Jets' basketball teams collect two wins vs. Rhea County

"We finally played an entire game. We got the win and (a shot at) a better seed in the district (tournament). We will try to move up from fifth to sixth," said CCHS basketball coach Scott Eggleston, whose team beat Rhea County 71-62 Tuesday night in a District 5AAA match to avenge their earlier 67-37 loss in Evensville.

"Rebounding was important. We held them to one shot (at the basket)," added Eggleston.

The Jets outrebounded Rhea County 43-22 and forced six turnovers, while CCHS dominated the offensive boards, getting a lot of second, third and even fourth shots at the basket.

CCHS also worked their offense, making crisp passes for some easy layups, especially, to Andrew Cravens and Andrew Houston, and cut down on their turnovers (16).

"Andrew Cravens did a great job blocking out. Andrew Houston and Joseph Blalock did a great job defending James Capps," noted Eggleston.

The duo held Capps to just nine points.

"Our intensity was up. It was a total team effort. The coaches gave us a great scouting report. A lot of people stepped it up tonight," added Cravens, who recorded a double-double (23 points and 11 rebounds) with three steals and four assists.

Houston, who was last week's PrepXtra Player of the Week, lived up to that recognition, by adding 14 points, eight rebounds and four assists.

Landon LaSalle also had a double-double (16 points and 10 boards).

The point total for both Cravens and Houston (37) matched the team's entire point total in the loss at Rhea County in December.

Three players were in double figures for Rhea County — Adam Pelfrey (18), Jeremy Haley (17) and Chris Roberts (10).

The first quarter started out as if it were going to be a "shootout at the OK Corral," as there were 15 lead changes, before the quarter ended in a 20-20 deadlock.

Cravens would tie the game for the Jets on a layup in the waning seconds.
