Game Report on Grimsley-Ragsdale Boys Basketball:Metro 4-A Boys Race getting tight, as Tigers top Whirlies

Boys Varsity Basketball Final from Grimsley High School/Bob Sawyer Gymnasium:
Ragsdale 77, Grimsley 68
End of First Quarter:Ragsdale 18, Grimsley 8…Halftime:Ragsdale 33, Grimsley 22…End of Third Quarter:Ragsdale 54, Grimsley 35…Final:Ragsdale 77, Grimsley 69

Ragsdale scoring:Aaron Fant 26 points, Jah Saigo 21 points, Andrew Siler 11, Kobe Parker 9, Williams 4, Stevens 4, Jones 2
Grimsley scoring:Alex Taylor 21 points, Tyler Albright 16, Zacck Wiggins 11, Jordan Wall 10, Jaden Watlington 7, Nick Elliot 3

It was a 16-3 run by Ragsdale early in the first quarter, that got the Tigers off and running/rolling…Grimsley could get within 7 points in the fourth quarter, but free throws down the stretch sealed the win for Ragsdale…Six free throws by Fant, four free throws by Siler, and two free throws by Saigo sealed it for Ragsdale…
(Total Denial by the Ragsdale defense, early in the game/first quarter.)

Jah Saigo might have the highest running motor in the Metro…His motor gets moving, and it won’t stop…Tyler Albright, from Grimsley, would also fall into that high motor category….
