Atlanta 97,
Sulphur Bluff 90
    ATLANTA — Justin Goldsmith scored 33 and teammate Tyler Raine added 31 points, but it was not enough as Sulphur Bluff fell, 97-90 in Tuesday boys varsity basketball action.

    Sulphur Bluff took a quick 27-21 lead after one period. But the Bears went into hibernation in the second frame, getting outscored 25-13. Sulphur Bluff responded with 50 points in the second half, but came up short on the scoreboard.
    “I thought the boys played really hard and gave really good effort all four quarters but just could not pull out the W.  We traded leads with Atlanta through out the game but came up short in the end,” said Marshall Moore, Sulphur Bluff head boys basketball coach. “We missed too many easy baskets close and missed too many free throws which kept us from eventually beating a very athletic team.  Our boys know that the difference in close ball games will probably be free throws and we did not capitalize on them in the fourth quarter going 4 for 12 in the last quarter.  Our team is slowly getting better each game and that's all you can ask for in the early part of your season.”

    In addition to Crouch's 10 rebounds, freshman Shyenne Mitchell added nine and Kelsey Buchanan had eight.
    North Hopkins led 8-2 after the first quarter and stretched the lead to 22-10 at intermission.

Berry also did a great job running our team in the second half….he definitely took control of the game.
