Lions stay under control at JNT

(Continued)

MOORE —

Moore’s Brayden Powell had a game high 20 points. Jaylon Wilson scored 14 points and was named the tournament MVP. Justin Beam added 13 points in the win.

Patrick Hawkins paced the Pride with 17 points. Justin Smith added 12. Lattin, who has signed to play at the University of Oklahoma, was held to 10 points.

“The game definitely could have turned out a different way. I really wish we didn’t play at Moore,” Lattin said. “We played hard. We could have played way smarter, made better decisions and took the game out of the refs’ hands.”

The Pride grabbed the early first quarter lead as Lattin was able to knock down a couple of quick jumpers in the paint. But it was the RCHA guards ability to hit 3-pointers and drive to the rim that put them up 19-13 after one period.

The game got testy as the refs began to asses technical fouls and intentional fouls. That included three on the Pride.

But the Lions were able to keep their composure the most and went into halftime leading 34-33 at halftime.

“I was telling my team to stay disciplined,” Howell said. “We don’t act like that. We have more character than that. I apologize to the Moore community for that game. I am glad my boys kept their character. All the blame will fall on someone else. Not us. I’m very proud of my boys. I am proud of their character. And I am proud they are the Moore champions.”
