With the El Paso Tigers in 5th place in the district, they knew this was a must win to stay in playoff contention. Starting the game smart by finding Fernando Villegas under the basket and him earning 11 points in the first half, the Tigers went into halftime with a 31-19 lead.
With Jackson Yellen making it rain from the 3-point mine and leading the Tigers with 16 points, El Paso cruised to a 68-50 victory. The Tigers are hoping to finish the season with a couple of more victories, to try and move into 4th place in the district and make the playoffs.
Next up for the Tigers will be when they travel to Canutillo to take on the Eagles on Friday. The rockets will host the Bowie Bears on Friday.
