Bears stun Hawks for first win over Green Hill

Jan. 17—MT. JULIET — Since Green Hill's 2020 opening, Mt. Juliet's boys had never beaten their crosstown rivals in basketball.

The Golden Bears played like they were determined to change that trend last Friday as the Hawks made the 4.5-mile trek and lost 45-40.

Mt. Juliet scored the first five points and never let Green Hill get solid footing on the game, though the Hawks forged a couple of ties and had a 21-20 lead in the second quarter and a 38-37 edge going into the fourth as the game, though no one's season was at stake, had a tournament feel.
