Paris F-S boys 51, TCT 25

The Paris Frosh/Soph team won their opening game of their Holiday Tournament over neighboring Tri County by the score of 51-25 Friday morning.

The Tigers received scoring contributions from nearly the entire roster, as all the players saw action.

Kody Crampton led the way with 11 points while  Landen Englum added 8 points and Garrett Larrance and Donald Lee each netted 6.

Larrance paced the Tigers in the opening quarter, netting all of his points off of free throws from tough drives to the basket, helping to put the Tigers up 8-2.

Paris received three pointers from Lee and Crampton to go up 10 with less than two minutes left. Tri-County got a quick layup and then made three’s from Hutchinson and Graham on their final two possessions, with the latter at the buzzer to finish the quarter on an 8-0 run.

Scoring for both teams tapered off in the second quarter. The Tigers got buckets from Braylon Nugent with a floater and rebound layup, Reed Stuck on a fast break and Crampton as they pressed when they could after their scores. The Tigers got three point happy in the latter stages of the third, but weren’t able to connect, going into the half up 22-14.

Crampton scored the first eight points of the third quarter for Paris with a floater and eventually two three-pointers. The Titans got another set of threes from Hutchinson and Graham in the quarter who led their team in scoring with 12 and 6 points each.

Landen Englum grabbed his six points by finishing the quarter with a three point foul play, and nailing a long three as the buzzer expired.

Up 38-22, Paris opened the quarter with another three from Lee as well as layups from Fox Davis and Drew Pinkston. Dalton Hughes also got in on the action with an arcing three pointer and Brady Crippes had a rebound putback.
