High school basketball regular season resumes

Tuesday night, regular season high school basketball play resumed after the Winter Break and here is how some of your 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, 1-5 in D3AAA 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 D3AAA. 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: AC fell to 5-12, 3-3 in D3AAA despiute 10 points from Brooklin McCoy.
Campbell County boys 44 Anderson County 39: Riley Sexton’s 13 points were not enough for AC (10-8) on the road.
Oak Ridge girls 60 Karns 26: Mykia Dowdell led OR with 16 points.
Oak Ridge boys 72 Karns 68: The Wildcats remained unbeaten in District play as they survived a late beaver rally, thanks in part to Tee Higgins’ 18 points.
