Playing at home for the first time in almost a month, the Dawson County Tigers extended their winning streak to four games with a crushing 71-36 victory over the Fannin County Rebels on Jan. 11. “I have been saying since summer that when you have graduations, transfers and new players that it takes a while to come together,” said Head Coach Chad Pittman. “I think we have been seeing that over the last weeks. They’re coming together, sharing the ball, trusting each other more. I think we can get better every day.” Junior Eli Burruss started the scoring with a hard drive to the basket for 2 points followed by a quick 5 points from senior Luke Chism as the Tigers opened the game with a 7-0 run in the first minute.
