Dadeville nips Tigers in heartbreaker

Staff Report

Tallassee lost a tight area game at Dadeville last Tuesday, 52-51. The Tigers lost a nine-point third quarter lead in the defeat.

"Our guys are playing hard, but we just have to make better decisions with the ball and execute on offense and defense," THS head coach Keiven Mixson said. "We are out of position some on offense and defense which hurts us. The tough thing about basketball is if four guys are in position and one is not it can affect the entire play in a negative way.

"We got careless with the ball and were out rebounded on the glass. Our points of emphasis for each game is to win the rebounding battle and value the possession of the ball. We are very close to being a really good team, but we have to get better at boxing out and we have to take care of the ball better."

Travon Skipper had 16 points and Tyrek Turner scored 10. Dadeville was led by P.J. Eason with 17 points.
