Josey Advances to Friday's Semifinal Round

In the opening game of Monday's quarterfinal round of the region 3-AAA tournament, the Josey Eagles defeated the Glenn Hills Spartans.  The Eagles advance to Friday's semifinal round and earn a spot in the state tournament with the win.

Josey led early as the front line of Kyle Doyle (6'6"), Robert Askew (6'7") and Rueben Dean (6'6") was effective on both ends.  But the Spartans mounted a comeback with the help of the accurate shooting of guards Aubrey McRae and Leroy Graham.  But Josey guard Darius Williams came off the bench and gave the Eagles a spark, hitting three pointers and attacking the basket in transition.  After trailing 29-27, a flurry of scoring put Josey ahead 48-36, and the Eagles never looked back.

Enjoy the highlights.  And stay tuned for highlights from more of Wednesday's region 3-AAA tournament action.
