Shooting ills sickening to SF

Shooting ills sickening to SF
One South Fulton team missed the easy shots on Friday.
The other didn’t take enough.
The SF boys fell 74-61 to Bradford with head coach Keith Fraizer citing a sub-par performance on simple shots as part of the reason for the defeat.
Meanwhile, the Devilettes didn’t put up enough shots — with only 28 attempts on the basket — during a 36-28 defeat to B’ford.
Both South Fulton teams return to action Tuesday night at home against Lake County.

Jonathan Avent equaled a career-high with 38 points, but it wasn’t enough to lift the local Red Devils on Friday.
“We had a lot of easy shots and we missed them,” SF boys’ coach Keith Frazier said. “We also didn’t help ourselves out any on the defensive end by giving up a lot of second and third chance scores.”
Aside from Avent, Khiry Lewis had eight points, while Kendall Greer added seven.
South Fulton (2-17, 0-10 in District 14A play) was without point guard Montre Lewis — out for at least a week with a shoulder injury.

Most of the Devilettes were gunshy during Friday’s home defeat.
“I felt like we were a little hesitant to take the open shots tonight,” SF girls’ coach Curt Lee explained. “We had a lot of good looks, but we didn’t take them.
“You can’t expect to win when you take just 28 shots, especially when you turn the ball over 14 or 15 times.”
Taleeah Cross was the pace-sitter for South Fulton (5-14, 1-9 in 14A) with 10 points, five rebounds and four assists.
Fellow freshman Ka-lon Martin wasn’t afraid to carry part of the offensive load with eight points, seven rebounds and two steals.
