Coach Brandon Shaver and his team put on a show in last weekend’s tournament in Stafford, as the Wildcats placed second in a crowded tournament full of talented schools.
Sulphur Springs went 5-1 Thursday through Saturday, going a perfect 2-0 Thursday and Friday before falling short in the championship game.
Thursday saw the Wildcats pick up wins; first against Dekaney in a tight one 56-52 before demolishing El Campo 91-44.
Another perfect day on Friday, going 2-0, Sulphur Springs crushed Alief Elsik 63-26 then MacArthur 80-49.
Prior to taking part in the championship game, men’s basketball faced Dekaney in a rematch of their first tournament game, taking care of them 62-49 to set up a date with Fort Bend Marshall in the gold game.
Unfortunately for Coach Brandon Shaver and his squad they fell 66-56 to place second in the Stafford tournament.
The Wildcats kept it tight, trailing 14-13 after one, but a tough second quarter saw Fort Bend Marshall go up big on Sulphur Springs 37-25. Men’s basketball would have a much stronger third quarter, pulling back within six, but their deficit in the second proved too large to overcome as they went on to lose 66-56.
The loss on Saturday, Dec. 10 ended the Stafford tournament, as the Wildcats fell in the championship game to Fort Bend Marshall.
Men’s basketball went 5-1 in the Houston tournament, now 13-3 on the year.
Sulphur Springs returns home to host two-straight home games. It begins Tuesday, Dec. 13 when Coach Shaver and his squad host former district foe Texas High.
That game tips off on Tuesday at 7:30 P.M.
