The surging Andrew Jackson Volunteers kept pace in the Conference IV-AA boys basketball race with a landmark 48-42 win over Lee Central in the Stallions’ gym on Friday night.
The LC gym had been a house of hoops horror for the Volunteers in seasons past, but AJ was able to post its first win on the Stallions’ floor thanks to a solid team effort.
“This is a great win for us,” AJ coach Dale Reeves said.
The Vols, 10-4, 3-1, took a 13-8 lead after a period of play and held a 22-15 edge at the half. AJ was up 31-26 after three periods.
