The JV Tigers had three strong offensive quarters on Friday, and it was too much for Alvarado to handle.
Glen Rose was especially good in the first and third quarters on the way to a 59-50 victory.
“We had a good first quarter (15-5) and then we didn’t handle their pressure as well in the second quarter (10-19),” said coach Erik Hartman. “We took control again in the third (15-5) and held on in the fourth (19-21). We have to adjust better without calling timeouts, but I saw us get back to fundamentals and have some fun. We rebounded well and penetrated effectively.”
Wayne McFadin led the way with 15 points, including five in each quarter after halftime.
“McFadin did a great job scoring,” Hartman said. “He took it to the hole and made some really good moves for layups.”
Jayden Reynolds was one of two players to score 12 points, as he scored six in the opening quarter.
“Jayden gets in there for rebounds and putbacks to get his points,” Hartman said.
Chance Nabours also scored 12, including five in the first.
“Nabours had a good scoring game (Friday), and I thought he also played well against Stephenville,” Hartman said.
Hunter Williams scored all eight of his points in the fourth quarter, including two three-pointers.
“Hunter had been shooting the three-ball well all week, as had Wayne,” Hartman said. “We kicked it out to Hunter twice in the fourth and he hit the threes.”
Sam Strother and Derek Kramer each scored six points.
“We just need to keep improving as we look toward the Venus game next week,” the coach said.
