Area teams have good showings over weekend

MOORE — The Southmoore boys defeated Flower mound (Tx.) 69-59 to seal third place in the John Nobles Basketball Tourney Saturday at Moore High.

Brandon Mosby had the task of slowing down the Rebels’ Devontee Patterson. After a subpar game Friday, Patterson, the son of former NBA star Michael Finley, came with more energy Saturday of the John Nobles tourney.

The SaberCats led 62-54 with 2:05 left in the fourth. The Rebels’ Keenan Holdman was fouled and knocked down two free throw attempts. But the SaberCats broke Flower Mound’s full court press, and Brandon Mosby scored an easy layup.

The ‘Cats got another defensive stop and the Pride fouled Justin Bean, who made 1 of 2.

The Rebels could never get any closer as the SaberCats continued to make free throws to close out the contest.

Bean scored 25 points to lead the ‘Cats’ charge. Chelvin Webb added 15 points and Preston Smith chipped in with 12.

The SaberCats fell to the third place game after losing Friday night to rival Moore. And it was a former teammate who helped put them there.

When Brayden Powell left Southmoore to attend school at Moore last year, it was not on the friendliest of circumstances. So whenever the two schools hook up, no one wants to win more than him.

Powell showed how much it means to him as he helped lead the Lions to a 65-59 victory over the SaberCats.

“It was great,” Powell said. “Especially because we’ve wanted this as a team for a long time. The guys wanted to do it for me because I came from there. We wanted to show we’re a family to.”

With 2:46 left in the game, Jaylon Wilson put the Lions up 54-49 with a pair of free throws. However, Justin Bean answered for the SaberCats with a 3-point play to cut lead to two.
