LHS visits 17-0 SCHS Friday
Still smarting from Tuesday's 71-69 double overtime home loss to undefeated White County, Jim McDowell's LHS basketball team will take on another undefeated squad Friday night at District 9-AAA rival Gallatin's Station Camp.
The Blue Devils slipped to 13-2 on the season after Tuesday's setback at Campbell Brandon Gym, despite 22 points from senior Kobe Neuble.
The Warriors overcame a red-hot Lebanon start that saw the home team take a 36-18 lead into intermission.
"We knew the storm was coming," McDowell said as White County drilled seven 3-pointers in the third quarter. "I thought we kept our wits about us and continued to battle. They wound up making a play at the end of the second overtime."
Jacob Fresh led White County (14-0) with 22 points as the visitors knocked down 18 3-pointers and finished 18-of-21 at the line.
Cameron Oliver had 14 for LHS while Eddie Jackson and Noah Mulaski each had 12.
LHS was 6-of-9 at the charity stripe.
Friday's opponent, Station Camp, improved to 17-0 on the season following Tuesday's 55-33 victory at Father Ryan.
The Bison currently stand 3-0 in District 9-AAA with wins over Beech, Portland and Hendersonville.
