Wildcats Basketball Coach Clark Cipoletta declared this past weekend’s (December 12-14) Forney Tournament a successful one for his Wildcats saying they got better as a team against good competition. The Wildcats made it to the Tournament Championship Game where they lost 47-46 to The Colony when a last second three-point shot refused to fall. Coach Cipoletta said anytime you can get to a tournament championship game you have to be excited about it. He said the Saturday loss did not take away from how well the Wildcats played at times. He called the loss a learning opportunity to get better. He said one thing they can take away from the loss is that it is hard to win with a slow start against a good opponent. The Wildcats trailed by 11 at the half after two less than stellar quarters that included more than the usual number of turnovers. Coach Cipoletta said the Wildcats were casual with the ball in the first two quarters. He said he is continuing to want four good quarters in each game by his Wildcats. Day Day Hall made the All-Tournament Team. Coach Cipoletta said Hall was deserving and he added that Grayson McClure, Boo Wilkerson and Cameron Kahn also had some strong games. Next for the Wildcats is Denton Guyer, ranked #5 in Class 6A, in the Main Gym at Sulphur Springs High School Tuesday night.
