JONESBOROUGH — After squandering a nine-point lead, Unicoi County was in full scramble mode on its final possession during Tuesday’s Hardee’s Classic basketball matchup against Sullivan South.


Trailing by a point, the Blue Devils were in the midst of a possession that seemed to be going nowhere until they found redemption in the form of Ethan Rice.


Rice got the ball at the top of the key, burst through the lane and laid it through the hoop with just under five seconds left in regulation to give Unicoi County a 49-48 victory over a South squad that rallied back only to lose in heartbreaking fashion.
