Leonard Lady Tigers reach Leonard finals

LEONARD —   One Leonard team reached the finals while another lost in Friday’s semifinals of the 53rd Annual Leonard Holiday Basketball Tournament.

  The Leonard Lady Tigers gained tonight’s 7 p.m. girls championship game with a 54-37 victory over Farmersville in the Friday’s semifinals. Leonard took charge in the first half, building leads of 23-9 and 34-12 through the first two quarters.

  Kimmy Blackburn pumped in 22 points to lead the victors.

  Haven Neal topped Farmersville with 13 points.

  Leonard will face No. 19 state-ranked Alba-Golden, which beat Pottsboro 51-38 in its semifinal game. Kaylee Bizzell and Macie Arrington both fired in 14 points to lead the victors.

  Whitewright kept the Leonard Tigers out of the 8:20 p.m. boys championship game, handing them a 52-46 loss in Friday’s semifinals.

  Nik McCain brought Leonard to within 46-44 with 2:53 when he converted a three-point play.

  But Whitewright worked on the clock with a delay game and then got six free throws from Mason Riggins, Dane Robinson and Jefferson Ballard during the final 35 seconds to preserve the victory.

  Riggins, whose older brother Matt Smith plays in college for the Toledo Rockets, dominated inside to pump in a game-high 19 points. Desmond McNeil added 12 points and Robinson chipped in 10 for Whitewright.

  Laine Albert led Leonard and all scorers with 24 points.

  Leonard dropped down to the 5:40 p.m. third-place game.

  Whitewright will face Whitesboro in the boys championship game after the Bearcats outdefensed Anna, 36-25.

  Ryan Schuessier and Hayden Nikirk both led Whitesboro with nine points.
