The Escambia County High School boys’ basketball team moved to 2-0 in the area Tuesday with a 68-60 road win over Clarke County.

The Blue Devils’ improved ball movement was a difference in the game and helped contribute to the win, said coach Earlando Courtney.

“We did well,” he said. “We corrected those problems sharing the ball. We had settled into a mode where everyone tried to take the ball to the hole. We had problems with that early in the year and corrected it then.”

The team had seven assists and only five turnovers in the game, which is an improvement, Courtney said.

“Our execution was a lot better,” Courtney said. “Everybody executed and stayed within their own game. Our shot selection was 100 percent better.”
