Troup hits 9 treys to eliminate Jefferson 66-58 District round

CARTHAGE — To say Troup had the hot hand from beyond the arc Tuesday would be an understatement.

The Tigers popped in nine long balls which enabled Troup, the District 18-2A co-champions, to claim a  66-58 win over the Jefferson Bulldogs in Class 2A Region II bi-district win at Bulldog Gymnasium in Carthage on Tuesday evening.

Marcus Kincade came off the bench with five second quarter points to spark a 21-6 spurt after trailing 19-16 with one period complete.

The team-specialty of 3-point shooting was evidenced as well with seven in the first half, back-to-backers by Hunter Clark, and a buzzer-beating trey from Richard ‘Chick’ Lacy made the largest lead of the game at the break with a 37-25 cushion.

Jefferson made a run to close it back within 43-39 until Lacy busted two more treys to push the Tiger lead back to 52-37 at the two-minute mark of the third period.

“I thought our kid’s rallied around each other and it was a total team effort tonight,” said Troup first-year head coach, Jody Sorey. “Tonight we played about as well as we have played in a few weeks and that was good to see.”

Lacy led all scorers in the game with 23-points while teammates, Clark and Bradly Stewart were in double-digits with 13- and 10-points respectively.

The Bulldogs (18-12), were paced by Terrance Whitaker with 19-points. Jefferson point guard, David Police canned one trey and scored 14 points and Devonte Singleton rounded out the double-digit scorers with 10 points in the setback.

Jefferson ends the season with a 18-12 record.

Troup advances to play Palestine-Westwood late this week at a time and location to be announced.

    Jacksonville athletic director/head football coach Chris Taber said that DeJoran “D. J.” Wright, former co-defensive coordinator at Palestine High School, was a logical choice to take over as the Tribe's new defensive coordinator for several reasons — most importantly was Wright's “X's and O's” philosophy.

    One would probably be hard pressed to find any summer youth sports camp with a more streamlined approach than was found at the Jacksonville Fightin' Maiden Basketball camp, which took place this week at the Jacksonville High School Gymnasium.

    “We just asked the young ladies for two things,” Tony Harris, Jacksonville High School head girl's basketball coach, stated on Wednesday. “First, we wanted them to have fun and secondly we wanted them to learn control — to be able to control their eyes, their body and the (opposing) defender.”
