    ST ELMO – The South Central Cougars are still looking for that elusive “complete” game.  For the first two-quarters on Tuesday night, South Central looked as though they were in position to pull off the upset on the opening night of the St Elmo Holiday Tournament.

    However, after trailing 24-22 at halftime, the Cougars were outscored 23-2 in the third quarter and would fall to 4th seed Okaw Valley 60-40.

    It was too many turnovers for the Cougars who are playing with sophomore point guard Dre Hill, who is out with a knee injury suffered last week in a game at Patoka.

    The Cougars will take on 8th seed Cowden Herrick on Friday night at 7:45 in the consolation semifinals.  Cowden lost to top-seed Altamont in the tournament’s first game 81-48.
