    PRINCETON — Isaiah Lacy scored 23 points and Jaylon Dugan added 18 as the Sulphur Springs Wildcats won 71-66 over the Panthers in overtime action here Tuesday night.
    Sulphur Springs had 10 3-pointers in the key road win as they advanced their record to 2-4 for the year.

    “Overall, it was the best game we have played. We got defensive stops and key shots when we needed them. It was a good win against a successful program,” said Jeremy Jones, Sulphur Springs  boys basketball coach.
    Princeton, ranked No. 22 in Class 3A, fell to 4-7 on the year.
    “We hit some big 3’s to stay in it,” Josey said. “We were down eight at the half. Derick Ingram and Lacy had some big shots for us. We also hit our free throws for once. We won the free throw battle against Princeton.”
    Josey was also pleased with the way his team handled the ball, making less than 10 turnovers as a team against the Panthers.
    “We overcame the early deficit and came back with a big fourth quarter,” Josey said. “We outscored them 24-15 in the fourth to force overtime.”
    The Wildcats open the Wills Point Tournament vs. Edgewood Thursday at 9 a.m.
    Josey said, “We continue to get better and grow as a team. We are excited about competing Thursday in the tournament. Early games are all about energy.”
