After losing the first three games of the 2019-2020 basketball season, (Booker T. Washington Golden Eagles 56-44, Carroll High School Eagles 61-51 and LaFayette High School Bulldogs 67-37) the Hornets won their first game at home versus rival Barbour County High School Jaguars.

The Hornets were able to move the ball around cutting into the interior of the Jaguar’s pressure defense.

Bullock County were closing in tight on the defensive side of the ball getting rebounds and forcing turnovers.

Leading the way for the Hornets with a game to remember is Luke Surdivant.

The senior was unstoppable gathering 28 points and 20 rebounds. “Luke is at home. When he is at home, he plays well,” said Coach Douglas Moore.

Surdivant spoke about his performance: “I had to play hard for my team. We started the season slow [0-3]. I had to bounce back. Everybody worked together and grinded.”

The Hornets made it all the way to the state tournament last season.

With a young team with only two seniors, Bullock County is seeking to make it back to Birmingham and get the job done to win state.
