Panama City, FL-- We start with some high school basketball action and a matchup of two of this area's better boy's teams. Niceville, a 5-A region champ last year, coming east to take on the Rutherford Rams, who made it to the 4-A state final last year. Eagles 4-2 coming in, Rams 4 and oh, let's get to the highlights.
Pick it up second quarter, the Rams with a 12 point lead just before the half, but the Eagles rallying, first it's inside to AJ Tillman who lays it in, then on the break, good ball movement, winds up in the hands of Shane Horton who hits the short jumper, that Rams lead just 3 at the half, 29-26.
Third quarter, the Rams coming back to life, they're working the break, ahead to Williamson who goes for the alley oop, John Wade makes it work.
Then it's Tony Mixon looking for somebody to pass it to, they leave him alone, so he shoots and scores....then it's Williamson in the corner for another three, Rutherford regains control and keeps it
¶the rest of the way, getting a ten point win, 64-54. Wade with 25 points, 18 rebounds. Rams now five and oh, Eagles 4-3.
