Feb. 10, 2011 - The varsity Tigers faced the Sam Rayburn Rebels in an away game on Jan. 28, and out-shot the home team to clench the win. The Rebels trailed by a few points the entire game and weren’t ever able to gain the momentum needed to get a run going and take the lead. The win was a full-team effort with every member of the Tigers contributing points.
The Tigers were hot from beyond the three-point field goal line, with Blake Hicks and Isaiah Turner both contributing shots from that range in the first quarter. Storm Taylor, Jacob Redmon, I. Turner, Aaron Shanks and Max Scoggins each chipped in two-pointers and Tyler Turner threw up a solo from the free-throw line to secure the 19-point total for the Tigers’ first quarter. The Rebels trailed by four at the end of the first, but also found success from two players in the three-point range.
The Tigers maintained control of the game in the second, scoring 12 points to the Rebels seven. Four of the Tiger’s points came from free throws after fouls against Hicks, Redmon and Shanks were called. Shanks, Christian Lyday and Scoggins completed the scoring with two-pointers.
After the break, Storm Taylor - who had a respectable two points up to this point in the game - found his niche behind the three-point line and scored six of the Tiger’s 13 points during the third quarter. Another triple by I. Turner, a double by Matthew Wilson and freebies by Hicks rounded out the away team’s points.
Taylor continued his three-point assault in the fourth, where he swished in two more and added a two-pointer and three free throws for a total of 11 points in the fourth for him alone. Free throws were added by Hicks, T. Turner and Scoggins, and T. Turner and Ty Lynn also scored a “two” each. The Tigers scored 19 points total in the fourth and finished off the Rebels with the final score of 63-56.
