NEW MADRID -- The New Madrid County Central freshman basketball team pulled out a tight 65-63 win over the Dexter Bearcats Monday in overtime.
"This was a big win for us tonight," said Eagle coach Keith Sapp. "I'm always telling the team, win or lose, play hard because once it's over you can't get it back. I'm still not fully satisfied with our defense. Our kids must communicate and be more consistent on the defensive end."
NMCC's next game will again be against Dexter on the road Jan. 3 at 5 p.m.
