With all the heat from the full-court press going on Monday night at Bobby Ray’s gym, it must have been a barn burner and it was. With just minutes remaining in game play, the score tied 24-24, Centertown Warrior Tyler Adams shot from the corner for 2 points, 26-24. Then an Ashton Griffith pass to Baler Melton added 2 more, 28-24, Centertown. The final point was from the line as the Stars played aggressive ball and fouled one last time. With the win, Centertown’s 5-6 grade boys basketball team remains undefeated so far this year.
“It was a good game,” said Bobby Ray head coach Travis Martin, “one that’s really tough on coaches.”
Both teams used a full-court press during the entire game, making the action fast and furious.
The only time it stopped was for foul shots with Bobby Ray drawing 23 shots from the line compared to 5 for Centertown. The Stars failed to capitalize on the opportunities however, only hitting for 3 points as the Warriors were good for 2-of-5.
