THIS WEEK’S FEATS:
Pippins went for a season-high 14 during Countryside’s win over Palm Harbor University and then matched that number two days later as the Cougars scored a huge victory over rival East Lake.
The senior came into the PHU game averaging 3.5 points a night before totaling 28 in the next two.
DEFEND THE TITLE:
Countryside’s won back-to-back Class 8A District 10 championships and East Lake will be the Cougars’ top competition when the tournament gets underway Feb. 5. East Lake will host the event that wraps up Friday night.
