FLORESVILLE -- After another week of district play, which included wins over Kennedy and Southside, the Floresville Tiger basketball team remains in second place, and is on pace to make a good showing in the postseason.

Floresville took on the Kennedy Rockets last Tuesday night at Edgewood Gym. The Tigers took the lead early and never looked back. Outrebounding and outscoring Kennedy, the Tigers went into the locker room at halftime with a 20-point lead.

The second half was more of the same, as the Tigers continued to pressure the Rockets, putting 20-plus points on the scoreboard each quarter. The Tigers finished with an 83-42 victory.

Floresville distributed the ball well. Point guards Jaron Medina and Derek Moczygemba led the Tigers in assists with four each. Three Tigers finished in double digits, including Charlie Albert and Estevan Mendiola with 18 points apiece, and Darren Orth finished with 11 points. Albert finished with another double-double, adding 12 rebounds. Mason Ray and Moczygemba added nine boards each.

Next, the Tigers took on the Southside Cardinals in a district matchup on Friday night in Floresville. The Tigers took the lead early, shooting 67 percent from the field, and finishing the first quarter 8 points up on the Cardinals. But the Cardinals weren’t ready to fly home. The Tigers’ poor shooting in the second quarter and a few turnovers kept the Cardinals somewhat close, going into halftime down by 10 points.

The Tigers settled down in the third quarter, dominating the boards and hitting a couple of 3’s early on, giving them a more comfortable lead going into the fourth quarter. The fourth quarter was all Tigers, as Floresville put 24 points on the scoreboard and outrebounded the Cardinals 13-1. In the end, the Tigers picked up the 76-43 win.

Medina ran the Tiger offense well, finishing with seven assists and helping put three Tigers in double digits. Albert finished with 23 points, Orth had 18, and Ray added another 14. Albert also added 12 rebounds, finishing with another double-double. The win lifts Floresville to a 6-1 district record, and an overall record of 18-8.

The Tigers will play the next two district games against McCollum and Harlandale in front of a home crowd. The Tigers were set to take on the McCollum Cowboys Jan. 22 at 6:30 p.m.

On Friday, Jan. 25, the Tigers will play in their biggest game of the season, as the district-leading and undefeated Harlandale Indians (7-0) come to town. The district championship is at stake. The Tigers need everyone’s support, as Friday will be “Fill the Stands with Tiger Fans” day. The community is invited to go out and support the Tigers as they try to earn at least a share of the district title, and hand Harlandale its first district loss. Tip-off is set for 6:30 p.m.

Go, Tigers, Go!
