Earlier in the season, Harriman's Grayson Kreis (1) heavily contests the shot of Kingston's Blake Woody (34). The two teams were in action during the school break in Harriman's Annual Christmas Tournament, with different outcomes.

The Harriman Christmas Holiday Tournament began on Thursday with the Kingston Yellow Jackets and Lady Jackets going against the Oakdale Eagles and Lady Eagles. Followed by the host teams, the Blue Devils and Lady Devils taking on McMinn Central and Mt. Pisgah Christian in the night cap. Both Kingston teams would come away victorious as the Lady Jackets defeated the Lady Eagles 62-22, while the Yellow Jackets defeated the Eagles by a score of 75-58. The boys game was a high speed affair with the Yellow Jackets demonstrating early and often their long range game connecting on 12 three pointers for the evening.

The Jackets would open the contest with 4 consecutive three pointers enabling them to take a 16-9 advantage as the first ended.
