Region Round Up: Grant and Wright Lead Rebels Comeback

Sophomore forward Jakeenan Grant and junior guard Jay Wright led the Effingham County Rebels to a 53-41 win over region rival Evans High School Friday night in Evans.  Grant scored 16 and Wright added 12, while Evans guard Damion Foreman led all scorers with 17 in the loss.

The Knights' (14-10, 6-3) patient attack and strong guard play worked for much of the night.  Evans repeatedly ran significant time off the clock before finding good scoring opportunities and kept the pace slow on the defensive end by using a tight 2-3 zone.  But the Rebels (21-1, 9-0) found their stride towards the end of the third quarter, ending the game with a 12-2 run after Foreman pulled the Knights to within two points early in the 4th quarter.
