The Apaches showed grit and heart and could have given up, but no...instead, they'd rally from 12 points down in the second half as San Jac fans were punching their ticket to the Region XIV final.
But not so fast, said the Apaches, coming from behind but not using their 3 ball game. Converting just one from downtown. Playing inside, making right shot selections they'd crawl out of a hole. But still they needed some luck, in sports you make your own luck. Brian Warren went to the line is Apaches trailing 63-64, he made both free throws and TJC wins it 65-64. Setting up an all East Texas final, they'll play Kilgore, perhaps the surprise of the tournament seeded 9th.
Lady Rangers also advance playing savvy ball to earn their right to play San Jac they tip at 4pm Saturday. The men's final begins at 7pm Saturday night.
