Adair County's incredible season came to an abrupt end Tuesday night when the Indians lost a nail-biter to district rival Taylor County in the championship game of the 5th Region Tournament. Adair (32-2) had beaten Taylor three times already this year, but fell just short in the fourth contest, 67-66.

"Hats off to Taylor County," says Adair County head coach Deron Breeze. "A regional championship game is meant to be entertaining and competitive and that is what both teams gave the 4,000 in attendance. Unfortunately, one team has to win and one has to lose and for the first time in four games between Taylor and Adair this year, we lost."


Continuing the Indians' postseason trend, Kel Stotts and Cameron Lasley provided the offensive spark Tuesday. Stotts finished with 27 points and Lasley added 17 to pace the offense. Chance Melton added nine points and 10 rebounds. Corey Melton scored six points, Dylan Feese had five, and Jordan Lasley scored two to account for the Indians' 66.

The problems for Adair included an inability to close out quarters, lapses rebounding missed free throws, and missed easy shots. "We gave up six points off free throw box outs, 10 if you include the technical and the four points they got from it," Breeze says. "We also missed a lot of easy shots at the rim. Taylor County's zone allowed them to contest more shots at the rim tonight than in previous matchups."

Despite the disappointing end, the 2017 edition of the Indians will go down as one of the most accomplished in recent memory. Thirty-two wins are a school record, and the season also featured a 24-game winning streak and 20th District Championship. Breeze gives much of that credit to his six seniors. "We've won 53 games over the past two years," Breeze says. "These seniors, they were ranked fourth in football this year and ninth in basketball, and I'm not sure that has ever been done by a group in Adair County history. These guys should be examples to all in the community."
