LOCUST GROVE 84, HILLDALE 80 — Hornets coach Scott Hensley said his team wasn’t flat. It might have played a little tougher, maybe had more hands up at times, but it likely wouldn’t have made much difference with the first quarter Locust Grove had, scoring 33 points off six 3s. They had nine in the first half.
It was 33-20 after one and 50-37 at half.
Thus, the Hornets fell to 9-3 on the heels of a Bedouin Shrine Classic. They rallied with an 18-9 rally in the third to get back in the game, but it wasn’t enough.
“They were hot. It was nuts. It was a sight,” Hensley said. “Credit to them. But I was proud of the way we fought back.”
T.J. Maxwell and Brayson Lawson shared co-game high honors with 21 points.
