The Braves wanted their season to continue beyond the first round of the 32nd district tournament, but it just wasn’t meant to be, as they fell to Walton-Verona 60-48 Feb. 22 at Simon Kenton High School.
“When it gets time for playoffs, I always say the first one to 50 wins,” Braves coach Jim Hicks said. “Walton-Verona beat us to 50.”
Hicks said his team’s youth showed and that Grant County set out what they wanted to do by getting more shots than Walton-Verona (54-40). The shots just didn’t go in for the Braves.
