Jamestown faced Tuscumbia Feb. 28 in first-round action at the Class 1 District 9 Boys Basketball Tournament at St. Elizabeth, where the Eagles ended the season with a 64-28 loss to the Lions.
Tuscumiba, the #3 seed, led 26-7 after the first quarter and 38-24 at the half. The Lions outscored Jamestown, the #6 seed, 11-2 and 15-2 in the second half to take the win.
