Tigers defeat Memorial, Uvalde
Floresville’s Chris Albert (11) makes it look easy as he scores a basket against Uvalde. The Tigers defeated the Coyotes, 57-42.
After another week of district play, the Tigers have improved to 10-1 in district.
The then-8-1 Floresville Tigers played the 4-5 Memorial Minutemen last Tuesday night in Floresville. The Tigers shot well the first half and went in at halftime with a 37-23 lead. The Tigers continued to pressure the Minutemen, resulting in turnovers that the Tigers capitalized on. Floresville continued to have the lead throughout the game and finished with a 64-46 win over Memorial.
The Tigers finished with two players in double digits, as Chris Albert scored 13 points, and Zach Chambers had 10. Jared Kotzur led the team in assists and steals with four and three, respectively.
The win kept the Tigers motivated as they took the long ride to Uvalde on Friday night to face the 3-7 Coyotes. The Tigers got off to a good start, shooting 50 percent from the field, and ending the first quarter with a 17-8 lead. The shootout continued in the second quarter with Mason Ray hitting back-to-back 3-pointers, and James Arocha adding one as well. The Tigers hit the locker room with a 36-18 lead.
Floresville’s offense slowed some in the second half, but the Tigers remained in control and finished with a 57-42 win over Uvalde. Vernon Marsh led the Tigers offensively, finishing with 13 points, with Ray adding 10 points. The Tigers pounded the boards, led by Albert with nine; Derek “Mooch” Moczygemba added six, and Marsh finished with five. Mooch led the team defensively with five steals to go with his 9 points, three assists, and six boards. The win keeps the Tigers in the lead for the 29-4A district championship.
The 10-1 Tigers were scheduled to face a tough opponent on Tuesday, playing the 5-6 Medina Valley Panthers at home at 6:30 p.m. This Friday night, Feb. 7, the Tigers will head to San Antonio to play the Kennedy Rockets.
Come out and support your Tigers!
