Braves drop tight road showdown

Despite a career-high 37 points from Jared DeHart, Indian Creek traveled south Tuesday night and came up just short in a 66-63 battle with Madison.

Zach Pugh added 10 points and three steals for the Braves (12-7), who tried to stage a late rally after entering the fourth quarter down 11. A full-court shot from Landon Conner at the first-half buzzer capped a 25-10 second quarter for the Cubs.
