WOODVILLE — Jamar Kaho Jr. and Tiqi Griffin combined to score 35 points to lead the Adams County Christian School Rebels to a 63-45 win over the Wilkinson County Christian Academy Rams on the road last Tuesday night.

Kaho Jr.finished with a game-high 18 points and Griffin was right behind him with 17 points. But despite the win, Rebels head coach Matthew Freeman said they were not prepared and came out sluggish and even played that way on defense.

“Went into halftime up eight points. We just settled for a lot of bad shots and didn’t move the ball well. The second half we moved the ball around better and took some good shots,” Freeman said. “I was pretty disappointed with our defense. But we did just enough to get away with the win.”
