“Took a really solid team effort to beat a really good team,” Cobras coach Drew Gill said. The Cobras had 9-of-10 players in the scoring column with seven three-pointers made by seven different players.
Tech was up seven at the half, but Joppatowne made a run and slipped ahead by one, 53-52.
The game was back-and-fourth for the final 12 minutes. Curtis McKisset (eight points) made two huge free throws to put Tech up three with 10 seconds to play.
TJ Lowery, Jr. scored 15 points to lead the Cobras scoring. Laday Cooper, Jalen Dangerfield and Khoury Harris added nine points apiece.
