CORPUS CHRISTI -- After a first round loss to Edinburg, the Floresville Tiger varsity basketball team rattled off three straight victories over Alice, Orange Grove, and Corpus Christi John Paul II to win the consolation championship at the Corpus Christi Calallen Tournament Dec. 28-29.

The first team the Tigers took on was Edinburg, and Floresville struggled early. The Bobcats jumped out to a 21-10 lead after the first period of play, and led 39-15 at the half. The Tigers played better in the second half, outscoring Edinburg 15-12 in the third period and 27-12 in the fourth, but they ran out of time before they could make up the first-half deficit, and fell by the final score of 63-57.

Floresville met Alice in the second round of competition, and wasted little time in putting away the Coyotes, 63-36.

The Tigers led the game 16-8 after the first eight minutes, and went into halftime with a 31-19 advantage. Floresville outscored Alice 19-12 in the third period, and nearly tripled the Coyotes’ efforts in the fourth by scoring 13 points and holding Alice to just 5.

Orange Grove was next on the list for Floresville, and while the Bulldogs put up a better fight, the Tigers still prevailed with a 53-40 victory.

The Tigers had a decent first period, but found themselves trailing by 5 when time expired. The team turned things around in the second period, though, and went into halftime trailing by just a point at 23-22.

Floresville took the lead away from Orange Grove in the third period by outscoring the Bulldogs 16-10. Their aggressive play continued throughout the fourth period, and the Tigers celebrated a come-from-behind win.

The victory over Orange Grove put Floresville into the consolation championship game with Corpus Christi John Paul II. The Centurions came out strong in the first period to put the Tigers in a hole, but Floresville once again proved it had the ability to play from behind.

John Paul led 15-10 after the first stanza, and clung to a 23-21 advantage at the break. The Tigers tied the game and took the lead in the third period with a 15-point scoring effort, and put the game away in the fourth period by outscoring the Centurions 19-10 en route to a 55-44 win.

The tournament was good experience for Floresville, and the consolation trophy was a nice bonus for the Tigers. In addition, Charlie Albert was named to the all-tournament team. Albert scored 60 points during the tournament, including 28 in the consolation championship.
