The Tigers picked up their second win of the season Friday night, and also won their first area game and first road contest with a victory over Russellville.
"On film we noticed that they weren't really tall. We were able to get the ball in the paint where Jackson (Holmes) was able to have a good night," Hartselle coach Johnny Berry said.
"Our defense was great. We made them shoot from further back and really did a good job of making them feel uncomfortable. Their leading scorer (Cory Trapp) came in averaging about 23 points and we held him to just 13."
Hartselle (2-17, 1-3) shot 18-of-32 from the field, compared to 15-of-47 for Russellville. Holmes led the way for the Tigers with 19 points and Victor Stansberry added 10.
Trapp scored 13 points to lead Russellville.

Mary Virginia Reeves scored 14 points to lead Hartselle (16-4, 4-0 in Area 16), and Jones and Anna Reeves each added 12.
