Representing the Dawson County varsity basketball team, senior Luke Chism and junior Jasper Gibson combined for 55 points against the Danes Jan. 18, leading the Tigers to a 68-49 victory at Denmark High School in Alpharetta. “They’re 15-5, they’re pretty good,” Head Coach Chad Pittman said. “We’re going to have to play or else we won’t be happy in an hour and a half.” Chism spread his points across the game, starting in the first period when he immediately challenged the Danes defense for control of the lane and pushed through for 6 points from the floor along with 2 more from the free-throw line. Juniors Brody Howell and Bryson Broadway added points in the rebound battle to give the Tigers the edge by a score of 13-11 heading into the second period.
