Moving to Class 5A now, it’s 3rd-ranked Fort Bend Hightower hosting the Foster Falcons…
In the first, Foster goes inside to the big fella, 6-foot-8 Deuce Fatheree(like Gather), he puts back his own miss for two for the Falcons.
Hightower answers as Christopher Harris Junior drives along the baseline and dishes it to Markel James for the basket. Hurricanes up by 6.
In the 2nd, Jacory Chatman drives under the hoop and kicks it out to Bryce Griggs who tees it up from long range and nails the three.
More from Griggs, he takes his man off the dribble and drives to the hoop for the layin.
Foster responds by going back to Fatheree who is unstoppable in the lane as he goes up for two more of his team-high 26 points.
But Hightower’s Mick Hale connects for three from the corner and the Hurricanes lead by 12.
Hightower starts to pull away in the third, Harris hit the mid-range jumper along the baseline for two.
Then it’s Harris getting the steal for Hightower, he throws the outlet ahead to Griggs who lays it in for the finish and Hightower wins it, 81-65 is the final over Foster.
