The Dawson County Tigers basketball team headed into their longest road trip of the season after beating up on the Pickens County Dragons 80–47 Dec. 21 at home. The game got off to a slow start as the Dragons played a slow paced, keep-away style of basketball in the opening minutes and held the Tigers scoreless until senior Luke Chism finally broke free under the net to start a 5–0 run for Dawson County at the 6 minute mark of the first period. Chism’s hard-charging inside game opened the court for Dawson County and juniors Eli Burruss and Jasper Gibson were able to take advantage of the Dragons from the outside as they both posted shots from beyond the 3-point line. The Tiger defense kept Pickens County away from the net with a series of turnovers and Dawson County finished off the first period with a 21–12 lead.
