Desi had another good game, Shakoja hit some big shots. We were able to do what we wanted to do. In the fourth period we worked on our delay game.”
Chapman said, “We won this game so we get to play Winnsboro again. We’d like to have a better game against them. They are very good. Winnsboro is one of the best teams around and they can play with anyone. We’d like to get our program to that point.”

Wills Point Shootout
Sulphur Springs 59
In the first game of the Wills Point Shootout, the Wildcats were clipped by Edgewood, 66-59.
Isaiah Lacy, Derick Ingram and Reid Burns contributed 10 points each in a losing cause.
“We led most of the first half until the final two minutes and we went down by five. We came out after half and made a run to tie the game to start the third quarter,” said Jeremy Josey, Sulphur Springs head boys basketball coach. “Edgewood had lead as large as 14 in the third quarter. We responded and cut it to five, but never any closer than that. Our emphasis following that game was to compete and play hard every minute of the game. We seem to be starting strong and finishing strong, but not playing solid in between.”

Royse City responed several times as they should and would,” Josey said. “However, our guys did not back down. Royse City cut it to four point with less then two minutes, but finished some plays inside today that we had been doing all year. It was good win and hopefully something we will be able to build on.”
