They finally met.  The best offense versus the infuriatingly physical defense.  Shooters versus Rebounders.  Spacing versus Patience.

Shockingly, Notre Dame proved to be the tougher shade of green, winning 53-45.

The halftime score was 28-24 thanks to a buzzer-beating three-pointer by Jaylon GreenJaylonGreen5'10" | PGKnoxville Webb | 2022StateTN. Webb held a meager two point lead after three quarters, 36-34.

The Young Webb is a Dangerous Webb


Dominant teams often have seniors that dominate, and maybe you can lie yourself into believing that the team’s dominance will dip or plummet once that class graduates.  Webb is not that team, that program.

Figuring greatly into their current and future success are: sophomore Lukas WallsLukasWalls6'3" | SGKnoxville Webb | 2023StateTN, freshman
