|Both of South Fulton’s basketball teams fell at Westview in a TSSAA Hall of Champions twinbill on Tuesday evening. |
But who’s counting?
The Devilettes fell 70-32, while their male counterparts were 63-29 losers in a twinbill that the team has chosen to count as a scrimmage rather than an official game.
Teams that take part in Hall of Champions games can count the games in their overall record if they wish.
However, they also have the option of not recognizing the games as official despite the fact that the games are officiated by TSSAA referees and admission is charged to spectators.
The regular season gets under way for South Fulton on Monday when they travel to McKenzie.
Westview 70, SF 32 (G)
The Lady Chargers were ahead 18-9 after one quarter, 36-17 at halftime and 56-25 with three quarters complete on Tuesday evening.
Maeghan Eaves was the top performer for the Devilettes as she pitched in nine points during the defeat.
Otherwise, Paxton Sisson contributed six points and she brought down three rebounds, while seniors Brooke Kane and Lauren Dowdy each contributed five points.
SF girls’ coach Curt Lee stated that his team “played hard but did not do a good job of protecting the basket.”
“For this team to be successful, we can’t allow so many lay-ups and second-chance points at the basket,” Lee said.
Westview 63, SF 29 (B)
The Red Devils kept up with Westview through a quarter and a half, according to head coach Keith Frazier, before the breakneck pace of the Weakley Countians put the county locals away.
By contrast, SF trailed 14-9 after one quarter, but by halftime the Obion Countians were down 35-16 in Martin.
“We hung with them through the first quarter and part of the second,” Frazier said. “Then, they pressured us and run us to death.”
Jonathan Avent totaled a team-high 16 points and four rebounds for South Fulton.
Meanwhile, Montre Lewis pitched in seven points. On the boards, George Garmon brought down four caroms and Alex Gallien and Hunter Allen each had three rebounds.
All totaled, SF shot 11-of-36 from the field and a dismal 5-for-17 from the free throw line.
The Red Devils also did not aid their cause with 22 turnovers.
