Adairsville falls to Calhoun, finishes 4th in region tourney

Posted

Tucker Deams had a massive night, burying seven 3-pointers en route to 25 points, but it wasn't enough to lead the Adairsville boys past Calhoun in the third-place game of the Region 6-AAA tournament Monday at North Murray.

After the teams went into halftime tied at 20-all, the Yellow Jackets held a decisive scoring advantage in the third quarter to pull off a 59-49 win.

Calhoun will face the Region 8-AAA runner-up in the first round of the Class 3A state tournament this coming weekend. Meanwhile, Adairsville is set to face the league's champion in the opening round. The result of the 8-AAA title game between Jefferson and Franklin County was not known at the time of publishing.

Monday, the Tigers took a 14-8 lead after one quarter behind a pair of treys by Deams and five points from Savaun Henderson. The Jackets rallied to tie the game by halftime before holding a 24-14 scoring edge in the third period.

Deams had 10 points in the fourth quarter, but Adairsville could only match Calhoun in the stanza. A junior, Deams had two 3s in each quarter except the second, when he had one.
