SCHS Indians defeat Elbert County, Lady Indians fall to Lady Razorbacks of Walhalla in high school basketball

It’s hard to beat any basketball team twice in the same month, but the Stephens County Indians managed to do just that Tuesday night.  Four players shot in double-figures as the Indians beat the Elbert County Blue Devils 63-58 in the opening round of the Border Wars Holiday Basketball Tournament.   Aaron Scott led the Indians with 16 points.  Javin Gordon had 14, Corey Richie had 11 points and Moochie Morrison had 10.

It was the second time in December that the Indians had prevailed over Elbert County.  Back on December 14th, Cornelius Curry hit a last second shot to give the Indians a 68-67 win at the Inferno.

Stephens County is now 2-10 while Elbert County drops to 2-11

The Lady Indians made a valiant effort to come up with their first win of the season, but fell short.  The Lady Razorbacks of Walhalla pulled out a 49-43 victory over Stephens County in the 6PM game. My’Angel Carter led all scorers with 19 points while Makiya Knox chipped in with 10. The Lady Indians led several times in the second half but the lead would not hold

The Lady Indians are now 0-12 while the Walhalla girls are 9-4.

Habersham Central, co-hosts of the Border Wars Tournament, won both of their games in the afternoon.  The Habersham Central girls beat the T.L. Hanna girls 65-34 and the Habersham boys defeated the West Oak boys 74-39.
