Dragons stay confident despite 60-55 Chilli loss
The Cameron High School Dragon Basketball Team nearly ended the regular season with a victory over arch-rival Chillicothe, but fell short 60-55 thanks to strong 3-point shooting by the Hornets.
Cameron seemed primed for an upset with senior guard Ian Riley and sophomore guard T.J. Best getting hot early with a pair of 3-pointers and close-range shots but could not stop Midland Empire Conference foe Chillicothe behind the arch, which allowed the Hornets to fend off a Cameron rally late in the second half.
“We didn’t shoot the ball well tonight. We had a lot of lay-ups and wide-open threes we normally hit,” Cameron coach Mark Gordon said. “Their shots did go in tonight and that was the difference in the game. I was proud of how hard our kids competed ... I feel like we’re playing our best basketball, but we’re also playing the toughest teams on our schedule.”
