The Tiger boys on defense against Cusick last Friday were formidable. Eric Johnston (#21) and Jett Nelson (behind the shooter) gang up to prevent the basket. Jaden Hunt (#24) and Camden Weber (#3) await the outcome. Tigers prevail by a score of 82-55.

The Tigers and Panthers were evenly matched in the first quarter, with Odessa a little slow finding its rhythm.

Moffet found himself closely guarded at the outset, but finally broke out to score a total of 40 points via six 3-pointers and 10 field goals. Marcus King added another 12 points and Camden Weber 10.

Weber was the top rebounder with nine. The team as a whole had seven steals.

Odessa vs. Curlew

On Saturday, January 18, the Tigers traveled to Curlew to take on the Cougars, winning 68 to 29.

Od 28 26 11 3 68

Cur 3 8 8 10 29

Ryan Moffet scored 31 points, with teammates Jacob Scrupps and Marcus adding nine points each and Jaden Hunt adding 8.

King led the rebounding with nine, and Moffet was the lead thief with four steals, although almost all of the other Tigers also had steals.
