The Pine Tree Pirates finished with a 20-9 scoring spurt to take a 52-33 win over Sulphur Springs Saturday in the District 13-4A basketball opener for both squads.
Sulphur Springs (1-17, 0-1) reduced their turnovers, but had other mistakes which played into the hands of the quick and fundamentally sound Pirates.
The Wildcats had just 10 turnovers, a huge reduction from 32 in their recent loss against Longview in tournament action.
“We had other mistakes, like people taking 3-point shots when they aren’t supposed to, that’s the same as a turnover,” said Wildcats head coach Braughn Curtis. “We are not scoring well. We’re taking bad shots, we just are having trouble working together as a team. We have capability to be much better than this, some players need to learn their role.”
QUINLAN — The Cumby Trojans suffered a 47-40 loss to the Quinlan Boles Hornets Saturday afternoon even with starter Timmy Cook hitting 21 points.
Cumby kept the scoring within a bucket through three quarters of play. Only slightly trailing, Cumby just wasn’t able to shut the Hornets down in the final quarter.
Cook snagged three from the hosting opponent. He led in scoring followed by Michael Morris with 10 points, six rebounds, two assists, six rebounds and two steals.
