Elementary Tournament Enters Final Day

There was nothing like a friendly neighborhood rivalry to spark some interest in an otherwise "ho-hum" type of night Thursday at South Greene High School in the semifinals of the Greene County Elementary Basketball Tournament.

Mosheim's Noah Carson polished off a fast break by banking in a layup with 4.7 seconds left in the game to give the Indians a thrilling 32-29 win over old rival McDonald to advance to tonight's championship round.

Mosheim will play Baileyton for all the marbles at South Greene tonight. The Dragons moved to the title tilt with a 44-21 victory over DeBusk.

The boys' championship will be preceded by the girls' title game, which matches up southside rivals Nolachuckey and DeBusk. Both advanced with ease on Thursday in the semis, with the Lady Blazers coasting to a 52-16 win over West Pines, and the Lady Braves beating McDonald by a 42-17 decision.

The final night of the tourney begins at 4 p.m. today with the girls' consolation, which pits West Pines going against McDonald for third place. That is followed by the boys' consolation with DeBusk and McDonald going to battle. The two championship contests then follow.

An awards ceremony, with team and individual awards presented for the regular season as well as the post-season tournament, will follow the boys' championship game.


With Mosheim up 29-28, McDonald's Austin Anderson hit the front end of a two-shot free throw situation with 10 seconds to go in the game and tie the score.

Anderson missed the second shot, and Julian Lane grabbed the rebound for Mosheim and started a fast break that ended up with Carson streaking ahead of the trailing McDonald defenders. He hit the layup and was fouled in the process to give the Indians, seeded No. 2 in the tournament, a 32-29 lead with 4.7 seconds to go.

McDonald got the ball down the floor but was unable to score and Mosheim prevailed.

Carson finished with 10 points to pace the winners, while Preston Fox and Lane each scored seven points.

McDonald was led by a game-high 17 points from Kyler Clowers.

Mosheim led 12-11 at halftime, but the Hornets went on a 9-0 run in the third quarter to turn a 14-12 deficit into a 21-14 lead. Lucas Bennett hit two buckets during that run.

But Mosheim closed out the quarter strong on a basket by Carson and a 3-pointer by Matthew Smyth that was in the air as the horn sounded to close the gap to 21-19.

After Anderson scored on a baseline jumper for McDonald to give them a 23-19 lead, Mosheim scored six straight points and led 25-23, setting the stage for the fantastic finish.

McDONALD (29): Anderson 5, Kyler Clowers 17, Bennett 5, Roe 0, Burrus 2.

MOSHEIM (32): Fox 7, Lane 7, Sauceman 0, Noah Carson 10, Potter 0, Smyth 6, Ramsey 2.

The talented and experienced Nolachuckey Lady Blazers used a 29-0 run in the second quarter to break away from West Pines and coast to a 52-16 win.

It was 14-4 at the first rest stop before the Blazers turned up the defensive pressure and forced the Panthers into a host of turnovers that were translated into easy baskets.

Taylor Lamb led the way with 16 points while Morgan Williams and Katilynn Franklin had nine apiece. Abby Keys scored five points for West Pines.

The DeBusk Lady Braves began to pull away from McDonald just before intermission and went on to a 42-17 win.

It was 14-7 at the end of one, and McDonald got a pair of buckets from Karsey Hurst to close to 17-11 before DeBusk spurted to an 8-0 run the rest of the period to take a 25-11 halftime advantage.

McDonald had no answer for Braelyn Wykle, who scored 21 points. Hailey Howlett chipped in with nine. Kelsey Ball and Hurst each netted five points for the Lady Hornets.

McDONALD (17): Ball 5, Roe 4, Hurst 5, Julian 0, Williams 1, Vosburgh 2.
