East Carter was a little slow coming out of the gate this season, but has started to play less selfishly and is showing much more teamwork, which has been leading to some impressive victories of late. East Carter punched Russell in the mouth to start tonight's game and never looked back, as a running clock went into effect in the 3rd quarter, with the starters taken out early in the 4th quarter.
East Carter avenged an earlier 8 point loss to Russell on December 10th.
East Carter has won eight straight games since their 5 point home loss to Boyd County, with whom they have a highly anticipated rematch tomorrow on Boyd County's home court. Boyd County has won 6 of 7 since their win over East Carter.
Many believe East Carter and Boyd County are the top two teams in the 16th region, and tomorrow's game could very well establish a favorite to win the 16th Region.
