NEWPORT-Free throws seem to be a lost art in several levels of
basketball these days.
The Cherokee Chiefs used those extra opportunities at the line to win
a game on Tuesday though as they held off Cocke County, 58-51.
The Chiefs hit 22-of-24 shots
at the stripe to lead them to the victory, and Cocke County head coach Ray Evans was quick to give
"They hit 22-of-24 free throws. For a high school team, that's amazing,"
Evans said. "They outscored us by 14 at the free throw line."
Even with the outstanding
performance at the line, Cocke County (4-6, 1-2) had chances to win at the end.
White layup cut the lead to just two with 1:40 left, but the Chiefs continued to get to the line and
make big shots.
