Looking to put their loss in the final round of the Tip-off Classic behind them, the Dawson County High School Tigers varsity basketball team traveled to Flowery Branch High School Nov. 29 take on the Falcons in a rematch of their season opener. Led by junior Jasper Gibson’s 28 points (along with the 1,000th point of his career) on the night the Tigers took control of the game from the opening buzzer and took home their third victory of the season with a 79–47 drubbing of Flowery Branch. Gibson found immediate success from the outside as he went four of four from the 3-point line during the first period and gathered 28 points overall on the night to lead the Tigers in scoring. Luke Chism, Tate Adkins and Eli Burruss also added points in the first as Dawson County led the Falcons 23–9 after the opening eight minutes.
