Greenville Lions, Lady Lions win

HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL ROUNDUP

GREENVILLE —   After jumping out to a 14-0 lead with 3:30 left in the first quarter one might think the Greenville Lions might have an easy time Tuesday in the Lions Den against the Princeton Panthers.

  Well, think again. The Lions had to hold on for a 60-57 victory as the Panthers missed three shots in the final 10 seconds.

  “Great defensive game tonight,” said Greenville coach Marcus Smith. “We never gave up. We never quit. At times we made poor offensive decisions but our defense carried us. We stressed defense from the beginning of the year. We made a great defensive stop at the end of the game.”

 Jerry Dickeson and Marlon Mack both fired in 13 points to lead Greenville, while Byron Redman tossed in nine.
