Cahlib Edwards, Troy Pride spur CSAS to comeback win

Arts & Sciences boys' basketball coach Mark Dragoo could have saved himself a lot of wear and tear on his vocal cords during the first half of Friday night's 55-40 district win against Sale Creek if he'd recorded himself before the game imploring his team to have more energy.

Even a raucous student section couldn't keep the host Patriots - who came into the game unbeaten against District 4-A opponents - from looking lethargic and worn down in the first half. After Sale Creek's Dominic May drained a shot from just across midcourt at the first-half buzzer, the Panthers - who haven't won a district game this season - took a 25-21 lead into the locker room.

"I just told them the same thing at halftime that I'd said the entire first half," Dragoo said.
