 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).”
