Larry "The Truth" Nevel keeps on winning on the Great Southern Billiard Tour.

Larry “The Truth” Nevel picked up his third straight and eighth overall win on the Great Southern Billiard Tour the weekend of June 28-29 by defeating J. R. Rossman twice. The $1,500-added event drew 45 total entrants to Randolph’s Billiards in Hickory, NC.
Earlier Sunday, Nevel had sent Eddie Little to the one-loss side with a commanding 9-1 victory before facing Rossman in the hot seat. Rossman, who’d sent Peaches Fuller west with a 9-6 victory in his previous match, fell to Nevel 9-3 to face Mike Davis in the semifinals.
On the one-loss side, Davis and Mark Parlier had worked their way through Darrel Caldwell and Brian Capps, respectively, before dropping Fuller and Little into a fifth-place tie and facing each other in the quarterfinals. Davis advanced with a narrow 9-7 win before ending up in third place in a semifinal match that went to hill-hill before Rossman advanced for a second try at Nevel.
Rossman had hopes of bettering his 9-3 hot seat defeat, but Nevel wasn’t interested. “The Truth” went from the final four on the winners’ side to first place having lost only 5 games of the 32 he played, including his final 9-1 defeat of Rossman.
