Sulphur Springs wrapped up an incredibly successful outing in Allen’s In-n-Out Invitational on Thursday, Dec. 29, winning their final game to place 5th in the holiday tournament.

The Wildcats played a scrappy Rowlett team to round out their final tournament on the season, beating the Eagles 61-52 in Allen.

Rowlett played it close throughout the majority of Thursday’s contest, but a surge in the third quarter, which saw Sulphur Springs outscore their opponents 20-11, paved the way to a second-straight victory in Allen.

Coach Brandon Shaver had three players finish in double-figures. Kordrick Turner had his third 20-point game in the tournament in the win over the Eagles.

The senior forward was followed closely by SG/PG Branson Lynn with 18 in the victory over Rowlett.

Malachi Myles got consistent good looks in the paint thanks to beautiful passing from the Wildcats. The 6’2″ senior scored 16 points on Thursday in Allen’s auxiliary gym.

The 61-52 win over Rowlett wraps up the Allen tournament for Sulphur Springs, who went 3-1 over the three-day holiday invitational. Day-by-day breakdowns of the In-n-Out Invitational:
