Closing out the first part of the 2019-2020 basketball season, the White Oak 8th grade boys defeated Arp 40-16. With the win, the Necks move to .500 on the season at 3-3 and 2-2 in district play. Both Trent Pepper & Brock Reddic finished in double digits on the night. Using a mixture of full court press and man to man defense, White Oak allowed single scoring in each quarter for the 2nd straight game.
“This was a good dominating win going into Christmas. We shot the ball well, moved it around well, and had very few turnovers. Going 9-23 from the line though is something that has to improve. There is going to be a game this year in which free throws will play a factor in a win or a loss. We have to continue working hard everyday, because the toughest part of our schedule will be coming over after the break.”
