FEB 6

(ROCKDALE)–THE ROCKDALE VARSITY BASKETBALL

TEAMS BOTH WON THRILLERS AS THEY SWEPT TROY ON

THE ROAD FRIDAY NIGHT.

THE ROCKDALE LADY TIGERS PUT THEMSELVES

IN A PRIME SPOT FOR PLAYOFF POSITIONING AS THEY

WON A THRILLER, 51 TO 50 AT TROY FRIDAY.

THE LADY TIGERS HELD A 7 POINT LEAD GOING

INTO THE 4TH QUARTER, BUT THAT LEAD VANISHED AS

TROY MOUNTED A COMEBACK. TROY’S KAYCEE

CAVANAUGH SCORED A BUCKET TO GIVE TROY A

46 TO 45 LEAD WITH 1:23 TO GO IN THE GAME.

IN THE CLOSING MOMENTS, ROCKDALE’S T’NIYAH

MILES FOULED CAVANAUGH WITH :17 SECONDS REMAINING

IN THE GAME, WITH THE GAME TIED AT 49. CAVANAUGH

HIT ONE OF 2 FREE THROWS TO GIVE TROY A 50 TO 49

LEAD, THEN THE TROJANNETTES TIED UP THE BALL IN ORDER

GET POSSESSION WITH JUST UNDER 5 SECONDS REMAINING.

BUT, AS TROY TRIED TO INBOUND THE BALL,

CIARA MILES GOT THE STEAL, DROVE DOWN THE COURT,

AND LAID IT UP FOR THE GAME WINNER AS THE BUZZER

SOUNDED.

ROCKDALE LADY TIGER HEAD COACH DANIELLE

FROGGATT SAYS THE CHAOS AND EXCITEMENT OF THE

MOMENT WAS ALMOST TOO MUCH…(DFROG4)

“WE WERE EXCITED. I THINK FOR A MOMENT,

I WAS LIKE, ‘WHAT JUST HAPPENED?’ I THINK WE ALL

WERE. AND SO, I WAS TRYING TO PREVENT THE

BENCH FROM BEING ON THE COURT. THAT’S ONE

THING, I DIDN’T WANT A TECH, BECAUSE YOU NEVER

KNOW. I DIDN’T WANT THAT TO LOSE IT FOR US RIGHT

THERE. BUT AT THE SAME TIME, IT WENT IN, WE’RE

EXCITED. WE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW THE BUZZER WENT

OFF. THAT’S HOW EXCITED WE WERE. WE WERE

JUMPING UP AND DOWN. I MEAN, UNTIL WE SAW

ALL THE GIRLS GOING, AND THEN SOME FANS GOING,

WE WERE LIKE, ‘THE GAME’S OVER?’ WE WERE

STANDING THERE. I DON’T KNOW.”

THE LADY TIGERS PUT THEMSELVES IN POSITION

TO BATTLE FOR 3RD PLACE IN DISTRICT.

THE ROCKDALE TIGERS WON BACK TO BACK

DISTRICT GAMES FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 8 YEARS

AS THEY BEAT TROY ON THE ROAD 31 TO 29 FRIDAY

NIGHT.

CHANDLER MILTON’S STEAL AND BASKET GAVE

TROY A 29 TO 26 LEAD WITH 2:59 TO GO IN THE GAME.

MOMENTS LATER, DE ANDRE STEPHENS HIT A 3 POINTER

TO TIE THE GAME AT 29 ALL WITH 1:55 LEFT. IN THE

FINAL MINUTE, TROY HAD POSSESSION TIED AT 29 BUT

CAME UP EMPTY. THE TIGERS GOT THE BALL BACK

WITH 14 SECONDS LEFT, AND CONSUMED THE LAST SEVERAL

SECONDS OF THE CLOCK. A TIGER SHOT MISSED, AND

DE ANDRE STEPHENS GOT THE REBOUND AND THE

PUTBACK AT THE BUZZER TO WIN IT, 31 TO 29. STEPHENS

AND CHRIS PEREZ EACH HAD 9 POINTS FOR THE TIGERS.

ROCKDALE TIGER HEAD COACH SEAN LEXIMA

EXPLAINS HIS REACTION WHEN HE SAW STEPHENS’

PUTBACK GO IN…

“I WANTED TO SEE IF THE OFFICIALS WERE

GOING TO SAY THAT IT WAS GOOD OR NOT, BEFORE

I GOT TOO EXCITED. SO, I THOUGHT IT WAS, I

FIGURED IT WAS, BUT I WANTED TO MAKE SURE THEY

COUNTED THAT BASKET.”

THIS WAS THE 2ND CONSECUTIVE DISTRICT WIN

FOR THE TIGERS, AFTER THEY BEAT MCGREGOR 73 TO 62

AT TIGER GYM LAST FRIDAY.

THE TIGERS HAVE WON BACK TO BACK DISTRICT

GAMES. IT’S THE FIRST TIME THE TIGERS HAVE WON

BACK TO BACK DISTRICT GAMES SINCE 2015–THAT

OF COURSE WAS THE YEAR THE TIGERS WENT UNDEFEATED

IN DISTRICT AND ADVANCED TO THE REGIONAL SEMIFINALS.

SATURDAY DID NOT GO AS WELL FOR THE TIGERS

AND LADY TIGERS. THE TEAMS TRAVELED TO LORENA

SATURDAY MORNING IN A MAKE UP GAME RESCHEDULED

FROM TUESDAY DUE TO WEATHER. BOTH LORENA TEAMS

ROCKDALE 20 TO 6 TO PUT THE GAME AWAY.

THE ROCKDALE TIGER BOYS FELL HARD TO

NUMBER 4 RANKED LORENA 72 TO 33 AT LORENA SATURDAY.

LORENA LED 21 TO 4 AFTER ONE QUARTER, AND LED
