Going into double overtime and being just inches away from an upset, the Washington County Commanders fought tooth and nail against the Adair County Indians on Jan. 31.
Despite their best efforts, however, the Commanders fell 76-71 in the heated competition.
Commanders head coach Bernard Smalley said you couldn’t be upset with a loss like that.
“The kids played their hearts out,” Smalley said. “I can’t say anything, nothing negative.”
He added the game could have gone either way.
