ST. ELMO – Brownstown held on despite South Central nearly erasing an eight-point deficit in the final minute of a 37-35 win on Tuesday at the St. Elmo Holiday Tournament.
The Cougars (1-6) made eight free throws in the final 1:08 of the game, but were unable to get a shot off after earning possession with about four seconds left.
"I told them at halftime that if they got within four in the third quarter, we would win the game," said coach Rick Simmons. "We didn't quite get there, but if you don't give up or quit, you have a chance."
