Here is a look at Tuesday night’s high school basketball action.
In Clinton, the Lady Dragons built a 24-point halftime lead, then blew that large lead even more wide open in the third quarter, as they cruised to a 73-33 District win. The Lady Dragons (13-8, 6-3 D3AAA) led 41-17 at halftime, then Sarah Burton scored 18 of her game-high 33 points in the third quarter as the lead grew to 40 at 65-25. Naiyah Sanders notched 20 points and Jasmine Moore was hard to handle inside, as she put up 11 points in the win.
The Dragon boys got off to a hot shooting start, nailing seven three-pointers in the first quarter, built a comfortable lead, and held on to it as they beat Karns, 69-41. Jackson Garner’s game-high 18 included 14 in the first quarter, fueled by four three-point jumpers. Trace Wandell was outstanding on both ends of the floor, adding 16 points for CHS (9-10, 7-2), and both Evan Winchester and Lane Harrison scored 12 for Clinton.
In other District 3AAA action, Central’s girls poured it on Anderson County, trouncing the Lady Mavs, 61-17, and the Bobcat boys pulled off the sweep by beating Anderson County, 58-42.
