Basketball is considered to be a game of runs, well Oak Ridge survived an 8-0 run late in the 4th Quarter that cut their lead to 1 point, only to go on a 3:01 – 10-0 run of their own to win over Siegel 68-57 last night in Murfreesboro.
Oak Ridge raced out to an early 22-10 lead in the first 5 minutes of the game, but over the next 8 minutes only scored 4 points to be down 1, 27-26. The game was tied at 30 at the half.
In the 3rd quarter saw both teams score 14 points, which led to the showdown in the 4th tied at 44.
The Wildcats were led in scoring by Jonathan Milloway with 20 points, Jonathan Stewart added 16, while Jeremy Miller added 13 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists and 2 steals.
