Bears net playoff berth; WO-S drills Buna

LITTLE CYPRESS — Playing top-notch defense and riding the hot hand of guard Jace Robertson, the Little Cypress-Mauriceville Bears clinched a playoff berth Tuesday night at The Bear Cave by dismantling the Lumberton Raiders 46-32.

The Bears (19-12, 8-4) dominated the game from the onset, outscoring the Raiders (5-7 in district) 14-7 in the first period and 16-7 in the second to take a commanding 30-14 edge going into intermission.

The Raiders had no answer for Robertson early on as he drilled three three-pointers in the first quarter and finished with 20 points overall.

Robertson canned another trey in the second period and had 14 points at the half.

The Raiders used up a lot of clock on just about every time they went to their offensive end ans simply struggled from the field and the free-throw line throughout the contest. Despite eating a ton of the time off the clock, they usually came away empty-handed.

Trumaine Elmore had seven points and seven boards for the Bears, all in the first half.

Taylor Peveto finished with 10 points for the Bears while post Blake Fuss added six points and a game-high 11 rebounds.

The Bears outrebounded the Raiders 27-18.

LC-M stretched its lead to 38-21 at the end of the third period.

The Raiders outscored the Bears, who had nine of their 17 turnovers in the period, 11-8 in the last eight minutes.

Jansen Wahl led the Raiders with 14 points, nine of them coming in the fourth period. Guard Tim Rhodes had six points while Shane Spence led the Raiders with five rebounds.

Lumberton, which finished with just 12 turnovers, didn’t help itself from the free-throw line, going just 8-of-20. The Bears were 9-of-14 from the charity stripe.

LC-M will visit Beaumont Central Friday and will close out the regular season at home next Tuesday against Vidor. The playoffs will start for the Bears either Feb. 17 or 18.

WO-S boys 89, Buna 68

WEST ORANGE — The West Orange-Stark Mustangs cruised to a 89-68 District 21-3A victory over the Buna Cougars at Mustang Gym Tuesday night.

Laquarious Paige led the first-place Mustangs (23-7, 10-0) with 24 points.

Chase Rutledge aided the balnaced Mustangs with 19 points.

The Mustangs will head to Orange COunty rival Bridge City Friday night before taking on Silsbee in a showdon next Tuesday in the Montagne Center.
