Boys Varsity Basketball
Game Summaries & Headlines.
The Bombers travel to Fulton City High School this evening for a JV and Varsity game. The Fulton City Bulldogs are 2-13 on the season with wins over Fort Campbell and Foundation Christian Academy. The Bulldogs have two players that can score the basketball in Dylan Jackson and Camarae Cobb. Both are averaging 14 points per game for their team on the year while both shooting over 31% from the 3 point line. The Bombers will have to try and neutralize these two guards if they want to win on the road. Coach Holder stated, “Look, it’s not going to be an easy task to go down to Fulton City and win the game on a Saturday after you played in a hard district contest the previous night. It’s just not. It doesn’t matter what their record says or who has beat them by whatever amount. Yes, our scoring margin of common opponents is closer, but we’ve both fallen short of winning those games. We will have to play how we are capable of playing in order to win on the road at Fulton City.”
The Bombers will be off Sunday and Monday before hosting the Graves County Eagles on Tuesday February 1st. They will then play on February 3rd & 4th against Carlisle County. Then will host Livingston County Central on Saturday February 5th. The Bombers are in for quite the jam packed finish to the season! Come out and support these guys next week for our 3 home games at the Green Palace!
