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 Baseball/Softball: Mildred names Zamzow new baseball coach; AD Chambliess to coach softball again

         The Mildred Eagles didn’t have to go far to find a new baseball coach to replace Aaron Tidwell, who left the diamond to take the job as the principal of Mildred High School.
        On Saturday, Mildred named softball coach Brett Zamzow its new baseball coach as Zamzow, who was Tidwell's assistant for five years,  moves back to baseball after spending a year coaching softball.
        To complete the move Mildred Athletic Director Billy Dan Chambliess will take over the softball team. Chambliess, who is the head football coach, spent fours years coaching softball before becoming the school’s AD last year. All four of his teams won district titles.
