After suffering through a bad third quarter, the Wildcats Basketball Team, ranked #17 in Class 5A, staged a serious fourth quarter rally but could not come all the way back in a 70-64 home loss to Denton Guyer, the #5 ranked team in Class 6A, Tuesday night (December 17) at the main gym at Sulphur Springs High School. Guyer trailed at the half, 32-29 but then came out hot in the third quarter. Guyer’s 8-0 run put them up 37-32. Guyer outscored the Wildcats 20-7 in the third period to go up 49-39. The Wildcats got an 11 point fourth quarter from Grayson McClure, a 9 point period from Justin Brock and 5 points from Dal Day Hall to just about erase the deficit. Almost. The Wildcats got to within 66-64 in the last two minutes of the game. After that, the Wildcats could not get a steal and were forced to foul. Guyer’s junior Brayden Bradshaw went 4 for 4 from the foul line down the stretch and the Wildcats could not answer. Guyer improved their season record to 11-2 while the Wildcats slipped to 11-5. Guyer senior Tyler McGhie led all scorers with 20 points. The Wildcats were led by senior Day Day Hall with 19 points including 2 three-pointers.
