  • Free throws fly in Harriman sweep

    The free throws were evenly split as well as 80 were attempted in the girls game followed by 80 more in the boys contest.

  • Raiders split with Dyersburg...

    Fishermen often spin tales about "the one that got away.”
    This, for the Roane State Raiderettes was the one that got away as free throws, or lack thereof, did them in as the Dyersburg State Lady Eagles soared to a 74-72 triumph Friday evening.
    Dyersburg State used runs of 11-6 and 13-6 to get out to a 36-23 lead at one point in the first half before the Raiderettes scored the last four points of the first half to make the score 36-27.
    Ashley Cox (6 points) led the Raiderettes at the half.
