Tigers beat Chrisman in opener, 58-52

Starting strong is a key to for any team in any tournament and Hutsonville-Palestine's boys' basketball team was able to accomplish that Wednesday (Dec. 27).

The Tigers picked up their third straight win after an 0-6 start, as they held off Chrisman for a 58-52 victory on the opening day of the Tri-County Holiday Tournament at Kansas High School.

Hutsonville-Palestine jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead on a pair of baskets by Isaac York, but the score was tied 13-13 after one quarter. Each team then scored 10 points in the second quarter to send the game into halftime deadlocked at 23-23.

The Tigers seized control in the third quarter, two three-pointers from Evan Newlin and baskets by Jerry Gower and York capped a 10-0 run to give Hutsonville-Palestine a 33-25 lead. The Tigers led by as many as 10 in the period and held a 50-41 advantage heading into the final period. The Tigers led by as many as 11 in the fourth quarter, but an 8-0 run by North Clay closed the gap to 52-49 with 3:50 remaining. However, the Tigers were able to make enough plays and sink enough free throws down the stretch to hold on for the win.

"Any win is a good win and we found a way to hang on," HHS-PHS head coach Mike Billingsly said. "We've got to understand time and score a little better. We're still learning, but we are winning at the same time, which is good."

York led Hutsonville-Palestine with 22 points, 10 rebounds, seven blocked shots, four assists and two steals, while Gower posted 13 points, six rebounds and one steal. Evan Newlin contributed eight points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals, Adam Pickering totaled five points, three assists, one rebound and one steal, Will Newlin netted four points and four rebounds, Chris Thacker collected three points and three rebounds, Zeke Nave recorded two points, three rebounds and one steal and Aaron Nehls added one point, three steals and two assists.

"The guys played their roles well," Billingsly said. "We've got some other guys stepping up and doing more things, which makes us deeper."

Kyle Webster led Chrisman with 17 points, 16 rebounds, two steals and one assist, while Porter Hale posted nine points, five rebounds and one steal.

Also Wednesday, Tri-County rolled past Martinsville 67-48, Windsor-Stewardson-Strasburg downed Westville 69-61 and Paris beat Arthur-Lovington-Atwood-Hammond 52-47.
