Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont Claims SCC Title

Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont wrapped up the South Central Conference basketball crown with a tight win at Knoxville on Tuesday. What was left was a chance to run the table for an undefeated conference season. Chariton came into the EBF gym and attempted to spoil the season. It didn’t work.

The host Rockets had to rally from a dozen points down in the second half in order to secure perfection and score an 81-75 win over the Chargers. EBF improved to 15-2 overall and the perfect 12-0 in the SCC.
