Nevertheless, the two teams maintained composure and competed to the end.
In the end, the Eagles looked like a team coming off back-toback games.

After scoring 20 points against Franklin County on Tuesday, Alcovy held Robinson to just nine. Latimore led the way with 13 points for Eastside.
On the flip side, Miller had another solid all-around game, recording 13 points and 10 rebounds while blocking four shots and recording three steals.
“He is definitely going to be a valuable weapon for us as the season goes on,” Brown said of Miller. “We haven’t had a post presence in the three years that we’ve been here so it has taken some time to get used to passing him the ball inside and they are starting to understand that we are going to need more of that later on.”
