Wildcats Basketball Team’s Last Shot Does Not Fall as They Have to Settle for Second Place in Tourney

After falling behind by 11 points at halftime due to a less than stellar first two quarters, the #3 ranked Wildcats Basketball Team staged a serious comeback in the second half that came up just one point short. The Colony, ranked #14 in Class 5A, hung on to win 47-46 to take the Championship Game of the 2019 Forney ISD Winter Classic at Forney High School Saturday (December 14) night. The Wildcats trailed 47-43 with 37.7 seconds left when Day Day Hall hit a high arcing three-pointer from the top of the key. Moments later while trailing by one, the Wildcats got a steal with about 10 seconds left. Boo Wilkerson, who had already made 3 three-point baskets, attempted another but this one did not go in. Cameron Kahn grabbed the rebound as the horn sounded before he could take a follow shot. The Wildcats had a tough first half as they were plagued by turnovers. The Colony led 15-9 after one quarter and 28-17 at the half. The Wildcats came out with added spark in the second half and outscored the Cougars, 16-12 in the third quarter to trim the lead to 40-33. The Cougars strategy in the fourth quarter was almost fatal. They chose to go into a delay game rather than run their offense like they had the first three quarters. It seemed to get them out of sync offensively. The Wildcats outscored The Colony, 13-7 in the last period. Cameron Kahn led the Wildcats with 16 points. Wilkerson and Hall both had 13 points. Lamodrick Johnson added 4 points. Hall was named to the All-Tournament Team. The Wildcats are now 11-4 for the season. They will take on Denton Guyer, ranked #6 in Class 6A, in the Main Gym at Sulphur Springs High School, Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
