The Dibrell Wildcats held a slim lead, 17-15, over the Morrison Eagles at the half in Saturday night’s 5-6 grade boys preseason basketball championship.It looked to be anybody’s game. That’s when Dibrell started really pressuring the ball, forcing turnovers and pulling away for a 47-27 victory in the championship.“We played sloppy the first half,” said Dibrell head coach Darek Elrod. “We were too relaxed so we played man to man and were about 50/50 on our opportunities.”Winning MVP for his game-high, 18-point total, Nathan Elrod was also instrumental in many of the turnovers which cost Morrison during the second half.
