In the nightcap at Rossville, the Bobcats would almost mirror the performance of the Lady Bobcats taking a five-point lead, 30-25, into the locker room.
However, the guests from West Memphis, Ark. would win the second half to claim a five-point win.
Alex Miller put up impressive numbers with 12 points and 11 boards in the home loss. Freshman Quinton Cotton led the way with 21 points on the night for the Bobcats, while guard Eugene Palmer led the Greyhounds with 15 points.
A pair of flashy half-court passes from freshman Tavish Reynolds to fellow freshman Quinton, combined with a bank-shot three-pointer from 6-foot-5 post player Bud Todd, highlighted the offensive output of the Cats in the first twenty minutes.
It would be the press of the Greyhounds that stole the show in the second half. Mid-South would grow their lead to 11 in the second half before the aggressive play of the Cats would get the Cats within two at 56-54 in the final two minutes.
But GNTC would get no closer as turnovers and late free throws by the Greyhounds helped lift the visitors to the tough road win.
