GRAY—On a night where the shots were not falling, Hampton head coach Dewayne Humphrey had to look at the bright side.
“An ugly win is better than a pretty loss,” Humphrey said following the Jr. Bulldogs’ 31-19 victory over Morristown West feeder West View in the opening round of the prestigious
Trailblazer Invitational Middle School Basketball Tournament at Daniel Boone High School.
And while the bucket had a lid on it for Hampton, the defensive effort by the Bulldogs was one that Humphrey could take considering the poor shooting.
“We have said it for years that an ugly win is better than a pretty loss any day,” he said. “We’ll take it.”
