TAD drops a pair to Sevier
  The old saying, "the bigger they are, the harder they fall," was not the case last night in Kingsport as T.A. Dugger dropped a pair of games to John Sevier.
  Fourth quarter runs late in the game proved to be the difference in both contests.
  In eighth grade action, Sevier took advantage of some terrible free throw shooting to earn a 47-31 win over the Cyclones.
  TAD shot a dismal 6-of-23 from the foul line which proved to be the difference in the game.
  The Indians raced to a 15-7 lead after one and increased the advantage to 25-14 at the half. A last-second three by Zach Montgomery at the buzzer appeared to spark the Jr. 'Clones.
  The Cyclones cut Sevier's lead to seven at the 5:31 mark, but a 11-1 run in the final three minutes proved to be the difference in the contest as Sevier had the size advantage with 6'4" center John Edwards and 6'1" forward Michael Willis controlling the boards.
  Julian Smith paced the Cyclones with 10 points, followed by Kyle Wash and Zach Montgomery with five each. Jared Lyons and Vic Deloach added four to the cause.
  Smith had nine rebounds while Deloach collected eight to pace the Cyclone rebounding department.
  Dustin McConnell tossed in 20 points for the Indians while Edwards and Willis tallied eight each.
  "We've got to shoot better at the foul line," stated Cyclone head coach James Jacobs. "It's hard to win games when you miss as many as we did tonight."
  7th Grade
  John Sevier 57
  T.A. Dugger 36
  TAD sliced a 16-point advantage down to eight at the start of the fourth quarter, but Sevier outscored TAD 13-1 over the final three minutes to win going away.
  The one-two punch of Darius Davis and David Geno proved to the too much for the Jr. 'Clones scoring 21 and 18 points respectively.
  Cody Forbes was the only Cyclone in double figures with 11 while Ryan Thomas accounted for eight. Drew Chambers, Daniel Bowers and Daniel Moore contributed four each.
  Chambers, Moore and Forbes paced the rebounding department with five apiece.
  "We going to have to get in better condition," stated Cyclone head coach Eric Wampler. "We're losing too many game in the fourth quarter."
  TAD plays at Church Hill on Thursday.
