“It was a pretty good game, that was very physical,” stated Clinton head varsity boys basketball coach Brad Spell. “Wallace dominated the boards and had a three point lead at the half.” Spell added that the Bulldogs led as much 7 points midway through the third quarter. “We settled down and started running our offense and got back into the game. We still have a long way to go on defense because we are still not rotating like we should.”
