The Upperman Bees and Lady Bees welcomed the DeKalb County High School basketball teams to Baxter, Tuesday night, and sent the Tigers and Lady Tigers packing with a pair of district losses. The games were the District 7-AA openers for both DCHS teams.
The Lady Bees handed the Lady Tigers a 73-29 blowout in the first game., while the Bees shook off the pesky Tigers in a 67-48 decision in the nightcap.
Upperman never trailed in either contest, as the Lady Bees stormed out to a 5-0 lead, and owned a 26-10 edge after the first period, and Upperman pulled ahead by 30 — at 46-16 at the half. It was a 65-21 advantage for the Lady Bees through three, and each team scored eight points in the final period, as the clock ran continuously due to the mercy rule.
