South Fulton was outmatched against the 10-man deep Falcons on Tuesday evening.
“They’re big, fast and physical,” Red Devils’ coach Keith Frazier said. “We played hard, but we couldn’t keep up with them.
“We didn’t play any man defense all night. We only played zone because we couldn’t cover them 1-on-1.”
Lake County was ahead 16-8 after one quarter and 39-18 at halfime.
The Falcons, who led by as many as 25 points, held a 57-36 advantage with eight minutes remaining.
According to Frazier, LC mentor Jimmy Whitby pulled most of his starters during the fourth quarter.
“He’s got a lot of depth,” Frazier said of Whitby’s Falcon squad.
Jonathan Avent and Khiry Lewis shared the spot atop the SF scorebook with 12 points apiece.
Alex Gallien and Tevaris James each were a basket short of twin figures for the Redmen.
Lake County had Rafael Tyler (12 points) as its lone player in double digits.
South Fulton point guard Montre Lewis (shoulder) did not play.
Lewis is to be re-evaluated Thursday.

The South Fulton girls shot respectable, according to head coach Curt Lee, but the county locals didn’t keep LC from the hoop enough on Tuesday.
“I thought we shot pretty well, but we didn’t stop them from scoring enough,” Lee said. “They scored 20 points on us in three different quarters and shot well. It looks like they’re playing pretty good right now.”
Paxton Sisson accounted for a team-best 14 points for SF, while both Ka-lon Martin and Taleeah Cross came through with 11 points each.
Martin also pulled down eight rebounds, while Cross had five caroms, three assists and three steals.
South Fulton trailed 15-12 after one quarter and 40-25 at halftime.
The Lady Falcons were up 62-37 with three periods complete.
