, 0-9), who climbed back into the game before a technical foul and subsequent possession in the third quarter enabled Waite to pull away again.
