KNOXVILLE (WVLT) -- Bearden's boys basketball team handed West its second loss of the season Friday, a 59-56 nailbiter decided at the free throw line.

The Runnin' Rebels took a late one-point lead, but a pair of free throws each by Rico White and Ty Greene gave Bearden a three-point advantage with just seconds remaining.

West (17-2) mustered two three-point tries, but neither fell, giving Bearden (20-1) its second win in three meetings with the Rebels.

West previously handed the Bulldogs their only loss, a 67-66 setback on Dec. 17.

The two teams will not play against in the regular season, but will likely square off during postseason play.
