Center upsets Tigers, 76-74

By Dannie Oliveaux

CENTER — Jaterious Evans hit two free throws with 15.3 seconds left as the Center Roughriders upset the No. 1-ranked Silsbee Tigers, 76- 74, before a packed crowd on Dec. 19.

The win was not certain, not even in the final seconds. In fact, the final 15 seconds took nearly four minutes to complete.

Six-foot-5 Reggie Daniels’ block of Kalon Barnes’ shot at the rim started the transition that led to Evans being fouled and going to the line for two.

Tigers explode for 25-0 run in third for win over Ozen

 By Danny Reneau

In the Dec. 5 home game against the Beaumont Ozen Panthers, Silsbee head coach Joe Sigler faced an unusual situation as the Tigers entered their eighth game of the season.

He suddenly had an influx of players.

The Tigers’ roster that hit the floor included seven players who were straight off the football field and with one  practice behind them.

“I did not tell them (the players) but I tried to script the first half,” said Sigler. “I have got to know that I won't be afraid to put them in the game (speaking of the football players that just joined the basketball team).”

Tigers pound Bay City, 52-21, to reach 4A regional semifinal

By Danny Reneau

 

HUMBLE — The Silsbee Tigers advanced to the UIL Class 4A Division 1 Region 3 semi-finals with a convincing 52-21 win over Bay City on Nov. 24 at Turner Stadium. It was the Tigers’ six consecutive win of the season.

The Tigers (7-4) have slowly been putting all the parts together this season as they have shown steady improvement all year. But it was time for the defensive secondary and the offensive line to shine. Bay City quarterback Dylan Davidson, who had thrown for more than 2,000 yards and rushed more than 1,000 yards, had problems throwing and running the ball against Silsbee’s defensive front seven and secondary. While the defensive front kept Davidson bottled up most of the game, the secondary’s coverage limited big plays. He completed 16 of 24 passes for 162 yard and a pair of touchdowns, while gaining 51 yards on 21 carries. He was intercepted once.
