Waterville-Elysian-Morristown put the pressure on the United South Central boys’ basketball team Friday in their Section 2AA game in Watertown and the Rebels weren’t able to break it in a 49-44 loss.

USC trailed 33-23 at halftime and fell behind because of turnovers created by the Buccaneers press.

The Rebels also shot 29 percent from the field in the first half to make matters worse.
