Jackets finish strong for split

BUFORD – Buford and rival Andrew Jackson were locked in a tight hardwood battle, but then Jackets ignited in an impressive finish for a 53-40 basketball win over the Volunteers at BHS on Tuesday night.

The Jackets’ 13-point win gave Buford a split of the varsity twin bill in the first of two hoops meetings on the 2017-18 Region IV-AA basketball season.

The Lady Vols, on the other hand, held off the surging Lady Jackets for a tough 45-42 win over the Buford girls.
