Dade's Brice Stanley and Garrett Sharp battle for the rebound.

By: Eddy Gifford, Publisher


The Dade County Wolverine basketball team got back on the court Friday night after Mother Nature forced a pair of games to be postponed over the last week.

On Friday night the Wolverines hosted Morris Innovative in a Region 7AA game. The Dalton school only has a boy’s team so the Lady Wolverines had the night off.

It didn’t take the Wolverines long to decide the game as they jumped on the outmanned team from Dalton and took a commanding first quarter lead, 32-8.

By the end of the first half the Wolverines had built a 59-17 lead and they never looked back.

When the final buzzer sounded the Wolverines came away with a 94-24 win as all the Wolverine players got in on the action.

Clynt Bell led the Wolverines with 27 points followed by Brice Stanley with 16, and Nic Gaddis with 12. Stanley also grabbed 11 rebounds and Reed Hulgan had 10 rebounds.

On Saturday night the Wolverines found themselves in a completely different game.

The Chattooga Indians came calling and ready to play as they took it to the Wolverines early in the game.

With just over two minutes remaining in the first quarter the Indians had built a 21-4 lead on Dade and had them completely out of their game.

The Wolverines rallied late in the first quarter and cut the lead to 10 points, 24-14.

The Wolverines continued their fast paced attack and with just under four minutes remaining in the first half tied the score at 30-30.

The teams then went back and forth with the Indians claiming a 41-38 lead at the end of the first half.

In the third quarter the lead changed hands seven times and the score was tied three times as the two teams battled toe to toe. At the end of the quarter Dade was on top 59-58.

The fourth quarter was more of the same. The Indians took an early three point lead only to see the Wolverines rally back and take a five point lead.

The Indians then scored the next eight points to lead 70-67 with 2:43 remaining in the game.

The Wolverines scored the next six points to reclaim the lead 73-70 but the Indians tied the game with 1:24 remaining, 73-73.

The Wolverines then put the game away from the free throw line after a basket by Bell with 53 seconds remaining to put them on top 75-73.

In the final 53 seconds Bell hit seven of eight free throws and Dade came away with a hard fought 82-73 win.

Bell led the Wolverines with 41 points followed by Gaddis with 15.

The highlight of the game was the play of Brice Stanley who grabbed 11 rebounds and had five blocked shots to go along with his eight points. The sophomore had his best game of the season as he sees more playing time each game.
