Alvarado had a lot of trouble stopping the Freshman Tigers from scoring on Friday to the delight of coach Sam Schuelke.
Glen Rose scored at least 15 points in three of four quarters to win 65-50.
“It was definitely nice to have a good offensive game like we did,” the coach said. “We had several guys step up for one of our better-balanced scoring games.”
Glen Rose led 15-8 after the first quarter.
“Our defense was good early, but we did foul too much because that’s where most of their points came from,” Schuelke said.
After close middle quarters with Glen Rose winning the second (16-14) and Alvarado taking the third (11-10), the Tigers roared in the fourth (24-17).
“That’s probably the biggest quarter we’ve had this season,” Schuelke said. “We got some steals for some easy buckets. We also rebounded well and handled their traps well for some layups.”
Wyatt Goebel scored eight of his team-high 21 points in the second quarter.
“Wyatt hit some outside shots, but also got on the offensive glass for putbacks,” Schuelke said. “He had a good all-around offensive game.”
Tucker Garza scored eight of his 18 points in the fourth. He and Goebel each made two threes.
“Tucker had some silly fouls and got into early foul trouble, which limited his playing time in the second and third,” the coach said. “But he’s a difference maker for us when he’s out there running our offense and with his scoring. We just have to keep him on the floor.”
Bailey Holder scored six of his 12 points in the fourth.
“That’s the best game Bailey has played all year,” Schuelke said. “He did a good job finishing around the basket and played strong; I hope he can keep it up and I was really proud of him.”
Drayton Williams and Dylan Hammond each scored five points, as Hammond scored all of his points in the fourth.
“Hammond was hesitant to look for his shot early in the game, but he loosened up and got some good looks in the second half that he knocked down,” the coach said.
Other scorers included Nick Fowler (2) and Taylor Westbrook (2).
