“We have a lot to work on, but I think we did good,” senior Myles Cowart, 24, said. “I think we paced ourselves and passed the ball to the open man.” Cowart scored 8 points throughout the game.

Jefferson scored the first point. Ken Montgomery, 50, shot a three-pointer for Hillsborough’s first score. Montgomery scored another before the second quarter.

By the end of first quarter, Hillsborough was ahead by 4 points with a score of 12-8.

Roundtree dunked the ball once by the end of the game and Terriers ended with a score of 61.

Freshman Corey Reynolds, who played on Junior varsity, travels to every game and records the scores to “be part of this special team because [he] think[s] they can go a long way with the talent they have.”  

As for the playoffs next week, Austin believes the team will perform well. “If we come as a team, contribute and stay focused, I think we’ll be ready to play,” he said.
