After splitting the opening tip-off tourney, Madison County’s boys’ basketball team returned from the holiday break to take on Elbert County in a tough home battle Tuesday.
Expecting the pressure from the Blue Devils, the Red Raiders battled from the start, jumping to an early lead, but Elbert County bounced back and took the lead at the start of the fourth quarter. Madison County made clutch free throws and retook the lead. Elbert County’s seven game win streak ended with the Madison County 74-68 victory.
“I am pleased with the win, but we didn’t do it the way I expected,” said coach Stephen Crouse.
