Congratulations are in order to the J.R. Tucker Tigers for winning the 2014 Southerner Classic at Lee-Davis High School Saturday night, holding off a very determined Banner Christian squad 78-73 for the title. Paul Flowers and Chase McPherson both were named to the All-Tournament Team for their work in improving Tucker's record to 6-4.
Deep Run needed a shot at the horn to force overtime, and got it, then parlayed the momentum to a 66-63 victory over Mountain View Saturday night to improve their overall record to 9-1.
The Wildcats return to the court for a big game at 6-4 Glen Allen this Friday night, while J.R. Tucker must welcome in Top 10 team Thomas Jefferson Tuesday night as teams return to regular season schedules following the holiday break. Tip-off at Tucker is at 7:30pm tomorrow.
