The Tigers traveled to Carey to take on the Blue Devils in MAL action on Friday night. Feb. 11.
Evan North started the game with two block shots and a tip in for two with 4:52 left in the first to make it a 2-6 ball game. Jacob Frost stepped behind the three point arc and made it a 5-8 game immediately after. Austin Davis swatted a Blue Devil shot attempt and drained a free throw to keep it tight at 6-12. North drove the paint for two plus the harm to make it 9-16 with one minute left in the first. The Tigers showed good hustle in the first to keep it close at 9-22.
Everything they did right in the first went way south as they were only able to muster two points in the second quarter off a Frost shot from the charity stripe. Poor ball handling and turnovers plagued the Tigers as the Blue Devils took full advantage by outscoring the Tigers 33-2 in the second.
North started the second half scoring with a spin move in the paint for two. Davis utilized the extended banking hours with two off the glass and we had a 15-61 game with 4 minutes left in the third. Andrew Peters shot what looked like a hot potato and put it in for two to end the third quarter trailing 17-66.
Jordan Watson banged in a free throw to get on the board in the fourth. Chase Nichols followed suit from the charity stripe with one bucket and Davis drained two as well to make it a 23-74 game with 4 minutes left in regulation. Alex James banged in two points with three defenders hanging on him and then went to the paint for another two. Nichols drove the paint for two to end the Tigers scoring and the game down 29-83.
Scoring for the Tigers was Evan North with 9, Austin Davis 5, Jacob Frost 5, Alex James 4, Chase Nichols 3, Andrew Peters 2, and Jordan Watson with 1.
The JV boys played the Blue Devils with much the same results. Whereas the Varsity Carey coach showed some class, the JV coach kept his press on for the entire first half. Evidently he felt they wouldn’t be able to hold on to their 8-47 lead at the half. The final ended with the Tigers a little short at the buzzer, falling 19-83.
Scoring for the Tigers was Zack Finkenbeiner with 7, Chase Nichols 5, Tyler Trumbull 4, Cody Cotterman 2, and Garrett Boyer with 1.
