  Jlynn Thompson fired in 37 points to lead the Sherman Bearcats to a 64-57 win over the Greenville Lions on Tuesday in District 13-4A action at the Lions Den.

  Tre Mask added 13 for Sherman, which evened its season  record at 12-12. The Bearcats are now 3-9 in district.

  Justin Wade banked in 21 points to lead Greenville, while Collen Wilburn added 16.

  The Lions fell to 12-12 overall and 4-8 in district.

  “It’s a tough loss for us,” said Greenville coach Marcus Smith. “ We could never get any rhythm consistently on offense. We got outhustled on the offensive boards. We really didn’t play good defense. We had many opportunities to tie the ballgame, but either we turned the ball over or made poor offensive decisions.”
