ASHVILLE – Caden Johnson scored 23 points and Nathan Barnwell and John Broom both scored five points in overtime as Jacksonville edged Ragland 78-71 to win the Coy Smith Thanksgiving Tournament.

Both Barnwell and Broom had back-to-back three-point plays in the overtime run, then Donavon McCain finished off a steal with a monster dunk for the exclamation point.

The Golden Eagles are playing with largely a junior varsity contingent as many of their varsity players are still involved in the school’s bid for a state football championship.
 
McCain had 17 points, Broom finished with 15 and Cam Johnson added 11. Ragland’s Sloan Phillips led all scorers with 25 points.

Heritage Holiday Classic
FAIRFIELD –
After knocking off a team that eliminated them in the regionals two straight years in the opening round of the Heritage Holiday Classic, the Yellow Jackets fell to the team that knocked them out of the playoffs last year, losing to Huffman 37-26.

The Jackets led 17-14 at the half, then turned it over on their first four possessions of the third quarter, fell behind 30-21 and never recovered. The 26 points were the fewest they had scored in a game since Parker held them to 25 in the 2017 Northeast Regional finals.

“It was a heck of a game, a physical game,” Oxford coach Joel VanMeter said. “Both teams really guarded. We just didn’t make shots and they hurt us on the offensive glass.”
