    PARIS — Sulphur Springs was outscored 16-6 in the fourth period, losing 52-46 to North Lamar in boys varsity non-district basketball action Tuesday.
    “We played well and controlled the game for the most part.

We were up late, but we did not finish,” said Jeremy Josey, Sulphur Springs head boys basketball coach. “We have to learn to finish.”
    The Wildcats dropped to 1-3, North Lamar is 3-0 this season.
    Larry Pryor had 15 points with six steals and six rebounds. Jaylon Dugan added 10 points and five boards.
    The Wildcats had 35 rebounds as a team against the taller NL squad.
    North Lamar’s Hunter Sartor had 18 points for high point honors and Levi Porter added 13 for the victors.
    “Pryor played well, he was our leading scorer and rebounder,” Josey said. “He’s athletic and has a knack of being round the ball.”
    Josey continued, “All of our players contributed. I was impressed how well our guards Derick Ingram and Isaiah Lacy handled the North Lamar press. We had some turnovers, but not that many considering. That is something I wanted to see because many teams in our district use pressure defense.”
    The Wildcats also held their own against the taller undefeated Panthers.
    “North Lamar has 6-7, 6-4, 6-3 players and we did well against the big posts,” Josey said. “North Lamar got some key rebounds in the fourth quarter that they turned into putback basketballs. That let them comeback.”
    Josey said, “The guys are playing hard. We are getting better and we continue to teach them the game. We need to learn better shot selection. We missed several shots late. But if we continue to grow and improve, we will be successful.”
    The Wildcats lost the JV game, 52-32. The Sulphur Springs freshmen fell to North Lamar, 52-42.
    The Wildcats play at 11:30 a.m. Thursday in the Royse City tournament against John Tyler. If they win, they meet the winner of the Forney/Greenville game at 11:30 a.m. Friday. If Sulphur Springs loses, they meet the Forney/Greenville loser at 2:30 p.m. Friday.
    “We excited about getting the chance to play John Tyler,” said Josey. “They will be a lot like Marshall, the best team in our district. It’s a great opportunity to go up against a good team. They will be the best team we have faced so far.”
