DEC 8

(ROCKDALE)–THE ROCKDALE TIGERS JUMPED OUT IN

FRONT AND TOOK A BIG LEAD EARLY, BUILT ON THE LEAD

THROUGH THE GAME, THEN HELD ON THROUGH A MILANO

SURGE AS THE TIGERS BEAT MILAM COUNTY NEIGHBOR

MILANO 57 TO 42 AT TIGER GYM TUESDAY NIGHT.

THE TIGERS LED 19 TO 10 AFTER ONE QUARTER.

THE TIGERS GOT FIELD GOALS FROM ROBERT OWENS AND CHRIS

PEREZ TO BUILD THE 9 POINT LEAD. IN THE 2ND QUARTER,

OWENS FOUND HIS SHOOTING RANGE. OWENS HIT TWO

3 POINTERS IN THE 2ND QUARTER AS PART OF HIS 12 POINTS

IN THE FIRST HALF.

THE TIGERS LED 31 TO 16 AT HALFTIME.

IN THE 3RD QUARTER, MILANO’S BIG MAN WESTON

AVRETT GOT ON A ROLL. HE SCORED ON A PAIR OF FIELD

GOALS AND ADDED A PAIR OF THREE POINTERS. HE

CONTINUED TO PROVIDE PROBLEMS FOR THE TIGER

OFFENSE. HIS 6 FOOT 4 HEIGHT WITH LONG ARMS AND

LONG REACH IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MILANO 2-3 ZONE

MADE IT DIFFICULT FOR THE TIGERS TO PENETRATE.

THE LANE. THE EAGLES GOT BACK INTO THE GAME IN

THE 3RD QUARTER AS THE TIGERS WERE HELD TO ONLY

A PAIR OF FIELD GOALS.

THE TIGERS PULLED AWAY IN THE 4TH QUARTER.

AT ONE POINT, MILANO CLOSED THE GAP TO

8 POINTS IN THE 4TH QUARTER, BUT THE TIGERS

USING PRESSURE WERE ABLE TO TURN AWAY THE

EAGLES.

ROCKDALE TIGER HEAD COACH MARCUS MCNEIL

SAYS THE TIGERS DID SOME GOOD THINGS, AND WHILE

IT’S CLEAR THERE’S WORK TO DO, THERE’S A LOT OF

REASON TO BE OPTIMISTIC LOOKING AHEAD…

“I’M PLEASED WITH CERTAIN ASPECTS OF OUR GAME,

BUT WE’VE GOT TO CLEAN UP A LOT OF AREAS THAT

ARE NOT REACHING OUR EXPECTATIONS. BUT WE STICK

TOGETHER WITH OUR FOUNDATION OF CARING FOR

ONE ANOTHER, AND PUTTING OURSELVES SECOND.

I’M HOPEFUL FOR THE FUTURE IN TERMS OF GOING INTO

THE TOURNAMENT THIS WEEKEND, AND THEN ALSO

GETTING INTO DISTRICT AFTER CHRISTMAS BREAK.”

THE TIGERS WERE LED BY ROBERT OWENS AND CHRIS

PEREZ WITH 18 POINTS EACH AND IVAN BONNER WITH 15.

OWENS HAD 4 THREE POINTERS IN THE GAME.

FOR THE EAGLES, AVRETT HAD 19 POINTS. GAEL

ALCALA HAD 11.
