FLORA — In a long basketball season, it is good to have contributors outside of the starting five. For the Oak Hill Raiders, they have playmakers in spades throughout their roster.
Oak Hill’s bench scored 22 points, and the Raiders defeated the Tri-County Rebels, 54-46, in MAIS District 2-AA play Saturday afternoon at Tri-County Academy.
“I was proud of my second group,” Oak Hill Head Coach Brian Middleton said. “In a high school game, the bench contributing that many points is a huge number.”
