Risco picks up first win of season in Clarkton tourney

Friday, December 15, 2006

CLARKTON -- The Risco Tigers edged the Southland Rebels 62-61 for seventh place in the Clarkton Holiday Tournament on Thursday.

Risco (1-6), clicking from the outside, led 43-40 after a high-scoring first half.

The Tigers knocked down nine 3's, six from hot-shooting Ricky Davis, in the half.

Employing a zone defense in the second half to slow down Southland's inside game, the Tigers held on, although outscored 21-19, for the team's first victory.

Davis led Risco with 26 points and Kyle White and Kyle Hayes chipped in with 17 and 12, respectively.

Justin Kersey paced Southland's scoring with 23 and Michael George and Ronnie Thompson added 13 apiece.
