JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – Campbell County High’s Cougars jumped ahead two to nothing scoring in less than thirty-seconds on the games first possession with Oneida on Monday at Brown Gym. Oneida tied the game at two, took the lead at 4-2 and never let go of the lead until deep into the first overtime. WATCH on demand from WLAF.
Yes, it was all up hill for the Cougars, but they were up for the climb. Oneida built its largest lead out to 14 midway through the second quarter and held an 11 point advantage at intermission, 35-24. Not much changed in period number three as the Indians kept their double-digit lead at 48-38.
Campbell had not played a game in almost three weeks while Oneida was in its third game in four nights. It appeared that both teams suffered from their recent histories, Campbell early and Oneida late. Because the Cougars dominated from the fourth quarter through the two overtime thriller. Campbell outscored the Indians 20-10 in the final frame to force a 58-58 deadlock and OT on a Devin Jones left side lay in with 1:32 left in regulation.
The Cougars took only their second lead of the night when it went on top 65-63 in the first overtime. Campbell’s last point of the overtime, a John Long free throw, stood up to prompt a second four-minute session at 69-69.
Devin Jones set the tone 35-seconds into overtime number two when he ripped the ropes for a right wing three to give Campbell its second biggest edge of the night, three, at 72-69, and the Cougars never trailed again. With a minute to go, Campbell built its largest lead at 78-73 though Oneida would not go quietly. The Indians charged back to make it 78-76 and had the ball for a last shot that missed and was rebounded by Long for Campbell as time expired.
Campbell’s two man game strategy of Jones and Long paid off as Jones tallied 29 points, 22 after halftime, and Long finished with an impressive double-double of 19 points and 15 rebounds. The Cougars lost David Adkins to fouls halfway through the fourth quarter in likely his best game of the season. The third double-figure scorer was Adama Sanogo with 10 while Adkins finished with nine points to go along with multiple rebounds, steals and deflections.
Gavin Owens, who played and had seven points in Campbell’s 70-39 junior varsity win, played a critical role in the second half and overtimes as he was assigned to guard the Indians best player, Mason Keeton. That’s because Coach Ernie Clawson did not want to risk losing Jones, who defended Keeton, after he earned his fourth foul. Owens had five points including a three as Gavin Cox posted three points on a night when every point had to count.
Campbell is 8 & 6 and 0 & 2 in District 3-AAAA while Oneida slips to 9 & 7 still sitting atop District 3-A at 2 & 0. Next up for the Indians is a Friday night home district game with Sunbright. Central visits Brown Gym Tuesday for a 7:30pm district showdown between Campbell and the Bobcats. The Lady Cougars and Central tip at 6pm while the JV game features the Cougars and Central at 4:30pm.
