PREP ROUNDUP: Titans too hot for Broncos to handle

Three Memorial scorers reached double figures, and the Titans ran their winning streak to seven games by running away from host Dayton for an 84-37 win Friday in boys basketball.

Steven Wilson scored a game-high 20 points, Jaden Conner had 15 and Nate Clover scored 12 for the Titans (17-6, 4-1 in 21-5A), who will host Nederland on Tuesday in a crucial district contest. Nederland (18-8, 4-0) had the off-date Friday.



Memorial 44, Dayton 20

In Port Arthur, Julia Sion made 5 of 8 shots from the floor and was a rebound shy of a double-double with 13 points in a 24-point rout of the Broncos.

Memorial (11-10, 5-1 in 21-5A) got balanced scoring with eight points each from Denisha Anderson, Emily McElroy and Jackie Gibbs.

The Titans will visit Nederland on Tuesday.


PNG 48, Vidor 39

In Vidor, Mollee Priddy was hard to stop, to say the least.

Priddy knocked down 31 points and had 11 rebounds, and the Indians (16-10, 4-2 in 21-5A) ended a two-game slide with a road win.

“Mollee really stepped up this game,” Indians coach Kara Skinner said. “We challenged her to get to the basket and come up with rebounds and she responded in a huge way.”

Maylin Stampley had six points and three rebounds and Julissa Gomez totaled five points, eight rebounds, three steals and six deflections for PNG, which will visit Cleveland next Friday.


Bridge City 51, Lumberton 48

In Bridge City, the Cardinals (19-10, 3-3 in 22-4A) broke a tie in district standings with the Raiders (2-4 in 22-4A) by scoring a narrow victory.

The teams were tied at 30 before Bridge City outscored Lumberton 12-9 in the third quarter. That would prove to be the difference.

Madison Fischer scored 15 points and Kyndall Harrison had 10 for BC. Hannah Wiegreffe pulled down 10 rebounds in the win.

Audrey Postula led Lumberton with 22 points.



PNG 2, College Station 1

At the Indian Kickoff, the Indians (4-1-1) scored their first-ever victory over a team that knocked them out of the UIL playoffs four times and won a close game in this tournament last year.

Grace Seymour accounted for both PNG goals on free kicks. Halley Smith saved a goal off a corner by heading it out while protecting the post.

Other scores from the Indian Kickoff are not available.
