The Nevada High School junior varsity boys' basketball team has been hot through the middle portion of the season.
The JV Tigers currently hold a three-game winning streak that began with a 35-23 victory over Butler on Dec. 10. That night, Nevada never led until the final 2 minutes of the third quarter.
The Tigers followed that up with a dominant performance against Clinton in which Devion Leavell scored a team-high 15 points. The Tigers went on to pick up the victory by a final score of 63-56.
On Thursday night, the momentum came to a screeching halt when coach Neil Barnes' squad fell to Carthage by a final score of 56-34 thanks to a 23-0 run in the second half.
The Tigers will be back in action on Friday, when they head back out on the road to face McDonald County.
