CHS Boys Hoops: Tigers fall to fourth place with 79-74 loss to Whitehouse

Corsicana — The Tigers had a chance to close out their biggest win of the season Tuesday night. They learned you have to execute to get there.

Corsicana had crucial turnovers in a tight game, and it turned on the Tigers as Whitehouse pulled out a 79-74 victory in a battle of second-place teams in 16-4A at Tiger Gym.

Whitehouse moved into second place in district with a 4-2 record in 16-4A. The Tigers fell to 3-3 and in fourth place in district.

The Tigers had a 72-70 lead with 2:02 left in the game — and the ball — when things turned on them.

Mike Lewis, who had a hot hand from outside, missed a contested 3-pointer, but Jamaal Evans grabbed the rebound to save the possession. Instead of resetting the offense with the lead, Evans tried a putback that missed and Whitehouse’s Pat Mahomes grabbed the rebound and the Wildcats grabbed a victory.

Mahomes made two free throws to tie the game at 72-72. His teammate, Jake Parker, then came up with a steal at midcourt and made a layup for a 74-72 lead with 33 seconds left.

Corsicana’s execution lapsed again as Mahomes made a steal on the sideline and drove all the way for a dunk and a free throw for a 77-72 lead with :26.3 seconds left.

Mahomes had 34 points to lead the Wildcats. Jaylon Dews also had a huge game for Whitehouse with 22 points.

Lewis led Corsicana with 20 points. Ralph Watts had 12 points, including nine in the fourth quarter.

The Tigers led 34-33 at halftime and 57-56 after the third quarter.

  • GC Basketball/Baseball: Mildred's Connor Hill sees life clearly

    There was never any doubt for Connor Hill, never any question about what he would do or how he would do it.
    Sure, there was that meeting with his mother and father and talks with the doctor when he was 10, talks and meetings that came accompanied with worry and concern.
    But never from Connor.
    He just never dwelled on the fact he played sports with one eye. He didn't worry or talk about it when he was 10 and he never talked about it at Mildred High, where Hill emerged as a star on the basketball court and baseball diamond.

    Am I just that old, or have amateur athletics gone absolutely nuts these days? On second thought, don’t answer that unless it’s yes to the nuts part.
    High School and college basketball are on the verge of being totally ruined by AAU basketball. Top roundball prospects are identified by the junior high level if not earlier.
