Tuesday night, regular season high school basketball play resumed after the Winter Break, and here is an update on how some area teams fared.
Powell girls 41, Clinton 28: After a sluggish start by both teams, Powell woke up first in the second quarter and built a large lead that they were able to protect down the stretch. Clinton fell to 2-16 and 1-5 in District 3-AAA despite 14 points and 14 rebounds from Kelley Wandell and five points and 10 boards from fellow senior Katie Starnes.
Powell boys 57, Clinton 54: The Dragons’ fourth-quarter rally came up short on the road, and they fell to 11-6 and 2-4 in District 3-AAA. Tyler Thackerson and J’Quan Thomas each tallied 13 points to lead Clinton, which was once again victimized by poor free-throw shooting.
Campbell County girls 60, Anderson County 28: Anderson County fell to 5-12, 3-3 in District 3-AAA despite 10 points from Brooklin McCoy.
Campbell County boys 44, Anderson County 39: Riley Sexton’s 13 points were not enough for Anderson County (10-8) on the road.
The Oak Ridge boys and girls will play Campbell County on Tuesday, January 12. The girls’ game starts at 6 p.m., and the boys starts at 7:30. Before then, Oak Ridge will play another district game at home against Halls on Thursday, January 7.
