The Wildcats Basketball Team, ranked #9 in Class 5A, used an end of game 10-0 run to finally secure a victory over Texas High, 64-55 in Texarkana Friday night (January 24). The run occurred after the Tigers took their first lead in awhile, 55-54 in the fourth quarter. Day Day Hall started the run with a basket inside the lane. Justin Brock then stepped into a passing lane for a steal and then made a basket on the other end. Brock also closed out the second quarter with a buzzer beating three pointer that gave the Wildcats a 5 point lead at the half. The game was closely contested until the late final run. The game was tied 16-16 after one quarter. The Wildcats went up 34-29 at the half. The Wildcats also ended the first half on a 6-0 run after Texas High had taken a 29-28 lead. The Wildcats led by only 2 after three quarters, 45-43. Wildcat Boo Wilkerson had an excellent offensive night to go with his defense. He led the Wildcats with 20 points including 4 three-point baskets. Wilkerson also helped fuel the Wildcats decisive fourth quarter with 6 points in the period. Hall had 16 points including 2 three-pointers including one from well behind the line. Grayson McClure canned 4 three’s for 12 points. Cameron Kahn and Brock both scored 6 points.
