JONESBOROUGH — It seemed like Sullivan South’s boys basketball team couldn’t miss during an 87-53 thumping of Sullivan Central last Friday night.

But the law of averages caught up with the Rebels in a big way on Tuesday night, leaving them on the short end of a 55-44 decision against David Crockett.

From the perimeter to point-blank range and all points in between, South’s shots clanged off the rim time and again. The Rebels went just 6-for-33 from the floor in the first half and shot 29 percent for the game, yet they were able to hang with Crockett for most of the way thanks to a strong defensive effort.
