Tadric Jackson leads Tift to comeback win
Saturday night’s basketball game between the Tift County Blue Devils and the visiting Savannah High Blue Jackets was billed as a “Big Blue Basketball Brawl.”
It lived up to it as both teams made like heavyweight fighters exchanging blows. However, in the third quarter, Savannah appeared to have a knock out as they finally managed an 11-point lead. However, Tift got off the canvas and delivered a knockout punch in the person of senior Tadric Jackson.
With his team down 55-53 with 1:19 left, Jackson would outscore Savannah 5-2 the rest of the way and added a steal with less than 10 seconds left to give Tift a 58-57 win.
