YANTIS — Fans that braved the cold January temperatures were warmed with basketball action excitement at Yantis Friday night as both varsity games kept fans on their feet in support of their home teams.

The Yantis Owls gave the homecoming crowd a 72-56 victory with four of the players achieving double-digit scoring against the visiting Savoy squad.

The two opposing boys teams took to the court after a special dedication to war veteran James Franklin Starrett. Starrett received his lost ribbons for his military service by local Yantis resident Liz Thompson.
