Carroll 43, Caston 27
The Comets’ home game on Saturday night against Taylor was snowed out. On Friday night it was the Comets’ shooting that was cold in a loss at Carroll.
The Comets shot just 25 percent from the field in the loss and dropped to 2-2.
“We were just flat out cold,” Caston coach J.R. Howell said. “We got a lot of good looks and didn’t hit. We shot 4 of 23 from 3 which killed us. We shot just three free throws, Quentin [Douglass] went 1 of 3.”
