Wildcats take down #1 Dale


Carter Crowe caught the pass at the right-wing and buried a three. Just like that, the No. 7 Wildcats 11-point first-half lead was gone. The No. 1 Pirates had weathered the storm and took its first lead of the game with 5:33 to go in the third quarter. 

The Pirates would push their lead to six with 3:15 to go before Cashion’s Alex Nabavi and Jonah Jenkins put the Wildcats on their back.

On three straight possessions, the ball ended in Nabavi’s hands. Each time the ball went through the net, the last one a three-pointer to pull the Wildcats within one with 1:30 to go.

If this weekend in the Coyle Invitational is the future of Crescent Lady Tiger basketball, they will sure be a tough out in the upcoming state tournament playoffs next month.

The Lady Tigers finished second to #4 Okarche (20-1) on Saturday night in Coyle losing a hard-fought tough-it-out game 42-30. The Lady Tigers had the deficit down to six points in the fourth quarter until the Lady Warriors stepped on the gas and secured the win.
