Wildcats Basketball Wins in Hallsville, 52-49

Wildcat Basketball

Men’s basketball got a huge 52-49 victory in Hallsville on Saturday, Feb. 5.

The loss for Hallsville is the first all season long for them at Bobcat Coliseum, dropping to 10-1 at home.

Sulphur Springs winning over Hallsville also improves the Wildcats’ chances of finishing the regular season as district champs.

After Saturday’s victory over the Bobcats (8-2 district), the Wildcats (7-2) are now one game back of first placed Hallsville with just three game left in district play.

The remaining schedule for Sulphur Springs features three tough games. Two straight are at home, followed by their season finale in Texarkana at Texas High:

  • Tuesday, Feb. 7 vs. Longview (5-5)
  • Friday, Feb. 11 vs. Mount Pleasant
  • Tuesday, Feb. 15 at Texas High (4-5)

While the men’s basketball team split the season series with Hallsville by getting the win Saturday, Feb. 5, Coach Brandon Shaver’s squad needs to win out, thereby beating Mount Pleasant on Senior Night on Friday, Feb. 11 if they wish to be undisputed district champs.

A win over the Tigers next Friday on Senior Night could spring the Wildcats ahead of Mount Pleasant and Hallsville in the final district standings.

First Coach Shaver and his squad have to get through Longview on Tuesday at home.

That game tips off in the SSHS Main Gym on Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 7:15 P.M.
