The East Jackson girls’ basketball team just missed picking up a non-region win at home, falling 48-46 to North Oconee Saturday (Jan. 18).

Coach Cherrelle Pullen called the defeat “a tough loss.”

“Especially after we were winning the majority of the game … Missed layups, free throws and poor management of game situations toward the end put us in a position not to be on the winning side (Saturday) night,” she said. “But again, a learning moment for us.”

The Eagles (10-11, 3-5 Region 8-AAA) return to action Tuesday (Jan. 21) on the road at region opponent Hart County at 6 p.m.
