In the second half, Cody Jobe made a free throw to push the Rebel lead to 30-26. From that point, Clarksville went on a 35-14 run to close the game out. Clarksville found ways to get the ball inside, and performed much better at the line, going 10 of 13 in the final half.
Clarksville was led in scoring by Landon Glidewell and Stephen Reeves, with 15 points each. Joe Bartley added 10.
Hertle led South Central in scoring with 16, followed by Jobe’s 11.
