GRAY — First it was Cherokee, then it was Science Hill. Tuesday night, Daniel Boone became the latest Class AAA team to draw Elizabethton’s “A-game.”
Riding 24 points from Tyler Nichols, 22 from Zeke Clark and an improved bench outing, the Cyclones gained a surge of momentum with an effort-driven 69-47 win in the Trailblazer Classic high school nightcap at Snyder Gymnasium.
“I think we were missing that the last few games,” said Elizabethton coach Lucas Honeycutt. “The effort was great tonight. The kids went out and played hard, they executed and played hard enough to where we could sub a bunch of kids in and out and that’s what’s enjoyable.
