Staying hot on the heels of Elizabethton, Sullivan East rolled to a Three Rivers Conference basketball win Tuesday night.

The Patriots got 20 points from Dylan Bartley in an 82-64 decision over Happy Valley at Bayless Gym in Elizabethton.

Bartley drained four of East’s six 3-pointers in the first quarter. The Patriots (3-0 in league play) added five more treys in the second quarter and had 12 for the game.

“I think offensively we were unselfish and made the extra pass,” said East head coach Dillon Faver. “At times our defense was really good and we went on some solid runs throughout the game. It’s all about playing together and playing great defense.”

Logan Murray and Austin Davis each had 10 points for East, which improved to 11-5 overall.

The Patriots overcame a standout effort from Happy Valley’s Alex Lunceford, who scored 26 of his 28 points in the first three quarters. Blake Young added 18 points to the Warriors’ cause.
