COMMERCE — Patrick Covington 21 points, 12 rebounds as Miller Grove used the double-double to defeated Fannindel here Friday in the Class 1A boys area basketball playoffs.
    Covington shot 71 percent for the night, the post player made 10 of 14 shots and 1 of 2 free throws.

    Logan Miller added 16 points, making 50 percent of his field goals.
    Other scorers were: Aaron Smith with nine, Nathan George three and Brennan Greene with two points.
    The Hornets fell behind 9-8 after one period. Then in the second quarter their offense went into hyperdrive scoring 22 while the Falcons managed only nine. Miller Grove outscored Fannindel 20-16 in the final two quarters to nail down the win.
    “I was not very happy with our offensive performance. We did not do a good job of running our man stuff which is usually are strong suit. I was very happy with our defensive performance. The officials called the game tight which got us in a little foul trouble. It is always hard to get your first playoff win. Hopefully we got the nervousness out. We will play Bellevue Tuesday at 7 p.m. We don’t have a location set yet,” said Gary Billingsley, Miller Grove basketball coach.
