Tatum & White Oak advance to regional final

Posted: Updated:

SFA's Johnson Coliseum is sure to be rocking on Saturday afternoon. 

District rivals Tatum and White Oak will meet for the third time in 2013.

Tatum advanced to the regional final, after beating Jarrell 61 to 44.  Robbie Rockwell led the way for the Eagles scoring 34 points. 

Senior Javolick Garrett added 16 points.

"It's super exciting," said Garrett.  "This time we're trying win the championship, go to state and win it this time."

White Oak followed with a win over Salado 63 to 44. 

Kris Anderson scored 19 points for the Roughnecks.  The defending 2A state champs are now one win from a return trip to Austin. 

White Oak beat Tatum twice in district, including a one point win at the buzzer in February.

"After the game when we came back and won at the buzzer that's all we've been hearing is they want another shot at it," said Anderson. 

Tatum will get a chance at redemption.  The Eagles and Roughnecks play Saturday at noon.

"It's us and Tatum, a lot of hoopla around that," said White Oak coach Ron Boyett.  "For us and the kids it's just a game and you want to play your best and keep on playing."
