Rawls' 19 Points Lead Hamilton Heights To 62-50 Victory

Sunday, January 14, 2018

Hamilton Heights didn’t play the opponent originally scheduled, but came up with a win Sunday in the Music City Classic in Nashville.

The Hawks (12-4) defeated Our Savior New American, 62-50, behind Jordan Rawls’ game-high 19 points, including hitting three of the team’s eight 3-point shots.

Inclement weather forced a schedule change, prompting the Hawks to play OSNA.

They were originally scheduled to play Wesleyan Christian (North Carolina).

Uros Plavsic finished with a double-double, scoring 11 points and grabbing 13 rebounds as the Hawks stretched a 31-28 lead to the final 12-point margin provided by Sam Ruzhentsev’s driving layup with six seconds left. Ruzhentsev scored 11 points. Wheza Panzo contributed eight rebounds.

Fousseni Drame led OSNA, out of New York, with 17 points.

Note: The Hawks’ Kevaughn Ellis has made a verbal commitment to UNC-Asheville.

Voting Lines Are Too Long - And Response

I’ve tried three times this week to vote at the Collegedale early voting place.

I realize that it is easy for someone like me to criticize the ones running the election, but I feel criticism is deserved in this case. If they cared ... (click for more)
