CHURCH HILL — There are times in basketball when you can gain more from a loss than a win.
That wasn’t the case on Tuesday night at Volunteer High School.
Sullivan North (5-3) continued making positive strides by scoring a convincing 63-47 victory over the Falcons (1-10), the school’s third win in a row.
Volunteer, on the other hand, seemed to take a step backward by putting forth an effort coach Chris Brown deemed uninspired.
“I don’t think it was about North tonight. I think it was about us,” Brown said.
“We just didn’t come out with any kind of intensity. I’m just disappointed in our effort.
“No execution. Execution, energy — I don’t think we had any of the two. You aren’t going to win any ballgames like that.”
