GAINESVILLE - The Red Elephants got scoring contributions from 12 of their 15 roster players and, thanks to a smothering 1-2-2 half-court defense, held Lumpkin County to 20 points in their 61-20 rout of the Indians on Tuesday night in Gainesville.

"We have been working hard on defense and trying to execute a lot better," Gainesville coach Jerry Davis said. "We wanted to play some defense that was more solid and force the tempo up a little bit."
