Led by juniors Jasper Gibson and Campbell Reed the Dawson County Tigers men’s varsity basketball team opened the 2018-19 season with a dominating home win over the Flowery Branch Falcons in a non-conference match-up Nov. 15. With an emphasis on the outside game, the Tigers ran away early as they built up a 26 – 3 first period lead driven by Reed’s, 14 first-period points as he went 4 for 4 from three-point territory and sank one from just inside the line on a beautiful fade-away jump shot. Gibson took over the offense in the second, as he drove the lane for two buckets and then demonstrated his shooting ability, grabbing three of four three-pointers on the night to lead the Tigers into the break with 13 points in the period.
