The 8th grade Rebels closed out the regular season tonight with a win and pushed their record to 16-2. The boys started strong with good ball pressure on defense; resulting in 18 steals. On offense, the Rebels moved the ball well and executed the office efficiently. Nathan Hurt led the team with 13 points. Landon Wells and Cale Donoho followed that with 12 of their own, and Kaydin Duvall added 9.
The boys also won the B game 40-31. The Rebels led for most of the game, until a late 3rd quarter/early 4th quarter run by Perry Central. The Rebels had to settle down and play from behind for a little while before eventually pulling ahead for good late in the game. Cayden Dickinson hit a buzzer beating 3 pointer to close out the comeback!! The Rebels were led in scoring by William and Trevor Shoulders who each scored 9 points. Jackson Lashley added 8 and Cayden Dickinson had 3.
The boys will begin PAC tournament play on Monday night with a road game at Ft. Branch. The 8th grade boys will play first at 5:30 and the 8th grade girls will play after the boys game.
