LITTLEFIELD — Greene Cen­tral closed strong, stretch­ing its win streak to four games af­ter beat­ing Ay­den-Grifton 70-63 on Fri­day night in boys’ bas­ket­ball ac­tion.

A-G se­nior Jus­tice Bar­ber tied the game at 63-63 af­ter mak­ing two clutch free throws with 1:55 left to play. The Rams (11-4) an­swered with a 7-0 run, mak­ing the game out of reach for the Charg­ers (7-6).

Turnovers were a fac­tor for both teams, but missed free throws were a ma­jor down­fall for the Charg­ers as they ended the night with 18 missed foul shots.

“We fought our way back in but we gave it away by tak­ing bad shots in the end,” A-G coach John Kyle Moye said. “De­fen­sively I thought we did pretty good, forc­ing turnovers. But I think we lost the game at the end on free throws.”

GC ral­lied to go up by 12 points late in the first quar­ter. But the Charg­ers also ral­lied and cut into the deficit, go­ing into half­time down by seven.

The third quar­ter was back and forth. Jayvion Cook showed his crafty han­dles and kicked the ball out to Bar­ber, who hit a 3-pointer to tie the game at 48-all with 1:30 left in the third for one of the ties in the sec­ond half.

Bar­ber scored 18, Leon­tae Moye had 14 and Jor­dan Atkin­son 12 for A-G. GC had four starters with dou­ble-digit points: Donte John­son (20), Ima­jae Dodd (14), Don’Quez Davis (13) and Rha­heem Ed­wards (12).

GIRLS’ GAME

Ay­den-Grifton remained win­less af­ter Greene Cen­tral downed the Chargers, 50-44.

A loose ball during the game led to a scrum of play­ers and four play­ers with tech­ni­cal fouls. GC went to the line and cut the lead by the Charg­ers (0-12) to one point with free throws. The Rams (3-9) marched back down the court and picked up momentum on a three-point play for a two-point lead with 2:14 left in the third quarter.

The Charg­ers went into half­time with a nine-point edge, but Greene Central surged in the third and never looked back.
