After suffering a 58-55 loss two weeks ago against conference rival T.W. Andrews, the Trinity boys basketball team bounced back with a 57-41 victory Tuesday night, to split the season series with the Red Raiders.
Trinity made 14-of-15 shots from the foul line and shot 55 percent from the field to win its fourth conference game of the season. Junior Jarrod Rogers led all scorers with 16 points for the Bulldogs.
“This was probably the best game we’ve played in a while. We were patient, we took good shots, were able to run our spread offense, and I’d like to think that our defense was good tonight.” Head coach Tim Kelly said.
The Bulldogs, who were hurt by the three ball in the first meeting, were able to knock down six 3-pointers of its own, and forced Andrews to a below average shooting night.
“We refocused, regrouped, and really played hard.” Rogers said. “Our free-throw shooting definitely helped.”
Trinity led by as many as 22 points in the fourth quarter, and used a spread motion offense to slow the game down in the fourth quarter, sealing the victory. Brandon Earnhardt and David Newcomer each reached double figures as well with 14 and 16 points, respectively.
Andrews turned the ball over 11 times, and could not stop the Bulldogs from hitting shots. The Red Raider were led by Chris Eatmon with 12 points.
Andrews slips to 4-13, 3-3 PAC-6 2A.
Trinity (13-4, 2-3) will travel to Atkins Thursday night.
