Gravette forward Bailey Soule' beat a Greenland defender to a loose ball in the final seconds of the first quarter Nov. 28. After bringing the ball into the frontcourt, he hit Kelton Trembly for a buzzer-beater. Soule's hustle play kicked off an 11-0 Gravette run and, from there, the Lions never trailed on their way to a 56-41 win against Greenland. "That was huge," Gravette coach Matt Busch said. "I just got through praising Bailey. He was our heart and soul tonight. Bailey is our energy guy and our on-court leader. He's definitely a guy everybody kind of feeds off. Buzzer beaters, dunks, anything like that, that's going to get kids going at any level." Following Trembly's floater, Gravette reeled off the first nine points of the second quarter to grab a 20-10 edge. Trembly added a pair of 3-pointers, while Soulé, Colby McCarthey and Chris Childress also added a bucket. Gravette's defense picked up as well, holding Greenland to 2 of 6 from the floor in the second to grab a 26-16 halftime lead....
