Bryson City – On Friday, prior to their game with Murphy, Swain High honored their seven seniors in their final home game.  The seniors are – Jacob Waldroup, Jesse Waldroup, Gaige Southards, Hunter Call, Bradley Vestal, Jack Stuckey and Zeke Bradley.

With 2.9 seconds remaining with the scored tied at 54, the Maroon Devils had the ball and what they thought would be the final shot.  Murphy’s Micah Nelson stole the inbounds pass and dribbled just across half court to heave a desperation shot that found nothing but net as the buzzer sounded, giving Murphy a 57-54 win over the Devils.

Bradley Vestal paced the Maroon Devils with a game high 21 points, to go along with 5 rebounds and 3 assists.  Gaige Southards added 10 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists, while Jesse Waldroup finished with 8 rebounds and Jack Stuckey with 7.
