TELLICO PLAINS-Devon Collier scored 27 points to lead all Tellico scorers, but could not carry his team to a win. Harriman escaped Tellico Plains with a 74-67 victory.
The Bears shot 68 percent from the free throw line but Harriman outscored them with points in the paint.
Tellico took an early lead in the first quarter 15-11, and had the advantage at the half as well, but lost the lead in the third.
A Harriman Blue Devil netted
47 points to lead all scorers and his charge led the second half come back.
Dakota Stone scored 16 points while Dakota Rhinehart added 11. Colton Carter and Austin Balcom boh scored four a piece. Bryan Cook had three points while Bryce Choate had a basket.
It's hard to win district games, but when a player scores almost 30, you like to think you have a chance to win the game.
When a player scores 47 points though, and there are some questionable calls by the officials, that makes games much harder to win. Even when you're the home team. The Bears could not overcome the odds and lost by a final of 74-67.
