MURFREESBORO -- 

For a game that enjoyed multiple lead changes, Blackman certainly made the outcome appear convincing.  For the ninth time in the last 10 meetings, Blackman (PrepHoopsTN #6) defeated Siegel High.  The final score of 58-51 fails to convey the back-and-forth nature of the game throughout.

Siegel entered the PrepHoopsTN Top 10 earlier this week, but the loss could jettison them out again.  Blackman will remain in the Top 10 for the fourth consecutive week regardless of all the other results.  How did it happen?

Closing Time

Blackman was up 48-44 with 1:41 left in the game.  

At 1:33 Matthew Schneider hit a 3 from top of key!   It made the game as close as could be, 48-47 with 1:30 left. The celebration was brief though. Jalen Page quickly finished a layup on the other end.  The ball traveled completely around rim.  Swirly, surely.

50-47 Blackman.

Martise Jackson is a player a couple of teammates recommended for upcoming "Lockdown Defenders" article.  He did quite well against a very gifted point guard Friday night.
