The Pendleton County Wildcats were involved in two games decided by three points last week. The Wildcats defeated Ludlow on the road 67-64 and lost a home game to district rival Harrison County 55-52.

Pendleton County first took on Ludlow last Wednesday, January 23. Senior guard Aaron Gibson hit a 3-pointer with 24 seconds left in the game, and the Wildcats held on to a 3-point victory.

“We were fortunate to pull out the win,” PC head coach Ed Cravens said. “We struggled defensively guarding the 3-point shot as we gave them ten 3-pointers. We missed several free throws late in the game.”
