The Tigers traveled to Lakota to take on the Raiders in MAL action on Thursday night. Déjà vu set in early as the Tigers were unable to mount any kind of offense.
Evan North drove the paint for two plus the harm and was then followed by Jacob Frost who drained a 10’ jumper. The Tigers found themselves in familiar territory by trailing 5-25 after one quarter of play.
Austin Davis started the second with two off a fast break. Watson drained two free throws and hit a baseline J for two to make it a 12-30 game with 6 minutes left in the second. North put a spin move on for two and fought for a rebound and another two to close the score to 18-30. The Tigers were able to add a few free throws to the effort and found themselves down 22-33 at the half.
Davis started the third quarter off with another fast break two and followed by Andrew Peters with two off a baseline jumper. Davis dropped a left handed hook shot in for and was matched by North with two of his own in the paint to make it a 31-36 game. Frost hit a baseline jumper along with two more from North and the Tigers fought back to close the gap 35-36 at the end of three. Alex James rejected a Raider shot to end the quarter.
North started the fourth by posting up for two followed by Davis for two with another left handed hook. North drove the paint twice to give the Tigers their first lead of the game 43-42 with 4:41 left on the clock. Once again someone put a lid on the basket and the Tigers were unable to score for three minutes and found themselves down 51-43 with 1:48 left in regulation. Davis broke the slump with a ten foot jumper and Frost matched him with a three from way beyond the arc. Andrew Peters ended the Tiger offense with a back door two and a final score of 50-55.
Scoring for the Tigers was Evan North with 17, Austin Davis 10, Jacob Frost 9, Jordan Watson 8, and Andrew Peters 6.

The Tigers came out stronger this first quarter off of the hot hand of Jacob Frost. Frost scored all ten of the Tigers first quarter points as they took a 10-6 lead into the second quarter.
Frost kept up the hot hand in the second quarter as well and received some help from Evan North with his two free throws. The Tigers did find themselves down 20-21 at the hit half.
North and Davis helped the effort with a bucket apiece and a three from Frost. Andrew Peters hit a baseline jumper but the Redskins had done their damage and took a 30-41 lead into the fourth quarter.
Jordan Watson drained a three with 7:45 left in the fourth but it would be a full four minutes before North hit a baby hook to make it a 35-54 game. Solly ended the Tiger scoring with a baseline two and the Tigers fell 37-59.
Scoring for the Tigers was Jacob Frost with 21, Evan North 6, Austin Davis 3, Jordan Watson 3, Brandon Solly 2, and Andrew Peters 2.
