BOYS BASKETBALL: Adairsville falls to Cartersville

BOYS: Cartersville 76, Adairsville 51

Adairsville got off to a slow start and was unable to recover against the undefeated and No. 1-ranked Hurricanes.

Adairsville was outscored 14-6 in the first quarter, and trailed 37-17 at the half.

Tyler Washington led Adairsville with 12 points, and three players — Austin Greenfield, Marcus Childers and Kyle Adams — added nine points each.

AJ Mosby finished with 18 points for the Hurricanes (22-0, 11-0), who appear to be playing even better now than they were in late December, when they won the RN-T/Seven Hills Rotary Club Holiday Festival title.
