warrior. I’ve coached him for four years. He’s a good player. We’ve just to keep him in the game. Other than that he’s ready to go.”
Farr finished with 15 points, including a pair of 3-pointers in the fourth quarter. Guy finished with 13 points, including nine in the fourth quarter. Copper scored 10 points.
“Jaedon plays big,” Coach Hynson said. “He’s got those long arms and he’s swatting stuff out of there. He came up big with a couple blocked shots and he made some free throws at the end of the game too.”
Hynson led the Lions with 14 points.
The Lions, who were the defending region champions, lost all five starters to graduation off last season’s team.
“I knew we were going to be young in key positions this year. I knew we were going to have some growing pains,” Becraft said. “We didn’t have as strong a supporting cast as we had last year. We lost all our starters plus our sixth man. But the guys that came back, this year’s seniors stepped up. They did a nice job.
“We didn’t lose to anybody we should have beat, but we didn’t get that one victory against a team that we shouldn’t have beat, and we almost got it tonight,” Becraft added.
