Jacob Russell sank 9 of 12 free throws in the fourth quarter, including two that iced things with 8.2 seconds to play as home-standing Anderson County overcame upset-minded Mercer County 65-62 Friday night. Anderson is now 4-0 on the year.
Russell finished with 18 points, hitting 14 of 18 free throws. “You just have to try to not think about anything,” Russell said of his approach to the pressure-packed free throws.
