Placeholder Image
It was hard to tell White County came limping into Tuesday night’s district matchup against Warren County on a two-game losing skid.The Pioneers played at full tilt and gave an inspired effort, but it wasn’t enough to capture a win on the road as White County earned a 76-60 win in Sparta.Sloppy passing and an abundance of turnovers ultimately doomed the Pioneers, even though they played with great intensity. Jacob Reagan led the way with a team-high 14 points and Kendall Rutledge added nine.White County was able to wear down the Pioneers and force turnover after turnover with an active half-court trap. The Warriors employed an interesting strategy with their tall, lanky defenders up top, and point guard Devon Davidson roaming the paint.The game plan worked as the Pioneers were unable to pass over the taller defenders and either threw the ball out of bounds or to White County players.Despite Warren County’s struggles, the game was still in reach at the half as the Warriors led 36-27.
