Kadin France had 10 points and 19 rebounds while Jake Blagg had 14 points and six assists to lead the Redmen to a 63-42 win over the St. Joseph Flyers on Tuesday in their final home game.
“I am really proud of our boys. The put together a complete game from beginning to end. It was a complete team effort with four kids in double figures,” said Rock Hill coach Gordy Collins.
