No Empty Seats Left For The Championship Game Between Corbin & Lebanon

49 teams from all over the state braved the weather on Friday evening to make it to KBA for a great weekend of action.  To win the state championship, a team has to win at least 5 games in two days!  The competition was as even as we have seen in while, with eventual champion Corbin needing a last second shot to beat JCTMS in the Elite 8.

The Championship game was electric.  As you can see in the picture above there were no empty seats as hundreds watched a back and forth game where big shots and big plays were made.  Corbin lead at half-time 27-23, and Lebanon tied the game heading into the 4th 32-32.  Lebanon’s Irvin and Cowherd made big plays to keep the game close, but tournament MVP Cameron Maguet had 10 of his game high 19 points in the 4th quarter to close out the game.
