Tuscumbia Comes Up Short
Bell City (28-4) took control late in the game thanks in part to the dominant presence of junior center William Bogan. Bogan, a 6'10" center who has already committed to play in college for the Memphis Tigers, scored 19 points and pulled down 14 boards.
Depth also contributed to Tuscumbia's demise as four of the Lions' starters played the entire game. Zack Martin was the only Lion starter to catch a slight breather while staying on the hardwood for 25 minutes. Logan Patterson was the sole Lion reserve to see any playing time with one rebound in seven minutes of play. Meanwhile, Bell City featured an eight-man rotation with only one starter playing the full 32 minutes.
Bell City's Jeff Liggins led all scorers with 23 points on 10-17 shooting. The Tuscumbia Lions' top offensive performer was James Cox with 18 points.
