Lance and Lucas Crismond led Coffee County in scoring with 15 points each. Anthony Jackson had 8, Brock Ivey-Bodman sank one 3-point shot, and Lake Elam added three points, all critical free-throws late in the fourth period.

The victory came as a true team effort, noted Coffee County Coach Scott Givens.

The win follows a 45-44 loss to Kingsbury of Memphis Thursday night in the first game of the Classic in Murfreesboro.

Coffee County plays its first district game next Friday at Warren County.
