Jaguars oust Rosewood

FARMVILLE -- Farmville Central played the game every way possible against visiting Rosewood in the Carolina 1-A Conference men's basketball tournament Tuesday night.

The Jaguars went inside and outside, slowed the tempo and raced up and down the hardwood before narrowly escaping the first round with a 56-49 win over the Eagles.

Farmville Central (16-6) led by as many as 13 points in the second half before Rosewood slowly closed the gap with some timely outside shooting. Kyle Bunn, who scored a game-high 23 points for the Eagles, knocked down his third 3-pointer with 2:36 remaining in the contest to cut the lead to 47-45.

But the Jaguars converted on 7-of-9 free-throw attempts over the final two minutes and eventually pulled away, advancing to face Ayden-Grifton in the second round.

"They stepped up and hit some big threes that kept them in the game," Farmville Central coach Larry Williford said. "Slowing the tempo down early affected us a little, but I thought we settled down more in the fourth quarter and started to attack the basket."

Rosewood elected to prolong each possession in an attempt to establish a proficient half-court offense from the opening tip, and the Jaguars were content with the grinding pace, dumping the ball off in the post to forward Javius Dixon. Dixon scored all 10 of his total points in the first half, and the Farmville Central defense held Rosewood to just five field goals before the break on its way to a 22-17 halftime lead.
