The Blackwell boys bas-ketball team may not win a playoff berth this season, but the Hornets still gave their fans a memorable ef-fort Tuesday at Robert Lee.
Blackwell overcame a five-point deficit after three quarters to tie the Steers 44-44 at the end of regul-ation. Then it got really crazy as the Hornets forced three overtimes before losing, 59-55. Caleb Jeter had 25 points for Blackwell, which fell to 2-6 in District 12-A, Division II and 9-14 overall while Robert Lee improved to 4-4 and 12-9.
