After a close district loss at West earlier this month, the Oak Ridge Wildcats beat the Rebels by 17 points, 55-38, in a rematch at home on Friday.
The loss at West earlier this month, on January 10, was the only district loss of the season for the Oak Ridge boys.
The Wildcats were led in the win over the Rebels on Friday by Grayson Strader, Ray’Quan Watson, and Kaden Brightharp, who each had 11 points, according to Prepradio.com broadcaster David Clary.
Oak Ridge is tied with Karns for best record in District 3-4A, where both teams are 7-1. However, the Wildcats have a win over the Beavers, a narrow 67-64 victory at Karns on January 13.
The two teams will meet again next week, this time at Wildcat Arena. That game will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
After playing Karns at home on Tuesday, the boys’ final district game will be at Campbell County (0-8 in the district) at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
After that, the Wildcats, who are 18-3 overall, will wrap up the regular season with a home game against Alcoa on Monday, February 6; a game at Clinton on Thursday, February 9; and a final game at Fulton on Saturday, February 11.
