Morrison starts strong in Masonic tourney
Morrison Eagle Kason Holder drives for some of this 25-point, game-high total Monday in the opening round of the Masonic Tournament. The Eagles have a shot at the championship with their win.
If there was a solid reason not to miss opening day at the Masonic Lodge Christmas Tournament at the Dalt on Monday, it would be the matchup between Rhea Middle and the Morrison Eagles.Both teams had the athleticism and coaching to make for a compelling and engaging contest to both play in and watch from the fan side of the house.Virtually tied after the first half, 25-24, it was a matter of who would blink first … it wasn’t Morrison as adjustments during the contest and maximum use of miscues by Rhea let the Eagles fly away with the win, 48-35.“It was a well-played game by both teams,” said Morrison head coach Kyle Cannon. “They were a very good team and well coached. We played solid defense and made some adjustments at halftime to try and slow down their outside shot.
