Tournament champs

The Scurry-Rosser Wildcats were winners of the Hubbard basketball tournament.


Scurry-Rosser varsity boys trailed most of the night but pulled ahead in the final minute last Tuesday to take a 58-56 basketball win over Wills Points.

The Wildcats were down 24-14 after one quarter but trimmed the lead to 34-29 at the half and got the edge 47-45 through three periods.

Jade Whittington scored 25 points, Gunner Hill 16 with three 3-pointers and Hunter Word 11.

“We got behind early and really had to work for this one,” said Coach James Hill. “Our kids just kept cutting into the lead and were able to come away with the win in the final minute.”

The Wildcats followed that performance by bringing home the trophy from the Hubbard Tournament Saturday.

Whittington, Hill and Carson Thomas made the all-tournament team as the Wildcats improved to 9-2 for the season.

Scurry-Rosser scorched the hosts to open the action 57-28. Whittington scored 19, Hill 9, Nate Stewart and Madden Haynes 6 each, Jacob Holbrook 5 and Word and Jack Bussey 4 each.

The Hubbard JV was next with Scurry-Rosser getting the win 39-9.

Austin Babovec had 8 points, Word five and Hill, Whittington and Thomas four each.

Wortham was the final victim, 45-22 with Hill scoring 16, Word 8, Whittington and Holbrook seven apiece and Thomas 5.
