From Staff Reports

 

ALBANY – Despite a tremendous effort by the Southland Academy Raider basketball team (SA), The Deerfield-Windsor Knights were able to make the plays they needed to make in overtime and defeated SA by the score of 61-58 on Thursday, January 16, at the Deerfield-Windsor School (DWS).

“It was a tough overtime loss. I am proud of this team. They played very hard,” SA head coach Rundy Foster said. Foster went on to say that his club struggled shooting the ball in the second half and also had trouble getting stops on the defensive end as well, but gave the credit to the Knights.

Owen Exley had an outstanding game for the Raiders, posting a double-double with 32 points and 11 rebounds. With the loss, the Raiders drop to 10-3 overall on the season and are now 2-1 in the GISA Region 3-AAA standings.

The Raiders will have the weekend off before they travel down to Valdosta on Tuesday, January 21, to take on Valwood. In the last meeting between the two teams, the Raiders defeated the Valiants 64-43 back on Tuesday, January 7. Tip off from Valdosta is scheduled for 7:45 p.m.
