Demos on the hunt for back-to-back state titles on Saturday
Will the No. 1 seeded Jefferson Democrats earn back-to-back championships? That's been the biggest storyline this postseason. And as for the No. 20 seed Barlow Bruins, they have been the underdog of the tourney and have be writing their Cinderella story all the way into the semifinals where they met Jefferson on Friday night.
Barlow kept it close in the first half and despite Jefferson having the size advantage, the Democrats only out-rebounded the Bruins by two boards in the first half.
At halftime, Jefferson had just a 40-33 lead. But in the second half, it was pretty much all Jefferson. The Democrats came away with an 80-60 victory and will now meet No. 2 seed Grant in Saturday’s Championship game.
