NEW WAVERLY BASKETBALL — Bulldogs defeat Trinity in final regular season home game

NEW WAVERLY — Since it was the last time New Waverly’s senior boys would play together in their home gym, the Bulldogs made sure Tuesday night was a memorable one with a 62-53 victory against Trinity.

Seniors Michael McBride and Clayton Swor tallied 18 points apiece, while fellow senior Kasey Spivey added 15 points of his own in the victory.

When it came down to it, the Bulldogs just wanted to protect their house. They were also trying to protect their playoff chances as the sole No. 2 team in District 24-2A.

New Waverly (8-4 in District 24-2A) did its part Tuesday.

“It was just really important because if we didn’t get this game, we could’ve found ourselves in a three-way tie for second place in the district,” Spivey said. “It’s important in the last game at home for us to make a statement before we go into the playoffs.”

Swor credited his first half shooting spree to good ball movement by his teammates. Trinity kept the game tight until the end of the third quarter but had no answer for the senior trio of Swor, McBride and Spivey.

The Bulldogs also received contributions from senior Ty Coleman, who knocked down a 3-pointer in the second quarter. Deon Scott added five points. Mason Markham chipped in with two points and Cameron Fisher provided a spark inside.

“We wanted to go out there and have fun,” McBride said. “But it was a critical game so we knew we had to get it done.”

New Waverly finishes the regular season with road games against Anderson-Shiro and Onalaska.
