Ten seconds remain on the board. It’s a tied game until Texas High drains in a final layup followed by a free throw shot. On Nov. 15, the Tigers and Leopards battled it out on the court with a final score of 46-43, the Tigers taking the win.
“I think our team had a great defense. We did great as a team and came together. I think we can improve our free throws and layups in the future games,” senior Kahliyah Anderson said. “My favorite part of the game was the ending when we came back and won.”
The Tigers were behind the Leopards during the first half of the game. It wasn’t until the third quarter they got ahead, cutting it close as the clock ticked leading to the remaining seconds.
“I think our defense was up and I loved to see everyone cheering. In the final quarter we wanted to get the people who were supposed to foul out to foul out to help us win the game,” junior Amari Morrison said. “I think we all played well and I’d want to tell my team members good job and to keep pushing.”
