GAINESVILLE -- The Dawson County boys basketball team pulled into a tie for second place in Region 7-AAA on Tuesday after a 51-44 win over North Hall in Gainesville.

Cameron Millholland and Sam Muenchen each scored a game-high 13 points to lead Dawson County, while Levi Whitmire added 10.
Brock Wingo paced North Hall with 10 points.
The Trojans will travel to face region No. 1 seed Buford on Friday.
