Farragut High School
Oak Ridge High School
Oak Ridge Wildcats and the Farragut Admirals are underway. Oak Ridge facing an offense unfamiliar to them. Farragut just passing the ball around, open shots but Admirals not looking to shoot, trying to get the Wildcats in foul trouble. Coach Green with a technical within the first 3 minutes of the game. Time out, Coach Green has an answer to the Farragut offense and starts a full court press. End of the first quarter, Oak Ridge 8 – Farragut Admirals 7.
Oak Ridge still cannot get into a rhythm and the score is uncharacteristic of an Oak Ridge game. EJ Bush has 6 points, 4 – Geevantay Gee, 3 – Javien Johnson and Tee Higgins with 2 for the first half. End of the first half with Oak Ridge trailing Farragut 15-17.
Still a low scoring game by both teams, Farragut not willing to shoot, but, EJ Jones has been the answer for the third quarter with 9 points. End of the third quarter, Oak Ridge 28 – Farragut 24.
Oak Ridge held to 39 points in the game, this is the least amount of points that the Wildcats have scored all season. Hard game to watch, hard game to be playing, even harder to coach. Oak Ridge wins the Region 2 – AAA quarter finals 39 – 30. EJ Bush with 15 points and 3 rebounds to lead the team, followed by Tee Higgins with 9 points and 3 rebounds.
Oak Ridge will host the Powell Panthers on Tuesday, March 1 at 7:30 PM at the Wildcat Arena.
