Raiders' rally falls short against Morgan

(Continued)

Jan. 16, 2013 —

But with some misfortunes for East in the fourth quarter, Stewart was called for a technical foul when he thought he stepped in for a charge. He yelled just one word at the officials and was given a technical, his fifth and final foul.

Baker said he doesn’t blame Stewart for getting a little too emotional with his response.

“I can’t be mad at Kyle because it was a very emotional game,” Baker said. “It shouldn’t get to that point, that needs cleaned up. You clean that up early and it doesn’t get to that point.”

Many teams could have folded when one of its leaders gets taken out of the game, but not East. Down 58-51 with one-minute left, the Raiders cut the lead to two, 58-56, with 19 seconds left, had a chance to win it, but turned the ball over with 3.5 seconds left.

“Our guys stuck with it and gave ourselves a chance in the end and that’s on me,” Baker said. “I didn’t have us late-game ready, it was exposed and I feel for my guys because I didn’t have them ready for that.”

Along with Stewart, East Carter (7-10) had Jordan Burchett finish with 11 points and Quinn Huddle 12. Conner Greene scored six, Trenton Welsh had five points and Cole Brammer scored four points.

The Raiders were back in action Tuesday night as they hit the road to take on Fleming County.
