The stat sheet and the final score told two different stories Tuesday night.
The Apalachee High School boys basketball team had more 3-point baskets and more 2-point baskets in its home battle against Flowery Branch. However, an advantage for the Falcons at the free throw line turned out to be the difference in a 63-60 win for the visitors Tuesday night.
A 16-5 difference at the free throw line resulted in the Wildcats slipping to 13-5 overall and 7-5 in Region 8-AAAAA. The loss was tough for AHS coach Kevin Morris to take as he tried to dissect the game Tuesday night.
