The Varsity Boys Basketball team won a critical Region 6-AAAAA contest on the road Tuesday, January 9, 2018.
In what was their best defensive effort of the year, the Raiders won their fifth consecutive game by defeating Decatur 57-40. Consistent harrassment and pressure stymied the Bulldogs -- allowing them to score a mere 13 points in the entire first half. As the second half began, Senior Christian Sutton found the hot hand and exploded for ten points. By the time the fourth quarter started, the Raiders were ahead by 27 points. In a game marked by good ball movement and strong rebounding, eight players contributed to the scoring: Sutton led with 15 points while Junior Jalen Edwards and Senior Rudy Fitzgibbons notched 12 points each; Senior Julian Walker and Sophomore Cody Kaplan each scored 6 points.
Next on the schedule, the Raiders play on the road vs. Banneker Friday, January 12
