Wildcats Basketball Team Gets District Victory At Home Over Hallsville, 60-46, Tuesday Night

For most of the game Tuesday night, January 26, the Wildcats Basketball Team would jump out to a solid lead only to see Hallsville fight back and make it close.

At one point in the third quarter, the pesky Bobcats trailed the Wildcats by only 3 points, 33-30. The Wildcats closed the quarter on a 7-0 run that made it 40-30. This time the Wildcats were able to extend the lead in the fourth quarter to take a 60-46 win.

Eight different Wildcats scored points led by point guard Lamodrick Johnson with 17 points and post Justin Haire with 13 points. Guard Boo Wilkerson scored 12 points, played tenacious defense on Hallsville top scoring threat and finished the game despite a turned ankle. Guard Caleb Alexander and post Kordrick Turner scored 6 points apiece. Guard Malique Cole scored 3 points. Guard Jatavian Hall had 2 points. Guard Cason Arrington had 1 point. Hallsville was led by guards Benjamin Samples and Jai Locario who each had 9 points.

The Wildcats improve to 7-2 in district play and they remain in second place. The Wildcats are now 14-8 for the season.

Next for the Wildcats is a critical pair of road district contests starting with a trip to third place Longview Friday night. They then travel to first place Mount Pleasant next Tuesday. Both these teams defeated the Wildcats in Sulphur Springs with a three point basket right at the buzzer.
