Lady Tigers run away with 70-11 victory over Hillsboro

Corsicana — The Lady Tigers want to win the defining moment of every game they play this season.

In Tuesday’s season opener, it was the opening tip.

The Lady Tigers jumped all over Hillsboro, scoring the first nine points and running away with a 70-11 victory at Tiger Gym.

The Lady Tigers had 24 steals, playing sensational defense. Hillsboro managed only a single basket in the first, third and fourth quarters.

“We played hard,” Prevost said. “We showed what type of team we’re going to be. We can press and get up in your face. We showed Corsicana that we’re going to be a factor.”

Corsicana also hit two 3-pointers among the first three shots it made, a big departure from the Lady Tigers in the first three seasons under Art Prevost. Erica Melendez and Calae Wilson knocked in shots from downtown for an 8-0 lead.

“We’ve spent a lot of time on that,” Prevost said.

The Lady Tigers went on a 25-0 run to take a 36-2 lead with 2:28 left to go in the second quarter. After that, it was just a question of how many points Corsicana would score.

The Lady Tigers had balanced scoring. Tatyana Betts and Wilson scored 12 points each. Destini Lunsford had 10 points. Alexis Baston had nine points.

An overall great opening night for Corsicana as the Lady Tigers’ junior varsity and freshmen also won.

“I was proud of them,” Prevost said. “They took care of what they needed to do.”

Corsicana 70, Hillsboro 11

Hillsboro    2  5  2  2 — 11

  • 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.

    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.

    Minutes after Navarro split a doubleheader with Paris on Wednesday, Navarro softball Coach Jessica Karenke was told her Bulldogs had just been nationally ranked and are now No. 16 in the NJCAA national softball poll.
    She had no idea.
    And she didn't care.
    Karenke is worried about what happens on the diamond, and she had some concerns after Navarro made four errors in the second game that opened the door for Paris to pull off a 7-2 win after the Bulldogs and Ciara Luna controlled the first game with a 4-1 win.
