SMITHSBURG - The South Hagerstown boys basketball teams didn't give up after they started the season with an 0-6 record.
Instead, the Rebels did something about it, winning 7 of 11 games since their cold start.
South Hagerstown's latest triumph was a 61-48 win over the Smithsburg Leopards on Friday night in an MVAL Antietam boys' basketball game.
"We started out 0-6, but I told our players to not worry about the record and just focus on the conference," South Hagerstown coach Dennis Seman said. "My guys are listening to my philosophy and are doing a nice job. I think that our very tough nonconference schedule prepared us for the conference."
Point guard Steven Burnett scored a game-high 19 points for South Hagerstown (7-10, 7-3). Muzammil Bhutto had four 3-pointers among his 17 points to go along with six rebounds, while Alvin Roberson collected 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Rebels, who outrebounded the Leopards, 34-18.
