LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The 2nd ranked Nazareth boys rallied in the 2nd half to top Vega 45 to 36 at South Plains College to win Region 1 title and advance back to State.
The Swifts trailed by 5 at the half but outscored the longhorns 16 to 7 in the third and then 10 to 5 in 4th to win the regional for the 2nd straight year.
Nazareth was led by Sage Black's 17 and 15 from Sid Sheffey.
Last year the Swifts lost in the State Title game and now they get a chance at redemption.
