The Lee Williams boys basketball team had an incredibly exciting home game Friday night with James Coffman sinking a 35-foot three-pointer at the buzzer to win the game. How the Daily Miner did not cover that is completely surprising. (Editor’s note: We have no sports reporter or editor. That is one of the reason why. Also, the Volunteers finished with a 6-12 record. Most coverage of their season would have been deemed negative for that reason.)
