Elizabethton couldn’t solve David Casaday. East corralled Zeke Clark.
As a result, the Cyclones were unable to make lighting strike twice.
Behind tournament MVP Casaday’s 28 points, including six three-point makes, Sullivan East took its third Region 1-AA title in the last four years with a 55-47 victory over the host Cyclones Thursday at Treadway Gymnasium.
Jonathan King added eight points and 16 rebounds for the Patriots, which held Elizabethton’s District 1-AA MVP point guard Clark to just four points and flustered the Cyclone offense early behind guard Jordan James.
