JOSH BROWN
Sports Editor

Splitting games on the final day solidified a middle-of-the-pack finish for Hutsonville-Palestine's boys' basketball team at the Tri-County Turkey Tournament Friday (Nov. 29).

The Tigers picked up their second consecutive win in the tournament with a 71-68 win over Martinsville to start the day, then dropped a 64-55 decision to eventual champion Fithian-Oakwood in their final game of the tournament at Shiloh High School to wind up in fourth in the six-team tournament.

Against Martinsville, it was a tale of two halves, as Hutsonville-Palestine jumped out to a big lead, then had to fend off a late rally to preserve the victory.

Hutsonville-Palestine held a 17-12 lead after one quarter, then outscored Martinsville 24-11 in the second quarter to extend their advantage to 41-23 at halftime. Martinsville used a 20-16 third quarter to make the score 57-43 heading into the final period, then outscored Hutsonville-Palestine 25-14 in the fourth quarter before the Tigers held on for the win.

Evan Newlin led the Tigers with 22 points, six rebounds, two steals and one assist, while Adam Pickering posted 16 points, six assists, two rebounds and one steal. Gary Higginbotham contributed 10 points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals, Kurtis Plew netted nine points, two rebounds and one steal, Kainen Pettigrew collected eight points, two rebounds, one assist and one blocked shot and Dylan Salee totaled six points, three rebounds, three assists and one blocked shot.

Martinsville was led by Grant Haenig with 22 points, while Lucas Skinner tossed in 21 and Sebastien Herrera scored 15.

Against Fithian-Oakwood, the Tigers had a disastrous start, then saw a valiant effort fall just short. Hutsonville-Palestine found themselves down 25-7 after one quarter, but the Tigers closed the gap to 41-29 at halftime. Hutsonville-Palestine then outscored Fithian-Oakwood 15-9 in the third quarter to pull within 50-44, but Fithian-Oakwood won the fourth quarter 14-11 to end the Tigers' comeback bid.

Pickering led Hutsonville-Palestine with 18 points, three assists, two steals and one rebound, while Newlin - who was named to the All-Tournament Team - totaled 17 points, seven rebounds, three steals and three assists. Higginbotham posted eight points, three rebounds, one steal and one assist, Plew collected seven points, eight rebounds, six steals and two assists, Gavin Besing recorded three points, four steals, three rebounds and three assists and Salee added two points and one rebound.

Brevin Wells led Fithian-Oakwood with 18 points, while Josh Young and Elijah Harden added 17 and 10 points, respectively.

In other games Friday, Champaign Judah Christian beat Paris JV 52-23 and Tri-County 72-46, Tri-County edged Oakwood 70-65 and Martinsville downed Paris JV 53-42.

Fithian-Oakwood and Champaign Judah Christian both finished with 4-1 records, but Oakwood was awarded the title due to the head-to-head tiebreaker. Tri-County came in third with a 3-2 mark, followed by Hutsonville-Palestine at 2-3 and Martinsville and Paris JV with 1-4 marks.

Hutsonville-Palestine (2-3) will play at Red Hill Tuesday at 6:15 p.m.
