JEFFERSON COUNTY, Tenn. - The new year has been kind to the Dobyns-Bennett boys basketball team. They haven't lost yet in 2014, and Thursday night they won the Region 1-AAA championship by beating Jefferson County 63-52.
The Indians had won 15 straight games entering the region final.
Jefferson County tied the game at forty with a bucket in the third quarter. But John Fulkerson - who provided a one-handed slam dunk - helped the Indians pull away down the stretch.
Dobyns-Bennett will now host Oak Ridge next week in a state sectional game.
Here are other scores from Thursday night's basketball playoffs.
