Corsicana — Jordan Johnson came back after missing Friday's game with a big effort, scoring 12 points as Hubbard survived an intense game with district foe Frost, winning 46-42 in the Third-place Game Saturday night.

Dylan Harris had a solid game inside for Hubbard, scoring 10 points. D'Warren Simmons, the Jaguars' most consistent scorer in the tournament, added eight points.

Danial Steels, an all-tournament selection, finished with 12 points. Andrew Jackson added 10 points for the Polar Bears, who were playing in their tournament of the season.

Blooming Grove 61, Rice 53: In what was one of the best games of the tournament so far, the Blooming Grove Lions outlasted the Rice Bulldogs in a 61-53 thriller in the Boys Consolation Final on Saturday afternoon.

The game was close all the way up to the finish. Rice took a 37-35 lead into the fourth quarter, but couldn't stop Juanya Pyburn and the Lions who outscored the Dogs 26-16 in the fourth, 13 of which came from Pyburn.

Pyburn had a huge day for the Lions, scoring 30 points while also grabbing 7 boards. Rice's offense was powered by a 24 point, 11-rebound performance by Dalton Pike.

Olivia Farmer, Shelby Adamson, and Maddie Moore all tallied 14 for the Lady Eagles.
