Smith Co. no match for Lions
By TONY STINNETT, Courier Sports Editor
Seniors Cory Henley and Tanner Larson were too much of an inside-outside attack for Smith County to handle in District 8-AA action.
The seniorssparked the Lions to an easy 72-39 win against Smith County at Robert A. Harris Gym Tuesday (Dec. 11).
Cannon County (9-1, 3-0) led 11-9 after the first quarter but used a 19-8 run in the second frame to go on top 30-17 and never look back.
The Lions smothering defense continued to be a strong suit, limiting the opposition to below 40 points.
The balanced scoring attack also saw Tyler King score five, Jacob Nave four and eight rebounds, Austin Martin four, Bo Bryson three, Tommy Mitchell two and Marshall McReynolds two.
