Chase Dunn contributes in TTU win

He never was the tallest player on the floor even when he set the school scoring record at Livingston Academy, but Tennessee Tech’s Chase Dunn, #24, doesn’t mind leaving the floor chasing a missed shot as in Thursday’s 106-44 win over Crowley’s Ridge College. Dunn had 7 points, 3 steals, 2 rebounds, and an assist against the Pioneers, then he had a career high 21 points Sunday night in a 74-56 win over Bluefield College. So far this season, Dunn is averaging 16 minutes of playing time per game and almost 9 points per contest.

LA teams play in Florida tournament
By Mac McLeod,
OCN Sports

With four wins against only two losses, both the girls and boys basketball teams of Livingston Academy had a successful holiday playing in tournaments in Nashville and in Daytona Beach, FL.

In the Ensworth Christmas Tournament in Nashville the week before Christmas, both teams reached the finals only to lose. The boys fell to a powerful host team, 84-53, while the girls took a strong Clarksville team down to the wire to fall short by only two points, 54-52.

After a few days off , the two Wildcat squads gathered in Daytona Beach last week for some sun and basketball. They got the sun, but the cold weather followed them to central Florida for the Sunshine Classic.

In the opening games, both teams faltered, the girls losing to Perry Central of Kentucky in overtime, 72-66, and in the boys’ opener, the Wildcats stumbled to a 58-55 loss to Sunland Baptist Academy.

But both teams recovered from the losses with the girls posting a 54-38 win over Satellite High school of Florida and followed that victory with a solid 56-39 win over Shelton of Kentucky. When play resumes back in Tennessee this week, the Lady Wildcats will be boasting a fine 15-2 record with a 3-0 district mark.

After their first game setback, the LA boys played well the remainder of the tournament, posting a 65-57 win over Bishop Kenny, then capping off their tournament play with a nail-biting 58-54 win over Sea Breeze High School.

When the Wildcats resume play this week at home against Stone Memorial, they will sport a 9-8 overall mark and a 3-0 district record.
