This past weekend, the Yazoo Elite 12U basketball team defeated the Jackson Nuggets 32-27 in overtime to capture the 2019 Jackson City League 12 year old championship. Yazoo Elite finished the season with an 8-3 record.
There’s a saying in basketball that goes, “If you live by the three, you die by the three.”
Thirty teams have tried. Thirty teams have failed.
With the score tied at 39 and the final horn sounding in their ears, the Yazoo City Indians thought they were headed to an overtime period to decide their first round playoff contest against the Louisville Wildcats.
