South Carroll junior guard Dylan Graham talks about the Cavaliers' win over Winters Mill.
South Carroll boys basketball coach Jim Carnes isn’t a big fan of his team’s slow starts, and it happened again Tuesday night against visiting Winters Mill.
The Cavaliers trailed for nearly three quarters and fell behind by as many as 11 points. But Carnes loves the fantastic finishes.
South Carroll used a strong fourth quarter en route to a 60-50 victory over the Falcons.
“We have been coming back all year,” said Carnes, whose team outscored Winters Mill 19-9 in the final quarter. “They don’t get frustrated. They just play hard and with intensity.”
Junior guard Dylan Graham sparked the Cavaliers’ rally. He finished with 19 points, which tied a season high, including 15 in the second half. The rally ensured a fifth win in seven games for South Carroll (8-7, 5-2 county).
“In the first half, we rushed some shots,” Graham said. “We took a lot better shots in the second half and got settled in. We knew we could win the game. We have had a lot of slow starts, but we have come back a lot.”
