The Byers boys traveled to the Delta Tuesday, Feb. 20, and fell 47-39 to Shaw.
“It just wasn’t our night,” said Kevin Jones, wrapping up his first year as head coach of the Lions. “We got in foul trouble early in the first half and had to sit three starters. But we kept it close, only down seven at halftime.
“In the third quarter, it was the same, with us being in foul trouble and having to sit starters.”
