The Gainesville boys were dealt an unfortunate night to face Apalachee. Facing Region 8-AAAAA’s highest-scoring team, the Red Elephants could only watch as the Wildcats drained a season-best 16 3-pointers and rolled to a 90-73 win on Friday. Apalachee, which entered the game averaging 79 points per game, was 10 of 13 from the 3-point line in the second half, which helped the Wildcats avoid a potential Gainesville rally when the Red Elephants (10-8, 4-6) cut their lead to seven with 5:24 left to play.
