Horn overwhelms Longview in fourth quarter to claim second seed in playoffs
By DEVIN HASSON, firstname.lastname@example.org
If the last week is any indication, Horn is primed and ready for the boys basketball playoffs.
Just three days after taking down 12-5A champion Mesquite for the second time this season, the Jaguars used a dominant fourth quarter to pick up a 61-48 victory over Longview in a seeding game at Tyler Lee High School.
Horn (18-13) earned the second seed out of 12-5A with the win and will play Sachse, the third-place team from 11-5A, in a bi-district playoff game on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Royse City High School.
However, a sluggish third quarter in which they scored only eight points left them in a 40-38 hole.
But Horn saved its best for last, outscoring the Lobos 23-8 down the stretch.
Anthony Sharp had another big game with 20 points, while Alan Hodge scored 13 and Zach Charles added 11.
The Jaguars will be taking on a Sachse team making its first-ever playoff apperance. Longview (20-14) fell to the third seed and will play 11-5A co-champion Rowlett (25-3) on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Lindale High School.
