Not since the dawn of the new millennium has Carroll had a basketball team start a year like this.
SLC, 20-2 overall and 4-0 in district 5-6A, took sole possession of first place in district for the first time this season with the narrowest of victories over Hebron 70-69, before raucous student section at the Dragon Den.
Carroll hung on by hitting four clutch free throws to stretch the margin to four. Hebron’s buzzer beating 3-pointer was rendered meaningless as the Hawks could do nothing but watch the final seconds tick away as the ball went through the hoop.
Carroll next travels to Flower Mound on Friday, Jan. 12th after surviving a previously undefeated in district Hebron squad with the scant 70-69 victory. But like they always say in basketball…its survive and advance.
