Smothering defense led to offensive opportunities for the Carroll County Middle School seventh and eighth grade girls’ basketball teams. Both teams defeated their Henry County counterparts at home on Tuesday, Nov. 15.
The seventh graders forced numerous turnovers with their defensive pressure, even after calling off the full-court press in the second half, and won 33-7.
Tied 5-5 after the first quarter, the eighth graders jump-started their offense and kept the Lady Wildcats at bay, winning 31-24.
The Carroll County Middle School eighth grade boys’ basketball team fell behind early in the first half and were not able to catch up to the offensive fire power of the Owen County Rebels. The team lost 44-20 Thursday at home.
“Owen County might be the best team on our schedule,” head coach Jay Jones said. “They’re very talented. They’ve got all the right pieces.”
