In a district battle for second place Friday night, January 29, at Longview, the Wildcats Basketball Team blitzed the Lobos over the first two quarters and then coasted to victory, 62-44.

The Wildcats opened strong and led 17-6 after one quarter. The second quarter was almost a perfect copy of the first as the Wildcats outscored Longview 18-6 to go up 23 points at halftime, 35-12. The Lobos could only trim 5 points off the lead over the last two quarters.

The Wildcats had three players in double figures as sophomore Kordrick Turner poured in 18 points. Senior Boo Wilkerson scored 12 points. Junior Justin Haire had 10 points. Sophomore Parker Whisenhunt had 8 points. Junior Caleb Alexander scored 5 points. Senior Lamodrick Johnson added 4 points. Senior Malique Cole scored 3 points. Ben Hatcher had 2 points.

The Wildcats improved their district record to 8-2. They are two games behind first place Mount Pleasant and two games up over third place Longview in the loss column. The Wildcats travel to Mount Pleasant next Tuesday. Then they close out the district season at home on Senior Night against Texas High next Friday. The Wildcats season record is now 15-8.
